My wife was firing her P3 today at the range when on the third or fourth set, her slide froze! The gun had fired all six rounds, but wouldn't eject the last round. I ended up field stripping the gun and sliding the barrel through the front of the slide to release the empty brass. When I put it back together, I couldn't get the top assembly to slide back onto the frame. I looked and noticed that what I think is either the hammer block or the hammer was stuck in the forward position. I pulled it back and was able to slide the top assembly back onto the frame. We did not fire the gun afterwards. I'm concerned that we may have broken the hammer block spring. Is there a way to tell with out pulling the trigger? Would a single "Dry fire" cause more damage or should I just send it in? Thanks for any help.
