    Pt101 hammer not staying cocked after firing

    Well today I decided to completely strip my pr101 for a detailed cleaning, I managed to strip away all the controls except for the hammer grouping, after putting all parts together I went to test fire to make sure everything is good and notice that the hammer won’t stay cocked after firing, also noticed that when the gun is cleared and I push down the slide release the slide closes and the hammer drops as well, I don’t know if I messed something up or a sear is not properly put in place. Any help from you guys would help! As of right now the gun only fires double action.

    Did you reassemble it by memory or were you following a video? I ask only because I had that issue a few years back. Sorry to say I don't recall exactly what the issue was.
    What I did was go to youtube, and follow a video to take the pistol back down and followed the video to reassemble it. There is a great 2 part video that is an easy follow.

    I also had the advantage of having another PT100 laying on the table to use as a guide.

    Don't look at it as a problem, look at is as more of a jigsaw puzzle and find the right piece for the proper fit.

    Good Luck,

    I did watched like a 2 hour video and also used my pt92 to compare one another, and you are right it is like a jigsaw puzzle very complex one though! Lol

    The videos that helped me were a separate part 1 and part 2, neither of which was over 30 minutes each as I recall. I'll take a look here shortly and see if I can relocate them.

    OK, I looked and looked and can not locate the video that I used. The one thing that comes to mind is did the de-cocker assembly get reinstalled correctly, are all of the springs in place?

    It's been a crazy day around here, sorry for not getting back to you sooner. I am of course assuming that you have a model with the decocker/safety.

    Yes I do have the model with decocker/safety.
    And I really never got to strip the decocker/safety lever. I also did not strip down the hammer group. It was mainly the slide bar, the trigger and the hammer sear.

    This really isn't a product problem, should be in the Smithing section

    Check to make sure the sear spring and disconnector are right. They may not be engaging because a spring is in wrong.
