    SP101 Trigger help.

    I have a SP101. The gun was functioning prior to tinkering (imagine that) I took it apart to install a Wolf spring kit. I got it all put back together and it and the trigger would not pull back. I took it apart and followed the reinstallation steps as well as I could understand. It will cycle a few times then it wont then it will. I reinstalled everything without the pawl installed and it pulls fine. I am wondering if there is something simple to watch for or change. I am installing the trigger group with the transfer bar and the pawl straight up. When it does cycle its mighty smooth. I will be grateful for any help.

    My link-fu is not working but there's several videos on youtube that would help your problem.

    I did thank you I had misplaced the plunger and spring on the pawl. I got to looking in the area I was working and found the needle in a haystack. I tore the gun completely down and swapped out the springs and gave it a through cleaning. I installed the little plunger into place and it cycled perfectly. Well almost I found that the trigger return had to remain stock. It felt good but the reset just wasnt there with the lighter spring. Also I got the hammer springs mixed up and not sure which I went. I did clean up some of the metal so either way even if I went back with stock springs its smoother. Thank you
