OK, so I was trying to lube the pistol properly- one instruction had me working the trigger with the slide off to "work" the oil into the trigger while doing this- CLICK and now the hammer is all the way forward...I feel like a real dumba$$, but NOW what do I do...

I PROMISE I will stop fiddling with this thing after this is fixed.... :'(

Re: HELP!!! pulled the trigger with the slide off.

hi and welcome!  unless i'm missing something here, you should be able to just pull the hammer back with your thumb until it resets.  have you already tried that?

Yes- it won't move. I pulled the trigger all the way with the slide off, so it went forward "full force" with nothing to stop it- it is "stuck" all the way forward 90 degrees (if you can picture that...)

Re: HELP!!! pulled the trigger with the slide off.

FIXED!!! took a pencil through the magwell and used the eraser part to force the hammer back- took a surprising amount of force (and the extractor flew off, but no prob...) I am NOW BACKING AWAY FROM THE PISTOL and putting it to bed...maybe tomorrow I'll actually get to shoot it ;D

That would be the ejector unless I'm misunderstanding the story?

Yes- I think you are right- that little piece of plastic set on the aluminum frame...

That sounds odd. Back when I first got my P3AT, I pulled the trigger with the slide off a couple of times (I avoid doing that, now) but the hammer never went so far forward as to end up at 90 degrees and I was always able to just pull it back wth my thumb. Glad you got it straightened out, anyhow.
