    Question There is a very crisp detent/click during the DA pull. Strange?

    On this latest Bulgy this is felt/barely heard after more than halfway through the DA pull. Every time. The previous owner told me that he stripped and cleaned it.
    The only disassembling I've ever done is the slide, spring and maybe a firing pin on my Maks.

    Even my .380 Russian and the other Bulgy have a heavier pull during the last part.
    Nothing at all similar is noticed in these other two, or in either of my EGs.

    Is it consistent in the same spot? If so there may be a burr.

    With the simple trigger train of the Mak it shouldn't be too hard to locate if you're willing to take it apart. You have the trigger itself, the trigger bar, the disconnecter on the end of the bar, the sear, the hammer itself and finally the flat trigger and hammer spring which could easily have a "pop"in it.

    The heavier second or third stage is due to the disconnector striking the projection on the sear. This is when the disconnector starts slipping off the double action tooth on the hammer.

    The click might be due to a burr on either the hammer, sear or disconnector.

    Thanks. What's good is that the required finger pressure this point in the pull is lighter than in my other Bulgy and .380 Russian.

    This lighter feel caused me to think that the gun has a good bit more wear.
