    Since there seems to be some people here with a wealth of knowledge on Perazzis and their triggers, I thought I would ask a question that I never really could get an answer for at Shotgun World.

    Sometimes, my MX3 Special with a P4, non selectable trigger hesitates when changing over from the lower barrel to the upper barrel when taking the second shot of a pair. It doesn't matter whether I am shooting 12 gauge or .410 -- it is still the same, so it's not an issue where the inertia block needs to be adjusted for recoil sensitivity. I take the first shot with the lower barrel, then I can hear, only a tiny fraction of a second later, a click, as the selector changes from lower to upper, as it drops from the sear at the inertia block. Only a couple of times, has it taken long enough for me not to be able to make the second shot of a pair, but it does eventually drop off of the sear without me having to whack the butt on a wall. What I usually have to do to make it work properly for a few hundred rounds is, drop the trigger and blow out the area near the inertia block. Although I can't see any dust or oil, something must be getting in there, because blowing it out always does the trick for a little while. This is a relatively new problem and it has me baffled.

    I just put a very tiny amount Gun Butter oil on the sear which seems to have made the selector slide off of the sear quite a bit more easily, but I am afraid that now I have oil on the sear, it will accumulate dirt easier and compound my problem. I will find out this week when I shoot.

    Does anybody know what might be going on here? Is this a problem anybody has heard of before? If so, what do I need to do? Is oil on the inertia block sear a bad idea?

    Thanks,

    Bruce

    Assuming all of the trigger springs are good.. Your tree needs a little fine stoning.. It's developed a burr or two.. OR you need a new tree

    Could be the inertia block returning to battery is rubbing on the inside, side of the wood. Look for some wood/metal contact. I've seen this happen oftern and particularly when it is humid and the wood espands a bit.

    A little bit of Red Lipstick on the inertia block will make rubbing easier to spot..

    Yea, I had that problem with the red lipstick once too, after my wife found it in the glovebox of the 4x4.

    Told her I didn't like the color so I refused to wear it. ;-0
