New LC9s

I ran 100 assorted rounds through my new LC9s yesterday and this thing is sweet.
No malfunctions at all and the trigger pull is constant at 4.5 lbs. and smooth as can be.
Only problem I see so far is that it is going to be bit** to detail strip the slide for cleaning.
I hope someone here gets around to posting instructions for getting the striker out and removing the mag safety.
I found one site on YouTube that covers stripping the slide it but it didn't work for me as far as removing the striker.

Awesome! I'm glad to hear the new S version is a keeper. I want to hold one at some point and see what it feels like.

Glad you like the new LC9s. I haven't seen much information on it yet, since it has only been out a couple of weeks. As much as people seem to like it, that should change soon.

This pistol is getting better and better.
I ran another 100 rounds through it(going broke buying ammo) and it still runs perfectly.
I finally got the striker out and cleaned up and while doing that I found( I think) that most of the trigger resistance is in the sear spring which looks like a small pigtail spring.
I measured the pull at 4.5 lbs. after the 1st 100 rounds and it is now down to 4.0 lbs.
I can easily see 3-3.5lbs. after that sear spring settles down.
This is the first firearm I've bought, since a Belgian made Browning over/under and a Colt Python about 50 years ago, that does not need some tweaking.
Other than the guide rod issue going on in other threads this thing is perfect,other than the mag safety, and I'm sure that one of the gurus here will be posting info on removing that.

There's info out there on the striker cover on the LC9s. I think it's very similar to the "new" striker cover on the SR9.

The striker is easy to remove, similar to most other striker fired guns. However removing the striker is not part of normal cleaning. Maybe remove it after a few thousand rounds, but even that may not be necessary.


REMOVE THE STRIKER

Remove the slide. There is a small hole inside the upper rear of the slide. Insert a small punch or screwdriver into the hole until it stops. Then with the muzzle end pointed down and resting on a table, push down on the punch (pushing towards the front of the slide). Push the end cap out. Remove the punch. Push in on the striker block and the striker will pop out. To remove the blocker, tap the rear of the slide on a table until the pin starts to come out. Remove the pin and the striker block will come out. Reverse for install.

CONGRATS on your new LC9s!!! Being in California, I guess we'll never see those due to that microstamping BS requirement in our state.

Once upon a time I dreamed of living "out west" in California. Not so much, these days...

The improvement in trigger pull in the LC9s is simply like butter.

It's gotta be the best trigger on a striker fired pistol yet.
