    How old is the gun, how many rounds, any work done on trigger, etc? Did you try it a second time to confirm? This is scary if in fact there was no manipulation of the trigger and the gun is stock.

    Yeah it obviously should. Be interesting to hear more details about this particular P30 as if it was bought new and if it had any any trigger or other work done on it and what lube is used.

    If any one wanted to test their gun they could try the pencil in the barrel and de cock to see what happens.

    No problem with my P30L as each range trip I usually fire at least a magazine DA only meaning I decock 15 times while round in chamber.

    I've done this test (with a live round pointing at the range target), to both P30SKS/P30S safety-off = no bang. Ejected round = no primer mark/strike.

    You can see the decocker rise/disengage-FPB as you pull the trigger, the decocker cannot do this (you can only push it) without a trigger pull.
    As alluded, need more info.

    One possibility is that the OPs gun has been failing to fall to the hammer intercept position for some time, and decocking has instead been made against the FPBS. After doing that awhile, the FPBS would get peened from the firing pin impacts to the point that it would stick in the up position despite the tiny PFBS spring.

    That would be one way a single point failure (hammer intercept) could eventually lead to a full failure of the whole decocking system.



    OP, I don't suppose you've noticed whether your P30 always decocked to hammer intercept or not?

    You can dry-test the FPBS by lowering the hammer ala revolver.
    Pulling/holding the trigger and lowering the hammer, you’ll see/feel it rest on the FP = bang. Release the trigger > pull the hammer some until you hear a click, this is the safety notch (FPBS engaging). Then as you release the hammer it will rest on the safety-notch/FPBS, you can see the gap between the hammer and FP = no bang.
