Troubleshooting

(Sometimes things just don’t work right)

All manufacturers design their products to operate under a wide variety of conditions. However, they cannot test every possible situation. We have complied troubleshooting information for products of various manufacturers here. These are by no means complete and we always recommend that you contact the manufacturer should you have any questions about their product. 

Information on these guides has been compiled from original manufacturer documents when at all possible which include Owners and Armorer manuals.

In Filming the Sig Classic Series we point out the difference between the old and new style of trigger bar springs and that they install exactly the same. However, the question can the old and new style of Sig Classic Trigger Bar Springs be used interchangeably still remains.

Since time is limited in our videos we figured that we would answer that question here.

P320 manual safety assembly video thumbnail

P320 FCU Manual Safety Assembly Video

Our P320 Manual Safety FCU assembly video shows you how I assemble the manual safety FCU. Although there are some slight differences between the standard and the manual safety versions of the P320 FCU, most of the concepts are the same between the two. For instance, the safety lever pin on the standard FCU is replaced with the Left Side Manual Safety and is installed from the left side instead of the pin being installed from the right side. 

 

This video features the JSD Supply MUP-1 80% FCU that has been modified by AB Prototype for the Manual Safety. AB Prototype can also modify your existing P320 FCU for the Manual safety if you want. 

While you are on our site, don’t forget to check out our other P320 content.

Coronavirus - Quarantine Quarter Challenge post image

Coronavirus – Quarantine Quarter Challenge

 

From The Rogue Banshee bunker… I mean The Rogue Banshee Studio we bring you the CV Quarantine Quarter Challenge. The goal is to balance a quarter on the front sight of your pistol and dry fire (if the manufacturer says it is safe for your pistol to dry fire) 5 times while keeping the quarter on the front sight.

 

 

With social distancing protocols in place because of the Coronavirus, some gun ranges have decided to close. This leaves the shooting public with no place to practice their sport. Some of us use dry fire drills to fill the void during winter and I decided to share one that has been with me for 26 years. 

This exercise will show you if you are jerking the trigger of your pistol robbing you of accuracy. When completed, you need to tag 5 people and have them complete the challenge.

If you are new to shooting, drop us a line on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or our website and we will try to find someone for you.

Sig P365 FCU

Sig P365 FCU – Disassembly and reassembly

Our P365 FCU video will show you how I disassemble and reassemble the FCU. Although there are some slight differences between the standard and XL version of the pistol, the FCUs are essentially the same with the exception of the flat trigger on the XL.

 

 

Although the concept of the FCU is borrowed from the P320, this one is completely different in terms of disassembly and reassembly.
