Light hammer strikes with new firing pin safety 3 click Uberti SAA?


Virginia Gentleman:
Have any of you had this problem (light hammer/firing pin strikes and no ignition in the ammo)  with the new 3 click floating firing pin safety newer model Ubertis?  Is there a solution that does not involve replacing the hammer with a traditional one?

In the past year or so I have had a half dozen customers come in with the same issue on the new Uberti SAA with the new safety hammer. While the system could possibly be modified, it is much easier to replace it with old style parts. I have been able to obtain new old style hammers and triggers from Taylors for less than $100. -------- GeezerD

 :)  Well heck,

We all know I retired just before that stupid Uberti “Safety” thingie was fostered upon us.  I have however taken a few jobs just to keep “my hand in.”

Regardless of my opinion of that Stupid Firing Pin, I’m with GeezerD.  Frankly, piddling around with odd solutions is just silly.  Change out the hammer/trigger and be done with it.

I believe I may have mentioned in passing, I don’t like Uberti hand guns and the retracting firing pin is one more real good reason to not like Uberti.

Stay well Geezer!!!!

Coffinmaker - I have been retired for a little over 10 years now. But working on guns is one of the only things that is still enjoyable to me.

In a couple of weeks, I'm getting a pacemaker/defib implant to add to the list of things that are not enjoyable. If I had known that I was going to live this long, I would have taken better care of myself. --------------------- GeezerD
