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.
The old spade type hammer tries to rotate but cant due to dragging on the underside of the roller but this is irregular due to the fact that the hammer although being spun by the spring is actually free floating as in its being chucked down the channel with no preload from the spring so sometimes doesnt which is the opposite in the newer (external) hammer which is always under pressure. Ive machined a firing body and fitted bearings/cups either side of the spring so that the spring could rotate through its compression/decompression cycle.......... It didnt work.
I dont care now as im Anschutz. Are there any Anschutz threads i can bullsh1t my way in to?
