    Pencil #2 to fix trigger pull. TH9

    I used paper towel to get rid of oil on sear and used a pencil.
    Trigger pull is much better, don't know how long this improvement will last.
    Black bearing grease with carbon powder would be better.

    1.remove slide
    2.pull and hold trigger (prevent hammer from fast movement). Now you can see top surface of sear.
    3.wipe sear to get rid of oil on top surface. You can use alcohol and Q-tip.
    4.use a pencil to make sear black as much as you can.
    Done!
    Not sure if oil should be used on top of sear after pencil drawing.

    That's kind of like using a No#2 pencil on your zipper. It works.

    I used spray graphite. It comes out like gang-busters but with a little care it does the job.

    Yeah, it's definitely just putting a thin graphite coat on it. Let us know how long it works for, please. I wonder if a commercial product would work better.

    When you live in a dusty environment, grease and oil can end up worse than leaving it dry. I've seen customers grease the big round-stock bars that commercial forklift forks slide on (for width adjustment) come back from rent so gummed up with dust and sand, you can't move them. Dry graphite is a far better lubricant in that case. You just have to keep applying it regularly, as repeated movement between two sliding surfaces will remove it in relatively short order.

    I have been using Remington DRI-lube for years on strikers , firing pin channels, firing pins.
    it s a Teflon product in a s pray can and dries immediately on contact.
    seems to work well fro me and my guns and prevents the oil/lube hanging on to dust, dirt, gun powder residue it seems.
