Backstory - I have two P365's. One is a standard model that has had a stupidly smooth trigger from the day I picked it up at the LGS and said "I'll take it!" after testing the trigger. I added a manual safety. I've swapped grip modules. Otherwise I've never done more than field strip and clean this P365 after range visits or if enough time had passed.
The other is an XL that i picked up at a big box store that didn't allow dry fire. The trigger pull on my XL was pretty rough. Not heavy. Just not smooth. I tried various things. I took the FCU apart and cleaned its parts. I coated some of them in dry lube. I cleaned my striker channel and striker. I tried the seer spring and striker safety spring from the Mcarbo kit. It helped a little bit, I noticed the biggest difference when I hit the seer and striker with some Otis dry lube. I also installed an Mcarbo short stroke trigger, which I was surprised to find out how much I noticed the overtravel with my XL before the Mcarbo trigger. More about that later.
One day, applying the dry lube I finally noticed it. My standard model's striker is unfinished. The seer is painted, but mostly worn away where the striker contacted it. The striker is smooth, shiny bare metal though.
This is what was in my XL. That painted finish when I run a fingernail over it is quite grabby, and not very slippery. Mind you, I've probably dry fired my XL a couple thousand times if not more at this point, it's also my primary range gun from here on out so I can practice with a familiar platform without cycling SD ammo through my standard model every other week.
Here's my XL with the new striker I ordered. I might ahve asked sig to replace it, but I've modified my XL and really didn't want to send it in even if I hadn't. So I I ordered this from the sig store. Note, the striker block isn't black.
First thing of note, I had to back out my overtravel adjustment screw to release the new striker. This means that the old painted striker has a slightly smaller striker block. This also means that the old painted striker had more overtravel in general than the new striker.. I.e. the seer now has to drop further to release the striker.
The trigger pull of my XL is now smooth as a hot knife through butter, slightly lighter than my standard model due to the mcarbo springs, and it would have less overtravel with the stock trigger shoe than the previous striker allowed for.
Now I find myself curious how many of you have finished strikers as well as what your trigger pull feels like when you try to use the least amount of pressure required to get it moving. Or perhaps it was the size discrepancy rather than the paint?
