So I'm an Idiot!
I Just purchased a Sig P229 Enhanced Elite. I'm the type who likes to tinker with things so I took off the grips then removed the hammer spring and strut. At this point I decided it was best not to mess with it. I put the hammer spring and strut back in place and the hammer will cock all the way back but when i use the decocker it on comes up half way. When I pull the trigger it cocks the hammer back but does release it. What did I do?!?!
I know I shouldn't have been messing with things but the inner tinkerer got the best of me for a minute.

I'm not sure but maybe look at YouTube and see if you can find a video on the assembling of your particular gun

Nevermind I figured it out!! I just placed the hammer strut in and tried different positions and pulled down and the hammer until I found the position that moved the hammer strut. Then placed the spring and plastic piece and and now everything works great! I'm never doing that again!!!
Thanks for the welcome guys.

Exacto, I agree! I'm sure I will eventually breakdown and tear it apart I always do! ;)
Tzadik, Thank you! I Joined that forum while trying to figure out what I was doing wrong but I have to wait for them to authenticate me before I can post. Still waiting. But I'm sure I will become a regular there. I love my Sig!!
