    709 striker guide

    Installed a lakeline striker guide in my 709, trigger improved, very smooth, improved accuracy, and big issue no more lite primer strikes.
    The install was easy, the old plastic guide was rough, wish I had made the change months ago.

    I was wondering what was causing the "gritty bump" in the trigger, from what I read it's the hole for the locking device and this guide will take care of it.

    Thanks!

    Here's the link:

    The trigger feel improved on my PT 111 G2 with the striker guide and I recommend the upgrade. The completed job on the trigger was using a heat gun on the side of the frame with the trigger safety blade secured retracted with a wire twister tie. Heat it both sides, release the safety blade...try it in dry fire. If there's still a bump or hitch...do it again.

    The plastic guide was my problem for sure, very rough plastic, the stainless guide produced an entire new gun for me.

    Got mine today!!! Read the instructions and had an OH NO moment when I read the blurb about having to drill something. Turned out it slipped right in my gun w/o any issues. I can tell it's "slicker" than before. Gonna have to tell a buddy who also has a 709.

    The moderator on the Hi-Point forum asked me to write an article about putting the stainless sleeve in so I did. Here's the link, if anyone sees any errors let me know:

    ^^ Whew, what a great write up and display. I suspect that you do this for a living... (and if you don't...you should)

    Well done article! This should be a sticky for our site.

    LOL!!! My wife used to tell me I wrote like I spoke. I would tell her that English IS my foreign language!!! I hated English in school, still don't understand it and no, I don't do it for a living (I'd starve if I did).

    My other "hobby" is O-scale model trains and I've managed to write 5 articles on those. Big thing is my camera skills have gotten better over time, plus a good camera makes a world of difference. I don't have an expensive camera, but it takes good photos. It's a Nikon Coolpix B500.

    The videos I've seen on changing out the sleeve were fine, but I was having to stop/backup so often I figured a few photos and a write up would suit me better.

    Glad you guys found it useful!!!

    It's not mentioned any of the replies to this thread BUT replacing the plastic OEM striker guide with the Lakeline SS striker guide does permanently disable the locking function of the TSS (Taurus Security System). This may not be an issue for many (including myself as I rarely employ the TSS) but I'm certain that it voids the Taurus warranty and may incur liability issues for the owner of the firearm. In the case of the warranty, it would be easy enough to merely swap out the SS guide for the OEM guide if the firearm ever needed to be returned for warranty work. That may not be possible in a liability situation.
    Has anyone used a "dry" lubricant to remedy the grittiness experienced with the OEM striker guide? Perhaps, as already mentioned, the mere presence of the "hole" in the plastic guide is the primary issue and lubrication will do little to remedy the problem? I have a PT740 and admit that I don't fire it enough to have actually noticed or perceived the grittiness to be an issue. On "general principles" the next time I break it down for cleaning, I'm going to have a closer look at the OEM striker guide and at the very least, spray a little "dry lube" into and around the striker channel.
