    PPK/S DA Trigger

    1st again


    You can change out the hammer spring on a PP or PPK/S and reduce the DA pull some Factory spring is 20lbs. I use a 16lb in my PPK/S's I have test fired and have not had a problem with either ball or hp different brands.
    Springs can be bought at Wolff springs.

    I have field stripped my PPKS far enough to clean it, but I haven't had the opportunity to disassemble it far enough to take out the hammer spring.

    I remember back in the 1970's when everyone carried revolvers. Several foolish people reduced the strength of the hammer spring on their Smith & Wesson revolvers in order to reduce the trigger pull. You can do that with just a screw driver. You don't have to change any springs.

    They ran into reliability problems. Their weapons failed to fire occasionally. Some primers were tougher than others and needed a heavier hammer strike to set them off.

    The lesson we all learned was: "Don't mess with the hammer spring!" How extensively have you tested your PPK/S with the reduced hammer spring?

    Thanks for reminding me about Wolfe Springs. After I get this gun broken in a bit more I may experiment with a reduced strength recoil spring.

    Reliability is the main concern, however. This little gun is going to be my primary concealed carry weapon and I may someday have to depend on it to save my life.

    Good luck with your reduced hammer spring.

    I have test present spring a couple hundred rounds of
    S&B, Fed ,Silver tips, Winchester blunt and Corbon. My other PPK/S is a X state police gun and I have no idea how maney rounds. It has a light spring also. I'm nearing a 100 ofS&B out of it. S&B have very hard primers Thats one reason besides cheap I shoot so much.
    Wolff offers 20 18 17 16 hammer springs I think those correct numbers. Iam aware of S&W trouble .
    I would wear in some if new. Then Maybe change. For Carry in your PPK/S I would use the 90gr HP or the DPX both by Corbon The 90gr are in mine and several Boxes of DPX comming as I now have 6 380's to feed with the new P3AT I picked up yesterday.

    IŽll do that, and works ok the first 600 or 700 rounds, later I have failures. I deeply cleaned the pistol and donŽt dissapear the failures (about 1 in a 20 rounds)

    Since I only use my PPK for sport shooting the cure was buy a lot of those 16 lbs springs to change it when that hammerspring get tired.

    For defense I only will use the 16 lbs spring brand new, works perfect.
