PPK with problems

my PPk misfires acasionaly. I have to recock the hammer or pull the trigger in double action to shoot. This stainles steel pistol is in her 100%´s

Any advise? what to check?

In the other hand, the pistol have a very soft trigger pull, nothing like the common factory heavy trigger pulls of this pistols. I think that pistol have an aftermarket hammer spring, but is too ligth.

How can I confirm this?

Can anybody can describe me the original spring, (legth, color, weigth etc)

Can anibody can describe me the Trapper or Wolff springs,


Thanks

Sounds like you have diagnosed the problem. The factory main (hammer) spring creates the heavy pull the PPK is famous for. Lighter springs can produce a much nicer trigger, but too light and you have missfires. I don't think you can visually examine the spring and tell much without a new factory spring to compare to it.

Wolff makes a spring kit that contains an assortment of lighter weight springs that allow you to find the right balance between trigger action and reliability. That kit plus a Wolff factory weight spring should put you in business.
