^^It might be best to make a separate post about your question. Just a thought.
I completely understand, and sorry to get things off track. Thanks for your time.

Hope you don't mind the off topic question. does this model have a narrow grip, I have small girly hands. Compared to a gen 4 Glock 19 small strap, how do these po7 compare.. Thanks for the help...

To quickly answer your question the P07 with small backstrap feels noticeably smaller than the Gen4 Glock 19 with no backstrap.

On one of Schmecky's polishing threads,  he shows in detail the easiest way to polish hard to reach places  using a Dremel tool.
There is a 1/8" Dremel "stem/shaft"for sanding and polishing that  has a tiny screw in the end to hold the tools it uses.
THAT shaft with the screw removed,  and a thin strip of  sandpaper wrapped over the end and down the sides uses a small O-ring used as a rubber band over the strip of paper to hold it in place.  He also shows all the locations to polish.
A number of members here have used his method

That's a goo contrasting picture of the bar after polishing. Pictures are a great help thanks for this one.

Here's a brand new trigger bar.  Look at the rear and you can already see a high spot visible by the wear on the finish.  When parts are stamped out of sheet metal (as is the P series trigger bar), the stamping die causes the steel to form sharp edges on the outside of the trigger bar.  In essence, the bar is not flat, it is more concave or bowl shaped.  We want the trigger bar flat and smooth.



So you can see just how "unflat" the trigger bar is, here is a pic of stoning the bar lightly.  You can see the where the edges are higher creating drag and a rough DA.

Here's a nice flat, properly prepped trigger bar.

I got all of the parts installed in my P-07(Basically the Pro Grade Kit, but with the Defensive Hammer Springs), but haven't gotten to shoot it much lately (Dan Wesson 44 Mag revolvers are WAYYY too much fun at 100 yds!).   I extended the safety, but it still doesn't work well for me for cocked and locked carry, so I recently converted it back to decocker.  I have been noticing that the DA pull is a little lighter and smoother, but still has some "hitches" in the DA pull where it doesn't feel like a Sig or good DA revolver would feel; it's not consistent along its pull.  I did the smaller of the 2 rollers, so I am not sure if I should go for the larger roller or work more on polishing the trigger bar or if it's something else?  I polished the trigger bar so it was smooth and polished on the edges where it was making contact with other parts, but it's not perfectly flat to make contact with the inside of the frame 100%.  Where else should I look that may be causing the inconsistent feeling?

I dropped my hammer spring from the 18# to the 15# and noticed all of those hitches went away for me.  You might give that a try...

I've had no adverse issues with any of the ammo I usually shoot - Winchester NATO, Speer Lawman, Freedom Munitions 147gr, and Ranger 147gr.

I have the yellow hammer spring in currently and I polished up the hammer strut, too.  The gun shoots everything, but the dimples are much shallower than my other firearms, so I am leery of going lower on the spring weight.

Is there a reason that the outer bearing surfaces are polished, but no talk about the inner bearing surfaces?
