I don't know but when you figure it out let me know. That sounds exactly like what I did to Twin #1 when I tried to replace the trigger axis a few weeks ago. I removed and reinstalled the frame MANY times following the dissasembly intructions that were just printed and kept having the same issue you describe. I finally sent it to KT and it came back perfect.

Is it possible to assemble it with the hammer block in the wrong position? I know it was a little tricky to get the hammer block where it needed to be while reassembling the frame to the grip. Just a thought.

Okay, you are giving us very vague info here. Can you describe exactly what is happening when you pull the trigger? Is the hammer moving back as it should?

I'm assuming that you did not REMOVE the hammer block. You need something very thin to push the hammer block forward all the way and hold it. then while pushing down on the frame, you slide out your thin metal piece.

Hammer must be forward when reconnecting hamer spring at bottom of grip.

Lately there have been reports of a too-short pin on the trigger axis for the trigger bar to fit into. This sounds like the pin may not be engaging the trigger bar properly. (assuming that the "ell" on the back of the trigger bar has not broken.

Another possibility is the top hook of the hamer spring may be broken but still able to appear like it is all right.

The top of the trigger bar sticks up at the top right rear of the frame/grip. When you pull the trigger, do you see that moving back from start of pull to end?

The trigger bar moves when you pull the trigger.If I hold my finger on the hammer and pull the trigger and let the hammer down when I pull it back I get one click.If I pull the hammer all the way back and hold it with my thum ane take a small screw driver and worke the hammer block forward I get two clicks.Don't know if this helps or not.

So you are saying that the trigger pulls all the way back but the hammer does not fall?

Check the pin that holds the trigger in. It should protrude no more than 1/16 inch from below the trigger. If it sticks out more, then, using a 1/8 pin punch, drive it back in. Be careful not to split the trigger though. Don't hit it too hard.

That's a long shot though. Pull the frame. Check the ell on the trigger bar for any breakage., pull the hammer pin, look at the top loop of the hammer spring where it sits inside the hammer. It may well be broken.

If you pull the trigger back almost all the way you hit another stage then it will drop the hammer at the very end.The gun worked right ,the only thing was a week mag.catch spring witch I replaced.
