Many recommend the use of an eraser to serve as a bump stop for the trigger on the P11.

My question is, has anyone had success with different, non-hardening material?

I have some 3/8 inch medium-hard insulating foam that I will be trying out to see if it works for me.
The eraser fell off.

I have had great success using one of those bumpers that go on the bottom of dvd players. I bought a package of 10 I think it was for just a few bucks at walmart. Found the sweet spot and glued the snot out of it and it hasn't budged since. It stops my trigger about 1/32'' or so after it breaks. Mine had nearly 3/16'' over travel before, yup about 3/16'' shy of a mile :rolleyes:

That looks great, boose... hard to tell from the photo but is the native color black?

Would be nice to be able to ditch the magic market!

Looks clear to me. I think I'll give that a try, it seems like those dont ever get frail or harden or anything

It is clear. You may be able to find them in black with some google searching. The ones I found at walmart were clear.

It looks like what I have, only black. I used these Waxman bumpers in the 1/2'' size.

I don't have my mic with me but I would agree that the thickness is somewhere around .14''. Not quite 3/16'' but definitely a heavy 1/8''. The self adhesive would not hold it in place because of the contour of the grip. I loaded a snap cap and played with it in different spots until I found the spot where the trigger would drop without any extra effort. I didn't want to stage it, just eliminate the excessive over travel. I scuffed the plastic a little in that spot, applied some Krazy glue to the bumper, and stuck it in place. I then pulled the trigger and held it with some force against the bumper until the glue set. The bumper has stayed put for over a year now.

Very helpful information... looks like the .14'' might do the trick.

I'll order a pack and see how they work out.

"Defensas resistentes" on the label... gotta like that, right?!?

I got mine from a liquid pencil 2 pack that they sell at walmart which comes with 6 extra erasers that are already black, and then just superglued one on and filed it down and it has not moved on my P11 or P-3AT.

A member once sent me an interesing one. Using an empty 380 case and a small mallet, he cut one out of a hockey puck. :cool:

I build up many layers of small pieces of electrical tape behind the trigger. Then it gets finished off with a large piece placed over them and the sides glued down to hold it more permanently.

I know the fixes offered here are inexpensive fixes, however, I'm not sure why any p11 owner would not consider the Northwoods trigger - I know this is not a cheap mod, but it solves a lot of problems and improves the feel of the trigger dramatically. I am not a rep for Pops and I get no remuneration for saying so; just a very satisfied customer. After trying all the trigger "tricks" at some point in time with my Pf9's and P11's and P40 to make them feel better and function better, none has been better than the aluminum trigger that Dave offers. Just sayin. . . . . .
