    PK380 Trigger

    My son has a PK380 and the trigger seems stiff to both of us, twice as stiff as the PPK/S. He has had it only a couple
    months and I am not sure if he has fired enough rounds through it to "break it in". Can we expect it to lighten up after a few hundred rounds or is this the way it is for that pistol?

    Tomorrow I pick up my PPK/S to replace my Bersa 383DA. Love the Bersa, but I am down to one clip and can't buy
    any more... it is going in the vault for posterity. Looked at another Bersa but the liked the trigger on the PPK/S
    better and the "we quit making the gun so we quit making the clips... have a nice day" left a bad taste in my mouth.
    I hope the Walther shoots as well as the Bersa.


    Yes, I know it is the "Bond Gun" and no I did not hear the Bond theme while holding it in the gun shop.

    i would do a good tear down and clean the snot out of it. i like the trigger pull on my pk380. it doesn't seem too stiff to me. yours might just need a good cleaning and lubing

    my pk380 was the gun in question. thanks for all the tips. a little polishing and a few hundred rounds later and the trigger broke in nicely.

    PK380 I'm telling you all,It is a very nice pistol. And some people think it's not made good. Then you don't know about walther. The wife is killing bullseye all day long at 25yd.

    Appreciate the input. trigger on my wife's PK380 seems very stiff compared to my sons new sig DAO, that trigger is smooth as silk. May have to take it in to the smith. Hoping after a few hundred rounds it (the action) will smooth out will prevent a trip to the shop. Any ideas on how to make the trigger pull lighter>?

    dry firing the pistol will smooth it out eventually
    or
    if you are handy and dont mind the thought that you may screw up your trigger group beyond repair or safe limits, a dremmel and a polishing wheel is always an option
    or some dinosaurs like myself have been know to judiciously use some lapping compound along with dry firing to speed up the "wearing in" process.... but then again, not recommended unless you can replace the trigger group if ya over do it.

    Using a dremel is pretty dangerous unless you are pretty steady and very very accurate. I would not trust my self with a dremel on any part but the feed ramp. Thats just me however.

    he asked for IDEAS , so i provided them.... my recommendation would be dry firing for the average gun owner
