No general appammcc Check exterior of materiel for missing or broken pans

(8) Check storage conditions of general supplies and ammunition.

(9) Inititate a thorough report on materiel on "deadline" with reasons therefore, for further appropriate action.

(10) Report to the responsible officer any carelessness, negligence, unauthorized rmxlificatiun, or tampering. This Tcport should be accompanied by recommendations for correcting the unsatisfactory condition.

K Specific» The specific groups and assemblies to be inspected for serviceablity are listed in TB ORD 587 and also are applicable to pieembarkation and inspection.

c, Safety Tests. Perform the following safety tests as indicated in (I) through (4) below.

(1) Safety test (fig 19). With the pistol unloaded, cock the hammer and press the safety upward into the safe (locked) position. Grasp the grip so the grip safety is depressed and squeeze the trigger tightly three or four times. If the hammer falls, the safety must be replaced.

(2) Grip safety test (fo 20). With che pistol unloaded, cock the hammer and without depressing the grip safety point the pistol downward and squeeze the trigger three or four times. If the hammer fall* because the grip safety is depressed by its own weight, the grip safety may be corrected by replacing sear spring.

(3) Half<ock position test (fa. 21 and 22). With the pistol unloaded, draw back the hammer until the sear engages the half-cock position notch. Then squeeze the trigger. If the hammer falls, the hammer or sear must be replaced or repaired- Draw the hammer back nearly to hill cock position, do not squeeze the trigger, and then let thumb slip off hammer. The fuwimer should fall only to the half<ock notch. Rcplacc hammer when it falls past the halt-cock position.

(4) JXscimnecfc/r test.

(a) With the pistol unloaded, cock the hammer. Push the slide group V4'inch to the rear (fig. 23) and hold in chat position while squeezing trigger, lxt slide group go forward, maintaining pressure on trigger. If the hammer falls, the disconnector is worn and must be replaced.

(b) Pull the slide group rearward until the slide stop is engaged (tig. 23). Squeeze the trigger and release slide group simultaneously. The hammer should not fell. If it does, replace the disconnector.

(c) Release the pressure on the trigger and then squeeze it. The hammer should then fell (fig. 23). If it does not fall, check the sear spring for weakness. Also check for a faulty disconnector which would prevent hammer from felling. The disconnector should prevent the release of the hammer unless the slide group is in forward position, safely interlocked. This also prevents the firing of more than one shot at each squeeze of trigger.

16. Ordnance Shop Inspections a. Initial Inspection. Inspection procdurcs outlined in paragraphs 14 and 15 apply also co initial shop inspection. If materiel received in shops is not ragged to indicate the nature of the repair, steps should be taken to determine the cause of unserviceability and the estimate of parts required.

b. Troubleshooting. Table 3 lists malfunctions, probable causes, and corrective actions. Hor troubleshooting within the scope of operator and urganiiational maintenance manuals, covering materiel contained herein.

c. In-Process Inspection. Detailed instructions for in-process inspection of the materiel arc contained in the repair chapter together with applicable repair instructions.
