I installed a White Trigger stop on the P-3AT when I brought it home. After about 200 rounds I had to remove about half of the stop thickness in order for the trigger to fire, from about 3/16" to about 3/32". Then I needed to cut that down half again after another 20 or so rounds. Another 15 rounds and no bang, the trigger bottomed on the frame before releasing the hammer. I tore the gun down and found the sear on the hammer had worn some, but found nothing else. Everything else appears fine. I called KT and they sent me a new hammer with all the attached goodies. The replacement hammer wouldn't fit in my frame. It was .025" thicker than the original. So I stoned the new hammer down until it fit and moved freely in the frame. I reassembled the gun and trigger travel is only about .125" from bottoming on the frame again. This without even shooting it. Is there something else to look for? The trigger bar shows no wear. The axis is not broken, and neither is the trigger. Anyone know how to increase trigger bar travel? I'm going to call KT again in the morning and see what they have to say about this.

Thanks in advance.

Is your trigger pin backing out a bit?

I'd show you a link but that site is currently down.
I'll check back later.

TxCajun- Trigger pin is ok, I had it out twice, thought I might have missed a hairline fracture or something, took the magnifying glass to it. I'm stumped on this right now, but then I have been up for20 hours sofar this day and have developed quite a head ache.

PShootR- I looked at that link again, especially the one about the trigger pin. I'm going to delve further into this. My pin does look like it's too far out according to the pics, but the spring is captured by the pin and is in the pin groove. Worth checking again.

We are talking about the steel trigger pin (part #253) that goes up inside the plastic trigger and locks it to the trigger axis (part #254).

I got the impression you are looking at the trigger axis, not the trigger pin inside the plastic trigger.
I believe that is probably your problem.

I put super glue around the pin after I drove it home. Then I painted a dot of paint on the trigger just under the pin. Visual inspection. KT is sending me a new trigger, pin and axis in case it continues to creep.

BTW, just how do you remove that pin if it is installed correctly? Only thing I can think of is to break/cut the trigger off, then pull the pin.

You pretty much got it. I like to dremmel the trigger off BUT LEAVING THE PIN!!!!! Don't cut all the way through or you will really be in trouble.
