    Pt.99 only works in single action ?

    Hi,l recently got an older pt.99 parts pistol(used,abused,missing grips,trigger bar,pin,trigger bar spring and sear,sear pin and spring,and the firing pin block lever was broke. This is pre-decocker(1990)l believe. I've replaced all the missing parts,looked over the schematic,all seems to be in order....any ideas,where l screwed up?l'm sure,and from what info l've found,it should work in double action...befuddled 😒...any insight,would be appreciated😉🍺🍺👍

    Welcome to the forum from Northern Illinois. Can't be of much help as when my PT 92 AFS broke the locking block and seized up the slide I asked my LGS to send it to Taurus for 28 bucks. They sent it back prepaid in six weeks with a new barrel and other parts.

    Tom, I'm going to move your thread to Gunsmithing as you'll probably get more attention and advice there.

    Are you sure the hammer is a DA/SA hammer. Should be two stops on the lobe. Other than that I would look at the sear arm and verify the engagement is high enough..I just started doing action jobs on the 92 platforms, so not real knowledgeable yet.

    Thanks czechbikr and silverstring...l appreciate the move,and l'm gonna take it apart,and try to see whats up. If l hold up on the trigger bar a little it works in dbl action,and there are two hooks on the hammer....thank you guys for replying 😉🍺🍺🍺👍

    Sounds like the spring under the trigger bar is dislodged or missing, which will cause the trigger bar to flex out when you pull the trigger under the weight of the hammer spring. I believe there's also some other form of retention on the opposite side of the hammer body to keep the bar in step with the hammer in motion. I haven't looked that closely at the 92, but the 945 was one of the variants of the 92 ergonomics in a single stack .45 for years.

    Thanks for the reply Montkun,all springs are intact,but l'm wondering if the trigger bar spring is weak(l've got two,and they're both doing the same thing). If l hold or press the trigger bar,slightly,then it works like it should. I may see if somebody makes a custom spring replacement...thanks again for the input 😉👍🍺🍺
