here is the bottom of the striker where there is funny wear! i did not sand anything that contacts this area if that is what you mean, i only sanded the side of the sear so the ejector would fit back in, and also over travel stop. nothing else has ben sanded.

but these marks have ben happening even before i installed the trigger

Photo was a little blurry but I don't think this would be the problem. You said that you didn't touch the areas where the striker and the sear engage each other, this wear seems normal, my tac has had this wear for a long time. I would move along the line of checking out the striker channel and cleaning it up.

thanks man... ok i cleaned the striker channel(which i dunno why i should have to after 200 rounds) but i did anyway. I also took a little bit off the over travel stop and it feels more solid of a click when i dry fire it..

sorry for the bad pic...

Well, how does she shoot? Have you had a chance to try it out with the striker cleaned out?

Another thing I've discovered after doing this job on my Anchorage XD40sc is that the plastic and metal parts of the pistol contact at different rates when it gets cold outside. I found that the overtravel stop adjustment was fine at room temperature but the sear would not release at all after about 30 minutes at 10 deg F.

I ended up leaving the gun out on the deck for an hour and then sanding the overtravel stop enough to get the sear to release the striker. There is now much more travel at room temperature than I'd like, but it works at any temperature.

Try this yourself by putting your pistol in the freezer for an hour or so, empty but cocked. Pick it up and, after verifying that it's unloaded, pull the trigger. If it releases-great, but if not, you'll need to do some more sanding and re-freezing until it's reliable.

If it doesn't freeze where you live, I'd still recommend checking it using the fridge. That would ensure it would work down to about 35 deg F at least.
