Beretta 92fs Trigger Reset Problem!!!!
Let me begin by saying that I am a gun "noob". Before purchasing this used Beretta 92fs, i have never owned, fired, or held a gun. I will do my best to convey my troubles in a useful manner (please excuse me if the terms i use aren't crystal clear).
I purchased this gun after there was a break-in only a few doors from mine, I was on a budget so I had to buy a used gun. The Beretta is in good shape, I field stripped it and gave it a thorough cleaning/lubricating, downloaded and read the manual, took it to the range, and tried my new pistol out. The first shot at 20 yards hit the center of the target and this was a great feeling; this great feeling was followed with disappointment after pulling on the trigger again only to discover it didn't reset at all. I had to manually reset the trigger (pulling the trigger forward) every shot to finish off the clip. I went home feeling quite defeated and resorted to examining the gun closely to try and figure out the problem for myself. I am quite confident the problem resides in the trigger bar spring or the trigger bar.
First off, I know that the lack of reset is caused by the hook-like shape/indention on the back end of the trigger bar, I assume that after the gun cycles, the slide pushes the trigger bar downward and then the hook catches on (WARNING:NOOB TERM) the little piece of metal which somehow magically triggers the hammer to fall (as you can tell, i haven't disassembled the hammer section of the gun). The indention doesn't allow the trigger bar to reset the trigger because it catches on this piece of metal. At any rate, I would really like to resolve this issue, i will post pictures if needed (which i should probably plan on due to my lack of understanding and terminology). If you have had this problem or know how to resolve it, please let me know. On a closing note I want to say thanks to the creators of this site as I can imagine this will be a real asset to my understanding of firearms.
Thank you for your reply!!
