Exclamation Hammer

Sometimes when I rack my slide the hammer goes back with it. I have a pro carry ii and it is 3 weeks old and has 500 rounds through it. Would love some feedback. Thanks

I have two PCII's and that's normal operation. Without a magazine or with one loaded,that's what it's suppose to do. Hope this helps your question.

That's what it's suppose to do unless the gun is already cocked then the hammer will remain motionless in the cocked position.

The firing pin stop in the slide contacts low on the hammer moves up the hammer face as the slide travels to the rear and cocks the hammer. Even if the hammer is already at full cock, racking the slide will cause contact and move the hammer rearward a small amount lifting the sear notch of the hammer off the sear so the sear spring can cam the sear fully rearward so as the hammer comes forward again it rests on the sear at safe engagement.

I'm mostly ignern't about such things, but isn't that the way a single action gun with a hammer has to work?

I wonder if he means the hammer drops rather then staying cocked.

I'll bet that's what he means.

If the sear and hammer hook are okay the. It may be as simple as increasing the sear spring pressure with a slight bend in order prevent hammer follow if that is what is occurring.

I wonder if the gun is new or just new to this owner. If new and hammer follow is occurring then send it back.

I'm probably wrong, but I seem to recall that monkeying with the screw in the face of the trigger can cause such things to occur. (I'm probably wrong, but thought I'd throw it out there, just in case)
