During test firing of a vz58 build on a ORF receiver and compliance parts, it was discovered that the striker was hanging up on the sear. The problem was easlily solved by milling a few thousands from the bottom of the striker.

I was just curious if anyone else has encountered this problem? May be something to watch out for.

thx

I had that problem as well. I just took a file to it and filed down the edge a bit, which seemed to work out great.

I also had to do some filing to several other parts to get everything to work smoothly.

"it was discovered that the striker was hanging up on the sear"

Sure it was doing that? For grins - look at the front/side of the striker where the little "notch" is for rotating it into the carrier. Now look at the end of the grove just below it - do you see a peen? As though the striker end has been slamming against the divot in the carrier that is designed to keep it in the carrier?

I ask, because I experienced this with a commercial build - a very creepy FTF that happened about every 10 rounds, yet the trigger group felt fine. It always took about three racks to get the striker unstuck, and was fixed with a GENTLE sanding of the carrier Divot with a Dremmel & a fine sandpaper drum.
