Autotrigger problem

I just bought this gun, and to me it seems that the cam for the autotrigger is misaligned. When the cam is off, the gun works flawlessly, and is smooth as butter. However, when the autotrigger is set up, it seems that the lever is too far forward (rotated to the front of the gun) when the cam is flush against the trigger. When rotated more upright to where it is attached, I don't get the full action of the trigger, it isn't very smooth, and causes timing problems because the cam is not in a position that is very compatible with the trigger.





Here is how it should be attached, but i don't get the full action of the trigger, and it puts stress on all of the components, because the cam wants to rotate "forward".



Here is where the AT arm is when the cam is flush against the trigger, and i get the full action of the trigger.



For clarification, this is the newer style 45 frame and cam.

Any help would be greatly appreciated. I know my way around cocker pumps, but this issue has me stumped

what about the adjustment of the lug? you shouldn't need to get the trigger to go that far back to fire the gun.. the position of the lug also controls where the backblock is in relation to the cam letting the hammer go

Well the lug has to be deep enough to have the timing of the autotrigger function correctly (back block approximately 1/8th of an inch from the body). So I have the lug set to that correct depth.

I reassembled everything and it seems to be working so-so, but it a just not at an ideal smoothness and it's finnicky. Rather than the silky smooth, tight tolerance that I have come to know from CCM products.

I know EXACTLY your problem, it happened when i used my T2 after I cleaned my internals.

Try removing the bolt and inserting an Allen wrench into the hammer to loosen the hammer screw 1/4 turn at a time and test your auto trigger after each adjustment.

With the arm in the trigger frame it won't let the sear go completely down, which in most situations require the screw higher than normal. once the screw is brought higher your sear should be able to let go of the hammer.

EDIT: Also make sure the set screw below the trigger (between the trigger and grip) is screwed all the way outwards; adjust it to your liking once you get it working.

Let me know if this fixed your problem or not.

This is how the arm should look with it de-attached and the trigger pulled.

I agree with Matheu on this one. Give it a shot - and if not - call Rod.

Figured it out. It was the cocking rod. It was set about 3/8ths of an inch too far back, so for the autotrigger to function correctly, the lug had to be way too far down. I threw a spacer on the cocking rod, backed the lug out quite a bit, and now it works great.

Thanks for all of the input.
