I have a new SSP that is clean and oiled that is experiencing multiple rounds being fired with 1 pull of the trigger. I've tried all types of ammo including HV and SV and the problem is worse with HV (once 3 rounds fired with 1 trigger pull). I just got the pistol back from Walther where they said the "adjusted trigger stop to correct order and checked". I went to the range yesterday and had the same problem. Twice in 100 rounds it discharged 2 rounds with 1 pull of the trigger. I haven't made any adjustments to the trigger. Can anyone suggest something? The manual talks about the "pawl intersection" and I'm not familiar with that term, is this the sear adjustment?
Thanks

Just throwing this out there, my knowledge of the gun and what might cause this mechanically is zero.

Could it be a combination of a light/short trigger and a loose grip/trigger pull?

Would it be possible for a pistol to bounce in a shooters hand and cause the trigger to be pulled multiple times?

You probably have too little sear engagement.
Add a little.

Hope this helps

Don't have experience with the SSP
Just trying to help
I wouldn't use HV ammo
They could damage/wear your pistol pretty fast
What brand ammo have you tried?
I ask because sometimes when I use CCI SV
I get a double shot( it happened maybe 3-4 times)but usually during rapid fire
I now stick to Eley and S&K standard
The CCI has an inconsistent recoil(to me)
Sometimes strong sometimes weak

Thanks for the replies. I'm sure it's the sear engagement and since posting this I've found an article on how to adjust it. There's 7 or 8 adjustments you can make to the trigger group.

If it is not an SSP-E - I suspect it is fixable....

That "AutoFire" usually happens when you Extreamly slowly pull the trigger. You are basically pulling the trigger real fast again.

1) Try and keep the trigger pulled when the trigger releases. (That will also help you in not jerking the trigger)
2) Increase pawl engagement (Screw "a"
( Warning: Only certified engineers qualified in also Rocket Science should even try this as the Walther is OverEngineered for what it is supposed to to)
3) Use a Standard Velocity Munition. Decreasing recoil helps alot.

PS: I have at least 70,000 rounds thru mine

I wish it were that easy (me pulling the trigger twice) and if I could post the video you could see that's not what is happening. I'm pulling the trigger once and in the video you can see that 3 bullets were fired. I've sent the pistol back to Walther and they said they fixed it. First mag and 3 bullets were fired. Then I sent it to a smith that specializes, this time it took to the 3 mag. It's back at Walther now for a replacement of the trigger group (I think) (they've seen the video)

You should also check the headspace. Too small headspace can cause slam fires.

I once chased trigger adjustments for ages to prevent double shots from one of our club pistols, only to discover it had too little headspace. Once that was fixed it only fired one shot per trigger pull!
