Default Update on the 457 zander and question about 5943

So I received the 457 zander last week. Seller proclaimed it was bnib which it was clearly not. So since it had at least a couple mags fired previous to me buying it I decided to take it to the range. I put a box of 50 through it and boy that double action is sweet!!.. but, i noticed in single action right as you start to take up the slack in the trigger there is a very audible click in the trigger and you can feel it as well. So i pulled the slide off and it seems like as the trigger group moves up its rubbing on the frame. It's incredibly annoying because it feels like a flat spot. My question is do you think it would be an easy fix?..

Also i ordered a 5943 dao the other day . And i wanted to find out everyone's thoughts on the trigger and I've heard they are getting harder to come by?.. if anyone had shot both a 457 and 5943 how do the double action triggers compare?Update on the 457 zander and question about 5943-20200204_203728-jpg

It may be the trigger return spring. Many times you can bend it and at the worst replace it. The spring and rivet cost pennies but is a pain to replace. Very common in 3rd gen guns.

The 5943's DAO trigger should feel slightly better than the 457's TDA double action trigger pull.

.

I think mitchjt meant to say trigger play spring & rivet.

Seems to be more common on the large frame 3rd Gens.

It's annoying but you can safely shoot the pistol with it broken.

California Highway Patrol used to order their new 3rd Gens from S&W without the spring installed.

.

Check to see if yours is broken.

Here's where to look. (Click for larger view)
