I was wondering if the trigger bar was difficult to remove? I have polished the striker and internals to get smoother trigger pull and that is the only part left to polish. If there are instructions please do tell.
Very easy to remove. A bit tricky to get back in.

Remove side cover (Torx T5)

Remove trigger axis pin
  • Torsion spring is under pressure, but not much.
  • Note position/orientation of spring ends. Curved (slight hook) end rides inside the trigger.

Remove trigger spring, spring spacer, and trigger
  • Trigger bar is attached to trigger.
  • Note placement of trigger bar spring and how lower side fits inside frame slot.

Polish away on the trigger bar
  • I rounded the bottom in the area the spring slides.
  • Also polish contacting surfaces, except the sear.
  • Also the spring spacer face that touches the inside of trigger.

Reassemble
The tricky part is getting the trigger spring assembly back in place
  • Start the trigger pin.
  • Align trigger into place and tap the pin in just far enough to catch hand hold.
  • Attach trigger bar and tape in place around the back of gun.
  • I used small duck bill pliers with no serrations to hold the spring and spacer together to guide into position.
  • Use a flat blade screwdriver as a lever inside the trigger housing while holding the assembly, all with one hand. You need to be able to work the 'lever' as well, to align.
  • The other hand is used to tap the pin into place while working the 'lever' to align the assembly.
  • Cuss and repeat several times until the frame pin finally finds its way through.
  • Remove the tape and attach the trigger bar spring.

It's Miller Time!!

It's a wonderful knack isn't it? Just let you hair down and lay it back.

We do get carried away don't we, Sorry.

I would like to someday take mine apart polish everything but I must say I have no complaints with what I have. I can't imagine them being any smoother than they are now.

You thought about fitting a new barrel yourself.
I've read up on it, even watched some YouTube.
I have but the cost...I already dumped about $250 into his $400 dollar pistol... How much does that run?
