I posted the following in the the other small 22/25 thread, but decided to start a new thread to see if any Bauer/Browning Baby experts had any thoughts on my issue. I recently bought a Bauer 25... When function testing it at home, I noticed that it took a really hard pull on the slide to get the striker fully cocked...didn't think much about it, figured the ejection cycle could handle it. Went to the range last week. The little Bauer seemed like it wanted to work. But I had several jams where the striker didn't catch the sear, which means the firing pin (which also performs the ejector function) was protruding from the breach, blocking the fresh cartridge from rising. This was while using Winchester and PRVI FMJ. I have done a little polish on both the sear and the cocking notch on the firing pin, and the pistol seems easier to cock. While testing the disconnect function by holding back the trigger and working the slide, I find that the striker again becomes difficult to cock.... There is some wear on the disconnector hump of the trigger bar...I'm going to smooth that today. May end up replacing the trigger bar. I'll be going to the range to test out the little Bauer tomorrow...anybody have any other ideas? When I shoot it tomorrow, I'm going to try to release the trigger quickly after the shot...on the first range trip, the Bauer would go several rounds trouble free before the same jam occurred. Maybe it had to do with trigger manipulation.
