Is there such a thing as to tight for a tumb safety if it works just fine? The hammer won't move at all with it engaged, has a very nice snick on the way down and not quite as nice on the way up, but still very good.

I bought a WC bulletproof wide for my Stacatto C2 DUO and went to fit it tonight and it just dropped right in didn't even get the file out of the toolbox.

I know I could make a pass on it lightly to improve the snick on the way up, but if it passes all the safety checks and the hammer won't move in the slightest, should I bother?

The hammer SHOULD not move with it engaged.

There are a couple of things that could be affecting the "snick up." Check the clearance between the safety and the plunger tube / pin first.

Just a thought.

Process of elimination.
Try the safety without the plunger and spring.
Try the safety without the hammer and sear.

Thanks, PW the Snick is not a big deal for me. If the safety goes all the way up and the hammer will not move when engaged at all, I’m good to go? I kind of feel like I was cheated out of tonight’s mini project......
