TM 1911 Trigger Issue

Recommended Posts

This has me stumped - I have a TM MEU in a Guarder frame that I've been gradually upgrading. Installed a new trigger and all was good, installed an new hammer and it was sticking so dropped that out, popped in the original and all seemed okay but... 

 

Now when I pull the trigger, the pistol clicks but does not fire. If I release my grip, squeeze and pull the trigger then eventually it will fire but only once.

 

Any ideas? I have a feeling it may be something to do with the sear spring but out of ideas and don't want to strip it again until I know what the problem is.

Something appears to be misaligned .. take it apart and reassemble it 
I'm guessing the leaf spring jams somewhere

Good catch. I remember seeing this illustrated from browsing the Guarder website. Here is the image for reference:

Although I guess if the leaf spring is forcefully pushed in place I am not sure how leaving that left side edge on would affect the trigger action? :o

It could also be as mentioned above something jamming if installed slightly out of place. The airsoft 1911 leaf spring, hammer, sear and trigger bar configuration is finicky.

The safeties should just pop in nice and happily from memory? I usually had problems with them working themselves apart because they were just a push fit?

If they’re causing that much problem to put in it sounds like somethings in the wrong place?

For installation of safety the hammer should be cocked, right side ambi safety in first (if applicable), left-hand side safety lever inserted almost at the full most upward position. Grip safety slightly depressed. Wiggle in place during installation.
