I just got and RVA for my PGP and it won't cock now since I installed it. It looks like the RVA is sticking too far in. Have anyone ever has thins problem? How can I fix this?

Its not the screw but the RVA itself. I put it in it appears to be sitting too far forward so the hammer cant catch the sear

does the bolt physically make contact with the rva? if not, then I might assume something else like its the spring being fully compressed, therefore not letting the bolt go farther back.

try it with no spring and see if it catches the sear. Where is the RVA from?

There isn't a lot of room there. I'd try this:
- Loosen up both grip frame screws. Push the frame towards the front of the gun then lock it down with the screw inside of the frame.
- Do kind of the same thing with the RVA. Pull it away from the body and tighten it down.

It doesn't seem like much but this can buy you about 1/16" which might be enough for the sear to catch.

If that doesn't work, I'd probably pull the sear and take a hair off the back.

Post a pic of the RVA so we can identify it.

I have fixed the PGP!! Turns out the spring was too short (sorry for arguing and saying it wasn't a spring problem) I put in a longer 12lb revolver spring and now it's working great!
