The other day I was firing my 3AT with some old WW yellow box ammo that I had. I was doing all right at ~25 yards with it on a life size target. When all of a sudden the trigger upon pulling would not not engage and drop the striker. I took the gun apart and figured out it was the disconnector. It was sticking in the down position instead of poping up. I cleaned it was well as I could and put light lubricant on it. It seems to work, but it is still a little sticky. Has anyone else experienced this failure?

On the rear, right side of the frame is a small movable tab that protrudes into the frame rail which holds the slide. When the slides recoils after a shot, the small tab is pressed down causing the trigger linkage to disengage from the striker-hammer. This tab was staying depressed even after the slide had returned and the striker-hammer was reset. Result was that pulling the trigger would not fire the gun.

Your best bet is to pull the frame out of the grip.

Look inside the grip for plastic mold flash rubbing on the trigger bar.
Or, a slightly bowed trigger bar rubbing on the frame or grip.

While you have the trigger bar pulled, you might as well do a light polishing on it. It makes the trigger a lot smoother.
