    i have a Commander that was heavily modified by the previous owner, including all new fire control parts. So this gun will have a failure about every 3 to 5 shots where the previous shot fired okay and the gun has successfully chambered the next round and the hammer is cocked and ready to go...

    I’ll leave out the brand. The 5” 45 acp 1911 had about 600 rounds of 230 grain brass fmj and roughly 60 +P jhp (950/460) rounds through her before the issue. The issue is that when I pull the trigger the hammer doesn’t fall. The trigger moves normally. The hammer does not half cock or anything...

    Hey all, I'd like a bit of advice here. I have a full sized Colt NRM in blue that I have wanted to try a different hammer on to see how it looks and feels. I'd like to try the wide spur hammers like those found on the WWI repros from years back. I was told that there are 2 versions of this...

    I’d like to do some light modifications to a blue series 80 govt, going towards the full size commander look like this: I know A smith could notch my current GI grip safety, but it would be easier to buy one and have it installed along with the hammer. Is this the grip safety I want that...

    Hey all. Been a while since I’ve been here so HELLO to all. I hope you and your loved ones have been blessed and are having a wonderful Christmas season. What I’d like to ask you guys and gals is about what kind of hammer for a NRM Colt. I’ve been going back and forth for a year or so...

    So, is it just me or do others here not like the standard skeletonied triggers? I love the spur hammer on my A2 and I really like the retro ring style commander hammers as well. I know its a little thing, but I just think that the de facto skeleton hammers need to be changed. Same with...

    Hello, I recently bought a very slightly used Smith & Wesson SW1911, The previous owner had less than 100 rounds through it. When I was cleaning it I was trying to adjust a few things and wanted to make sure I got the hammer all set, without thinking (I know i messed up please dont focus on...

    So I picked up a DW specialist the other day. Love Dan Wesson, really good quality for the money. Anyway, taking it down, checking it out, I always look all the parts over etc. Took this image of the hammer/ sear engagement. This does not look like the proper neutral relationship. Am I missing...

    I have a Ruger SR1911 6722 (the lightweight 9mm commander). It runs like a top and a I absolutely love it. At 3k down the tube, zero malfunctions including with Tula. However, I did install a Harrison Design small radius firing pin stop (which is fantastic, really makes a difference in...

    Total noob question but I want to make sure before I order another hammer. I had a trigger job done but I want to put a different hammer. Would this effect my trigger pull?

    Hammer cocked and safety on, when the trigger is pulled, the hammer falls...but just slightly. Maybe 1/4". If I disengage the safety, the hammer falls to half cock. Ugh, what do I need replace?

    I've been a little bothered by a little wiggly part on my ZOID build. I'm not sure if this is a REAL problem or if I caught a bit of OCD from all the exposure to the phenomenal builds y'all have and shared via our "Show-n-Tell" sessions. Anyway, when my hammer is in its flaccid state, I can...

    I'd like to buy a Colt stainless Commander hammer. Wondering if perhaps someone has a new gun take-off and would like to sell. Regards.

    Gents, I have the need for a few "ready to be discarded, but still in your parts box" hammer pins and sear pins. These do not need to be pretty - I don't need new. I need them for a little positioning jig I am working with. I will compensate you for your shipping and whatever reasonable $$...
  17. Rifles & Shotguns
    Since I'm on a bit of a BP/BPCR kick and it looks like we have some others of a similar mindset, I figured I'd see if anyone can answer this. I found a Sporting Rifle for sale and the owner says if the lever is closed while the hammer is at full cock, it will fall and the rifle will fire. I...

    So I've been working this down trying to get it just so. Anybody see anything wrong with the relationship here?

    We have a Python that was built in 1956 with a broken hammer spur. Hoping to find a replacement. Thanks Dan

    I recently put together this 80% frame that is a Para Ord p10 clone and went together fairly well, but upon further inspection found that the hammer that would cock properly by hand would not when racking the slide. I took it a part and found that the hammer is hitting the beavertail grip...
