Had an issue with the hammer bushing in my gen1 9mm multimag. Would like to see if anyone else had had the same issue. I pulled it all apart to install that, along with an asger trigger, fed ramp, and grip pins. When I put it all back together the trigger wouldn’t reset properly. Nothing audible, and it took two pulls before it would reset. Pulled it apart and reassembled 3 times before I realized it was the hammer bushing causing the problem.
On the stock one, it’s a metal pin with a plastic bushing fixed to it, with a long side of the pin out one side, and a short end on the other. The stainless one from mcarbo appears to be one piece, all steel, with the bushing machines into it.
When I compared the two, the bushing was in a different spot on the shaft. Basically there was more long side, and less short. This apparently caused the hammer to be under pressure from the grip halves, causing it to not move properly. Put it back together with the old bushing and everything works perfectly.
Anyone else have this issue? Anyone else use one of these in their gen1?
For the record, it was mid October when I found this out. I contacted mcarbo, they took a few days to get back to me, then sent a shipping label to return it so they can evaluate the bushing. They received it back a month ago, and I haven’t heard a word since. Not even a confirmation that they received it and are looking at it or anything even though tracking shows they got it. I’m expecting that this is a part, and money, that I just have to consider as flushed down the drain at this point. It does however answer my question about ordering more stuff for other guns from them, but that’s a different discussion.
