Yep I had the same result in my RIA when I tried to drop a new sear in it. I did not have it fitted so it was foolish on my part, but i figured it out dry firing the pistol before I ever took it to the range. I swapped to another sear and the problem is solved.

I would look at the sear spring, had this on an AO a while back. Bend a little more arc into it. Could be the other things, but would look into the sear spring leaf.

Silly question Grunt but, did you tear the gun down and clean all the shipping preservative off of it and lube it before firing it? That isn't lubricant smothered all over it.

i had this issue, i had the sear spring on wrong, and the hammer wont lock back. When you have it unloaded, rack the slide and see if the hammer stays back.

Far from right. If the sear nose or hammer hooks are worn to the point they cannot engage then this will cause a full auto firing as well.
