P64 question

I have a Polish Radom P64 in 9x18mm. I love the little bugger but it has developed a problem I don't understand. This seemed like to place to ask before spending any more money on the problem.

The trigger is inconsistently engaging the sear. Sometimes when I pull the trigger it fires, sometimes it won't fire until the third or fourth trigger pull, and sometimes I think I could pull the trigger all day and still get nothing. Whenever it does fire, it dependably feeds the next round and has never suffered a misfeed.

I have tried three different brands of factory brass ammo in both fmj and jhp with the same results, so I don't think it is an ammo issue. If the trigger spring were broken, damaged, or displaced I don't think it would still fire sometimes.

Any ideas?

Have you thoroughly cleaned the thing? I'd suspect some "gunk" is preventing travel/engagement. S/F....Ken M

I concur with E5M do a detailed strip. Did you check the firing pin? Sounds dumb but I always check the simple shit first. Good luck and keep us posted.

I field stripped it to the three basic components and cleaned it well but didn't take apart all the tiny bits. Might have to do that.

Reminds me of an old RG .22 short my Mom packed for years. It fired about every 3 trigger pulls. A problem inherent in that POS.
