Now, onto the tuna...
I have an issue Ive seen a few times in the ATP forums but nothing with a solid fix aside from sending it in. This would be fine but I have an op the first weekend of December and considering Im familiar with this gun, I would like to try to fix before the op.
Here are my symptoms:
-Fires every other shot only after having to re cock in between regardeless of dry or live firing
-When the working shot is made, it either starts to expel gas or something doesnt cycle completely though the slide slams all the way back when live firing (and the trigger/hammer assy doesnt lock/not ready to fire)
-When it doesnt make a complete internal cycle, the trigger/hammer assy appears to not have locked back when firing dry or live
Steps taken to resolve:
-Completely disassemble the slide, clean and re lube with provided lube then reassemble
-Completely disassemble the lower, clean and re lube with provided lube then reassemble
As stated, Ive read threw a few posts and have noticed that some ask about the serial due to a similar issue in the early models. Mine may or may not be apart of this bach. I have a plastic recoil/guide rod and no trigger safety.
The model number: P110702147 US
Other notes and a few things Ive noticed:
-The FPS has not been affected
-The bucking has been changed but I have tried to avoid letting any silicon oil touch it
-When the lower was disassembled, the window in part 24 (ATP Hammer black) seemed a little rough where part 18 (Mag valve striker?) meets the window, still somewhat functional... not sure if thats normal
-When dry firing, it will lock back on its own but when releasing the slide, it be in the nonfunctional cycle and the trigger/hammer assy is at that point not locked back, not ready to fire
-I have 3 mags and the issue happens despite which mag I use
Hopefully that wasnt too overwhelming with info. Any and all help is MUCH appreciated! Due to the time frame Im in, sending it in is not an option at this moment. I need to at least carry a sidearm for this upcoming op.
Ill provide any other info needed/wanted; try any good suggestions that doesnt require destroying the gun, doing odd things with it or putting in weird places... weirdo...
Anyways, thanks again guys and bumblebeetuna!!! =D
tl;dr Pistol broked, please halp!!!
