Default Specialty Gunsmith - Savage Pistols

I have a Savage 1907 pistol with an 'iffy' sear. I can find replacement parts, but I'm not sure I know all the secrets of making it work correctly.

Anyone know anything about these pistols, or know anyone who does?

I know they're not a real hot, up to date item.

I've done some work on a couple.

Check this guy out. He may know something.

Savageman, it is actually a 1917 (I have one 1917 and two 1907 models, so I get confused.)

Looks like this:

Dan, Do you know how to set the sear engagement so it doesn't double? (Or triple or multiple...) I can get the breech block apart and back together, but I don't know the details of how it works properly (I can see the general way it works, just not why it slips off from time to time.)

That could be the way the angle sear engages the hammer.
Or it could be that a spring is losing tension.
