G42 Reassembly

679 Views 6 Replies 6 Participants Last post by  Mike-M
Just picked up me new 42 and put 200 rounds through. I did a complete teardown and cleaned her up. I have a couple of questions on the reassembly. 1)the plastic piece that resides inside the trigger spring has a slanted side and a flat side. Mine has the flat side up. Is that correct. 2) are the slide lock spring and the firing pin safety spring the exact same spring or do I need to keep track of which one goes where. 3)Does the slide lock notch face the rear like it's big brothers.
I always appreciate the help.

This one came with the flat side up. I picked it up today and walked into the range. First 4 of 10 failed to feed. Then if I released the trigger slowly to reset,when I pulled it was gritty and just clicked. You have to release it all the way. I went straight home and as soon as I took off the slide, I could tell the trigger group did not look right. I cleaned everything and put the bar in curved side up, but the damage was done. If I hold the trigger in and rack the slide it feels crunchy. Any body else have this happen?
