Hey Cemetery !!! Happy Thanksgiving
I like both Pettifogger's and fbertalotto's "fixes." for the Hammer face, but neither (my opinion) resolves the Cap Jam issue. I retired and
sold off my machines so I don't have a mill anymore. But ...... I shoot Gunfighter with Cap Guns exclusively. With a gun in each hand,
malfunctions are just unacceptable. What I do:
I drill the center of the hammer channel for a "post." I make the post out of the same drill I use to make the hole. I glue the post in place
with JB Weld. You absolutely must be careful not to get the Post down into the raceway for the cylinder star.
Then, using the dreaded Dremel and the same size drill bit's again, I push the hammer slot back to clear the post. Blocks the Caps nicely.
I'm not done yet ............
I replace the OEM nipples with SlixShot nipples and replace the OEM Main Springs either with VTI Gunparts reduced Main Springs or
"Lee's Gunsmithing Gunfighter" Main Springs.
Over the past two + seasons, I have had exactly ZERO Cap Jams. Remington # 10 Caps.
