    Default VP9 Reset Issue: Trigger overextends past break

    First off, this is my very first firearm so I am not well versed in the lingo or parts breakdown but I will do my best. I just purchased a VP9 and am the first owner of the firearm. I took the gun to the range and found that it had a random yet constant reset failure. I took the gun home and disassembled it and at first glance didn't see anything wrong. I reassembled and tried to preform the function test and when I pulled the trigger I felt the break point, but was able to pull the trigger another 1-2mm further back where it became locked down and I couldn't move the slide. I had to manually push the trigger forward to reset... not sure if this is normal but I would assume it is not.

    I then removed the slide again and looked into the gun at the reset spring to make sure it was on correctly. I referenced some pics from another thread on this forum and to my knowledge it looks fine. I then followed the trigger bar to where it makes contact with the sear. When it reaches the normal break, it looks like it lines up with the trigger bar nicely... then with minimal force to the trigger the trigger bar will overextend and lay on top of the sear where it clicks into place and locks until I manually push the trigger forward. This I would assume is not normal but I don't know. I am thinking that during firing, I am either squeezing the trigger too hard to where this jam occurs or the normal momentum of the reset mechanism after firing is causing the same jam to occur, which locks the slide and won't allow the next bullet to enter the chamber.

    Here is an image where I show (LEFT)the trigger bar and sear in a neutral position, (MIDDLE) the trigger bar against the sear at the break, (RIGHT) the trigger bar overlapping the sear when overextending the trigger.

    Wondering if anyone in customer service can assist and offer some insight. Thank you in advance.

    My guess is your trigger bolt stop pin is missing from the grip

    The stop bolt was the issue. My pin was sticking out of the grip. Called and spoke to Dan and he said to push it back in with a hammer and pin. I just applied pressure with the head of the hammer without actually tapping it. It slid right in flush with the body of the gun now. I’m unsure if the bolt should be pushed in further than that but it completely solved the jamming issue so far. I’ll live fire it at the range later today to test it and see if the pin starts moving outward again and let you guys know. Thank you for all your help! As a first time gun owner, I really appreciate it.

    Dan is the man. Great gunsmith and very knowledgeable.
    The VP9 is an amazing choice for a first handgun.
    Don’t sell it. You did well.
