Choosing a hammer

Post by Tim:H11 on Fri Apr 13, 2018 4:13 pm

If you’re going to build a 1911, what brand do you pick for a hammer? EGW makes good parts; so do other companies - but is there a standard that builders like to use? Additional note: when I say “build a 1911” I am referring to a wadgun for this sport.

I like extreme engineering hammers and parts. They make a lot of the upper end ignition parts for folks. Also STI hammers and sears are very good quality.

I agree with Harrison and the Extreme Engineering for trigger, sear, disconnector and hammer parts.  I certainly have made others work, but generally there is much less to do in order to finish a part from them. I also really like the true radius sear jig and the radius bushings as just a better design.
