I was out shooting my m9 the other day, and the trigger stopped returning. I stripped the gun, the trigger return spring, where usually I see the stick part I'd laying on the bottom frame, but was moving up and down with the trigger. I have to replace the breach, could that have something to do with it. Everything else work as normal though. I don't get it.

Sounds like you definitely have a worn out trigger return spring, it's common for them to break with wear, and a pretty easy fix. You can order them here: http://store.kwausa....turnspring.aspx I'd suggest you get 2 or 3 to prepare for future breaks. As for the breech, it doesn't come in contact with the spring so it shouldn't of had anything to do with it. :gun:

I second that, order some new trigger return springs from the pro shop, its a fairly common thing that has to be replaced with well-used M9s

I triple what everyone has said. If you need help installing the trigger return spring, you can refer to my tear down guide if you need it. It's in the M9 Series section of the forums.

You can get the Beretta M92/M96 trigger return spring at most gun shops.  I put one in my M9-PTP hoping it would increase the trigger weight to a more realistic level.  Didn't.  But I saw no need to take it out and it's still there.  Being designed for the real pistol it may be more robust.

If you can't find a YouTube video on how to change the spring just use one for the real Beretta M92 -- heck, Beretta probably has one on their website, there's one for the magazine catch..  KWA did a super job duplicating the M9/M92 and the procedure is identical -- as is the spring.
