P239: I Screwed It Up

First off I'm beyond mad at myself.

Picked up a brand new SIG P239 today. I live in NH and not far from the SIG academy so I figured I would stop by, pick up a SRT trigger kit, and do it myself. I've done complete disassemblies on P220s and P226s so I figured no biggie.

I figure I got the SRT kit installed correctly. Get the pistol re-assembled though and something is obviously wrong. There is a secondary click before the sear is being released. In addition, if in SA if I apply rearward pressure and pull up to the break point the sear releases automatically, without me having to go passed the break point.

I disassembled and reassembled a number of times, no dice. So I figure I'll go back to the stock trigger kit. Get it reassembled and the sear release is okay. However, while the DA pull feels correct the SA pull is way too heavy. On a Lyman electronic pull gauge it is reading 7 lbs and just by feel I know it is too heavy. Edit: Nevermind, the seconday click is still there if I pull the trigger slowly.

Any idea what the heck I did and what I can do to fix it? Or is it time to put my huevos in a box and visit the local smith?

Ahoy Tunnel-Rat,

I have a Sig 239 Tactical SRT and it is an incredible shooter.

Have needed advice on occasion for my S&Ws and SAs and the 1-800 lines to S&W and Springfield Armory have cleared up my queries/needs over the phone.

Since your 239 is brand new I would call Sig and let them advise you. I wouldn't give it to an independent smith, that could turn out badly.

I would let Sig handle the problem, the 239 is a great gun.

In re-installing the factory parts it does seem to be okay. I've read that some of the SRT parts aren't quite perfect and may require a bit of fitting. Since I bought it at the Pro Shop I'm just going to bring it there. Thanks for the comments though.

Oh man...I had an issue when I performed a dissemblance of my P220.

After doing so with my P226 a few times without an issue. I did it with my P220, and messed up where the trigger bar spring went and messed it up. Couldn't figure it out until "rinspeed" saw it for me and pointed it out. Thank God I post a lot of pics.

lol..so don't worry brother. It happens.

I'd probably take it over to SIG since you're so close.

Guess what I'm close to? Come on, come on! Miami, FL.....

You're pretty close to SOUTHCOM and SOCSOUTH.

I've done a lot of sig detail stripping and reassembly...

I'm wondering if the click you're hearing is maybe something related to either the the trigger return spring not installed quite properly, or maybe a nick/burr on the trigger bar itself.

This is pure speculation though. I haven't actually experienced this issue.
