First off: I'm looking for help around Mt Hood here in Oregon. So Gresham, Clackamas, etc etc. I do come into PDX a few times a week though so I could meet up with some one there or a good gunsmith there! Anyways, I've got a Zastava EZ9 which is a Sig P226 clone, and quite a nice one at that. It's got good reviews around the internet, it's REALLY accurate and I really enjoy shooting it. I've put 500 or so rounds through it and I enjoy it immensely. It was my car gun for a while and sat in my car... and when I last took it out to go shooting I was getting light primer strikes! ARGH! I was getting light to no primer strikes. I tried various ammo in the gun, and I tried the same ammo in other guns and it mostly certainly is the EZ9. Here is my understanding of the situation. I apologize if I am using the wrong terms: Taking it apart, there is a mechanism in the slide that when you pull the trigger is lifted to allow the striker to travel the entire distance. If this piece is not lifted via trigger pull the striker will not be able to hit the primer on the bullet. This presumably is so as you can use the de-cocker without risking setting off the gun as it will prevent the striker from hitting the primer. So... anyone got some ideas or possibly able to help? I could just bypass the safety feature and not use the decocker... as the first 40 or so times I took the gun out I didn't even know about the decocker feature so I feel I can live without it... but I'd still rather have the gun functioning properly.
