I now have two P250s. One of them suddenly starting having problems with light primer strikes that got worse to the point that every 2 or 3 rounds would be a misfire until I pulled the trigger again. Sometimes it would take 2 additional hits. After comparing that 250 with the one that didn't have a problem, I finally figured out exactly what was happening: The hammer was falling off the trigger bar way too soon. It was only going back half the distance it was supposed to. If I pulled back **ever** so slightly on the slide, then the hammer went the full distance. Bottom line: the trigger bar was not getting a good purchase on the hammer and would slip off prematurely causing a light primer strike. By moving the hammer slightly more to the rear, the trigger bar could get a firm purchase and would move the hammer the full distance before releasing it, giving a good primer strike. A couple of days ago my other P250 started doing the same thing. Both are back for repair. This sounds like perhaps some defective parts. Hopefully not a defective design. When I get the guns back, I am really going to put them through their paces.
