Default CS40 trigger question

I recently acquired a Smith and Wesson CS40 and had a question about the trigger. In double action it is a smooth pull although a little on the heavy side. In single action there is a very noticeable click about half way through the pull. It almost resembles a reset click but more distinctive. Is this normal for this firearm or is it something I should check out? I have quite a few Smiths in my collection and none of them have this issue. Also is there any way to correct it via polishing or changing out a part even though parts are very hard to come by. Thanks in advance, Brandon

Search the forum for "trigger play spring" - it's a fairly common issue.

I did just that and after finding a video on also tearing down these gen 3 firearms to the frame I tore mine down and gave it a good cleaning and polished up a few different parts. Lubed everything up with CLP and then reassembled it. Then adjusted the trigger play spring. All clicking is now gone. Now I can say this is an awesome little shooter. I will be ordering a set of KSD grips for it and getting a custom kydex IWB holster for it from Darwin Defense.

Sorry almost forgot to post pics of my new baby. Also took a pic while taking it down to the frame. I got it with the original box, manual, lock still in the plastic, and both magazines. Serial number: EKY8036. I think looking at the label on the side of the case its a 2000 model.

Welcome to the forum!

I love my CS40/45. It was my first S&W Semi-auto.

There's a lot you can do with them.

Good for you for fixing your own pistol.

The claw hammer is a nice touch.

John
