    If you add the White trigger stop to your p3at, be SURE the hammer will FULLY drop after you've filed the stop. I added a stop to my pf9 and my p3at; I set then both so I could pull up against the stop, apply some more pressure, and it would drop the hammer. The pf9 worked out fine. On the p3at, apparently a little more trigger overtravel is nessessary to pass the hammer block feature. I missed that - my hammer would come back when I pulled the trigger through, but only drop to it's ordinary resting spot. Bottom line, the weapon would not fire. I assumed it was good, and found out the hard way when I went to the range and was treated to click click click rather than bang bang bang. Live and Learn, and thanks to the folks here who helped me figure it out. HTH, Steve

    Re:  Caution - trigger stop

    The White stop is an over-travel stop.  It should be set (filed down) to engage after the gun fires.  It is not a device for staging the trigger.   ;)
