Failure to Cock Hammer

Ran into a problem today at the range. Although it was successfully loading the next round, the Micro was failing to cock the hammer. I'd seen that a few times before but today it was happening regularly. It happened to all three of us who shot it. My sense is it happened more frequently the dirtier it got. It was clean before we started. We have approximately 500 rounds through it total.

Any ideas? Lubrication?

Thanks!

Strip it. Clean it. Oil real good, and run it wet.

Anywhere special beside the rails? Should I oil the hammer itself?

Follow the instruction for lubing the gun in your owners manual.

Two places where I wasn't lubing that the manual tells you was the disconnector and between the hammer and the frame. It's wet now! Three drops on each rail is a lot of oil!
