I'm having two issues with my M17:

1. Currently my gun is giving me single shots, but after a while it starts shooting in three round bursts only. This is a problem for the same lower but two different slides.
2. Sometimes the trigger does not always engage the sear (part 87 I believe); I however just replaced this part, so I'm not sure why it's still not catching.

Any suggestions on what's causing the problem?

The hammer sears were the first thing that came to mind but then when you said you replaced it recently, I'm stumped...

Have you oiled the gun recently?
Put a few drops of silicone oil on the hammer assembly and rack the slide a few times.

Currently doing a full disassembly - see if I can find any kinks.

Might be some burrs on the new parts that you can't really see.  Drop some silicone oil in the firing mechanism and that should allow the parts to operate smoothly until they break in on their own given that it was assembled correctly with the right parts. lol

Did a regrease, replaced the trigger bar - seems like it solved the problem for now. Noticed among my parts that there seem to be two types of trigger bars - the one i had originally was slanted below the nub that contacts the hammer sear, while the one that's installed now doesn't. The current trigger bar works, but the trigger doesn't return to battery as easily anymore as it used to.

Any ideas for a fix?

That kind of happened after I reassembled my lower assembly on my ATP but all I had to do is just re-oil and fire off a few rounds.

But do you have pics to show us? That will definitely help.
