I do appreciate your input Richard , but telling me that Steyr have not designed it wrong is nothing new.
The hammer was new to me from Harry when I had a replacement trigger block.
The standard hammer gave big issues which a buddy of mine helped diagnose , I then had a replacement hammer that was intended for an FAC rifle.
The only difference was the length of the cup and a solid block at the front.
It worked a lot better but shows wear marks when periodicly removed.
I think the original hammer with the flat spot is more consistent because it can not rotate , so the hybrid part is to remove the post off the back and install a cup.
got any pics of the wear marks simon ?
do they come back to the same place on the hammer time after time .....ie consistent high spot ?
can you clock the hammer to check for straight and roundness ?
how's the bore in the action ?.....straight ? ......round ? .....any high spots ?
does the steyr hammer strike the valve from it's centre , or offset ? ....i cant remember
lots of pics please .....i love all this
