i have had one ftf and it was a light primer strike as well. it was with a reload, but i was using winchester primers. i dont know if this is just a coincident or if win uses a little tougher metal in thier primer cups. just my .02 worth.
that would be chambered in the 38 Super!I just purchased a new PT 1911 in 38 auto. The gun shop had 2 identical pistols. I experienced light primer strikes in both pistols whenever I rested my thumb on the safety. Pistols seemed to work great when not using a grip with my thumb on the safety. I plann to call Tauras to see if this is an issue.
My wife has a Colt gold cup .45 and of course thumb on safety works just fine.
I've only had opportunity to shoot 40 rounds of the 38 super (factory ammo).
Anyone else use a thumb on safety grip?
How do you know it won't fire with your finger in front of the barrel? Have you done the experiment?My Pt1911 in 38 super (or even the 45 acps ) will fire upside down, right side up, gangster style on their sides., thumbs anf fingers about anywhere except in front of the barrel.
Not personally!How do you know it won't fire with your finger in front of the barrel? Have you done the experiment?
The Buford brothers? Thumbs and Thumbless?Not personally!
just taking the word of 2 brothers that i know from Alabama that said this was true.---GRiiiin.
And I am betting that they were pretty gunky. I was amazed when I disassembled and cleaned mine. Many say to use a dry lubricant like teflon, if any, as a wet oil will collect carbon and unburnt powder. Or oil it and clean more frequently.I was having the same problem only with Speer ammo. Was advised by "Olfarhors" to take a look at the FP and its channel. I throughtly cleaned the FP and channel, also extractor while in the area, and all has worked fine since.
He-He-He, yea thats their real names~!The Buford brothers? Thumbs and Thumbless?
