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.

The Sig Sauer Classic Pistols are equipped with drift adjustable fixed Sights that consist of a rear sight and a front sight blade. Learn more about doing a sig classic sight adjustment here!

Sig classic

Most Sig Classic Recoil Springs are color coated so that they can be identified. However, what happens when you need to replace them and the color has worn off over the years? This Sig Classic Pistol Recoil Spring Color Guide will help you find the correct replacement.

I have compiled a list of the Smith and Wesson recommended procedures for troubleshooting the most common issues with the M&P9, M&P40, M&P357 and M&P45 pistols in the following tables.

Sig classic

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.

MGW Sight-Pro post image

MGW Sight Pro overview

 

I this video I walk you through the use of the MGW Sight-Pro universal pistol sight pusher. I have used one fo the “cheap” universal pushers for years but it started marking up slides. After doing a lot of research I bought this sight pusher. In this video, I talk about the MGW Sight-Pro and push a rear and front sight with it. Learn why I chose this as my go-to sight pusher. 

 

 
In this video, you will see both sight pushers that I talk about in the Sig Classic Sight Adjustment article. I bought my MGW Sight-Pro from Brownells. I like getting my tools from Brownells because of their Guaranteed. Forever.  When spending this type of money you want to know that it is going to last a long time and that the vendor that you bought it from is going to stand behind the product. In this case, forever. 
 
I have used this sight pusher to push sights on various pistols from Sig Sauer, Glock, 1911’s, and even the dreaded Springfiled XD Sights. This pusher has done them all for me without putting a mark on the slide. 
 
If you are in the market for a professional-grade universal sight pusher, watch the video and see why I say that the MGW Sight-pro is the one to buy!

P320 Manual Safety Conversion

P320 Manual Safety Conversion to a standard FCU

This P320 Manual Safety Conversion video shows you how I convert the manual safety FCU to a standard 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. In this video, I show what parts need to be swapped out to convert the manual safety FCU to a standard FCU

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.

If you would like to see how to assemble the P320 with a manual safety check out our P320 Manual Safety Assembly Video.

For the tools that we used on the Sig P320 videos visit http://trb.fyi/tools-used-in-the-p320-disassembly-and-reassembly-videos. If you would like to learn how to build an 80% P320 FCU check out our P320 80% Frame Completion. We also have content on how to disassemble and reassemble the P320 Slide.
