    Glad to hear that you got it sorted. #71 is the Loading nozzle spring

    Western Arms cocking issues

    Why hello I can only snatch a bit of time to reply so apologies if this all seems rushed and badly composed. Okay, I cannot get any pictures shown above to work so we are going to have to do this the slow way. Photos of the components out would really really help and eliminate any parts breakage causing the issue. For the sake of clarity: Sear#24, Lower disconnector #25, Sear spring aka Leaf spring #72 Assuming that there is no damage to the sear nose or hammer hooks - as Wooly suggested above, I would try increasing tension forwards on the 2 left hand (as if the gun was pointing away from you) leaf spring prongs. The middle one is the main suspect - the critical lower disconnector and sear prong, the left one is for trigger return but we need to eliminate as much as possible. To help you see what is happening, reassemble the gun minus the grip safety. This will allow you to see the trigger mech as you cock and rack it. If this does not help then make sure that the lower disconnector is not getting caught on the bottom of the sear thus not rising as the action is cycled or other issues, but let's try the basics first as that is more a trigger reset issue than your "hammer not cocking".

    No problem. I am glad that you figured it out and got it working

    Ah, you posted a reply as I was composing my reply! Sounds like you sorted it but maybe use some good quality lubricant on the slide to help it break in.

    Yes, pretty much. The Detonator one felt more slick immediately, but there was nothing wrong with the Nova one at all. With the Nova slide you will need to replace the TM plastic recoil spring guide rod end/barrel guide (GBB1-20) with the correctly orientated Nova aluminium piece supplied.

    Detonator have just released an extended threaded barrel, but I have not seen any raised sights for sale separately. Yet.

    Thank you. The Nova outer doesn't have the slot for an O ring. It looks like the Nova one was based more on the earlier USP SD 9mm barrel (which didn't have the O ring) that preceded the USP 9mm Tactical or an aftermarket threaded HK type barrel.

    I hope that this will suffice as I had to edit the photos with my finger on a mobile device! There's 3 steps which I have highlighted in white. They show the approximate position of the modified areas. 1. The large paddle at the rear of the extractor needs to be almost completely removed. I have shown this as the areas in white. Note that I left two spigots, the exact position will be the same as the notches inside the Detonator slide. Best to use the Detonator extractor as a template. 2. Almost at the same time as removing the bulk of the paddle, a slight taper should be put on the rear underside of the extractor. This will allow it to pivot into place (as per the Detonator extractor). 3. Reduce the two front support wings so that the extractor can push deep enough into the slide. This is quite easy as they just need to be brought down to level (there is a handy line on the casting to use as reference). This is how I did it and it locks in place solidly with absolutely no movement with the blowback unit in place. Best of luck.

    Not the best photos but it will give you some idea. USP Tactical has the Nova slide. Standard USP has the Detonator slide. The Detonator slide has a slightly more grey appearance than the Nova. The finish on the Detonator is more smooth than the matt finish of the Nova (it's not rough per se, just the Detonator finish is so smooth). The white lettering is etched deeper on the Detonator. Both slides went together easily but Detonator's moving extractor requires fitting a replacement nozzle spring guide/stop which simply does not seem to stay securely in place allowing unwanted movement of the spring. To allow the use of the standard TM nozzle spring guide/stop, I modified the standard TM extractor to fit, then refinished it before installation. It would be possible to cut a piece off of the TM extractor to allow the use of the Detonator extractor but I am happy with the TM part. For the moment, anyway The Nova comes with it's own aluminium sights. I did order some steel Detonator sights to go with the Detonator slide but as they went wayward in the post I fitted the standard TM sights as I could not wait. I did not try swapping the sights between brands of slide but it would be logical to think that they would be the same. The Tactical barrel allowed for a longer inner barrel to be fitted. I used a 112.5mm barrel. The USP has got quite a kick. Shooting side by side with an HK45 (both guns fitted with Detonator slides), it feels a bit heavier to me. I should add that there is no real difference in kick with either the Detonator or Nova slide on the USP. Shame about the TM markings on the frame, but they do not seem as intrusive as the one's on the USP Compact. To date, I have used the Detonator fitted USP in a skirmish and it performed admirably. If you have any questions fire away!

    Ah, most interesting. I had my eye on a similar two tone kit under the PGC banner on RW simply for the slide (as it was for the pre E2 guns). Having just checked, the kit I was watching is now sold out and this Pro-Win branded (same folks of course) new kit is in, and as you say a weird combo Elite slide and no beavertail? I suppose anything is possible in a custom gun Curious that it is built for the pre E2 series 226R when I was under the impression they were currently just doing kits for the E2 types. Mind you it shouldn't take *too* much effort to adjust it/part swap to suit. Thank you again for the find Squad, it's being considered

    I see where you are going..... In theory it can be done, but alas the gun currently resides with a friend who is buying it. I guess he was a bigger Resident Evil fan after all Which puts me back where I started for a two tone SIG!

    Thank you chaps One more..... "SIG Sauer P226 Sentinel Nine" Tokyo Marui Sentinel Nine (developed in conjunction with Capcom for the Biohazard/Resident Evil series of games). Sadly it never made it into Resident Evil 6, perhaps they will add it as DLC http://www.tokyo-marui.co.jp/bio/special/sentinelnine/ Tokyo Marui base gun Shooters Design metal kit Guarder Nozzle and valve blocker. Nine Ball XDM 6.03mm inner barrel. 'Stand off' flash hider not fitted and standard magazine in lieu of the extended one. Having built it, I felt the slide was a touch too matt, so I gave the sides a brushed finish. I have always liked the two tone SIG 226: black frame with silver slide and controls. Although I originally planned to blast a black slide back to silver on a Pro-Win kit, Shooters Design came out with this kit for the E2 based Sentinel Nine just in time. I have a soft spot for all things Resident Evil so it seemed worth it. Was the kit worth more than double the price of the Pro-Win? Not really, although it did have some nice touches to aid assembly.
