failure

Postby Cornhusker_Joe » Wed Oct 14, 2015 12:03 pm

I have been very happy with my HP22 and it performs very well. I did have a cracked slide that they were very good about replacing for me. That is all history - I just had a trigger disconnect failure. On the 24th round, the trigger wouldn't reset. Quite disconcerting if one was depending on the firearm in a "situation". It turned out to be an easy fix - the trigger disconnect bar had fallen off of the pin as the pin had moved inward into the frame. It pushed back out easily, so I added a drop of locktite. So far, so good. 50 rounds without issue. It will require another 150 or so before it will be returned to "service". Still love this little piece.

I had a trigger reset failure on my early HP-22. It was definitely unsettling when it happened and I did pull the gun out of "service" until it got fixed. Turned out they'd added a spring to the newer models to resolve the problem. I got the spring and *presto* it was fixed.

That's interesting stuff. Do you have a picture of the two variants for comparison?

Didn't take any pics. I'll see what I can come up with though.

EDIT: See next post. :D

Okay, here are pics comparing the old and new style triggers.
The new style trigger not only incorporates a slot for a trigger return spring, but it also has finger grooves in it.
It was a very simple install and the trigger return is significantly better.

Thanks for the heads-up. Never knew there was a Mark II version. What year did they make the change?

I don't know when they made the change. Phoenix isn't very forthcoming about stuff :(
But I can tell you all the pins used to hold the internals in the frame on my older HP22 are solid steel, where they're roll pins on the newer pistols.
