    I can tell you how to get a FA gun. Not too hard to do.

    Go downtown, find a really creepy alleyway with a panel van sitting there. Knock three times on the back door and tell them you need some hardware.

    The most important question......in my mind......
    is why the hammer was not stopped by the half-cock.

    This kinda crap is extremely dangerous. Imagine the user at a public range.
    He inserts a magazine and lets the slide fly forward. He has only one hand on the pistol and no inkling that 8 pills are about to leave the muzzle in less than 1 second.

    Where might the last few rounds come to rest? In me or a member of my family? Quite possible.

    Then the yo-yo stones the hammer hooks and prematurely declares 'problem resolved'.

    I'm all for letting Darwin improve our species. But please, with firearms,
    it is unacceptable in public.

    Most likely due to some excessive polishing (or worse) of the sear during a bubba trigger job. And/or the installation of a so-called 'drop in' part.

    This makes me nervous about my up coming trigger swap.

    How does this explain the failure of the half-cock?

    By taking to much material and/or changing the sear engagement angle far enough to override the 1/2 cock stop.

    Flipper,
    You just demonstrated your ignorance of the 1911 fire control system.
    Sorry.
    I call them as I see them.

    This is a big part of the problem. Guys dispensing technical advice that
    don't have a clue.
    Most of them mean well, I'm sure. But now watch Flipper's response.

    Too much overtravel causing the sear to loose tension?

    Whoever worked on the 1911 in question would appear not to have a clue.

    PW it's my understanding that most SA hammers do not have a true 1/2 cock Intercept /interference "notch" deep enough to reliably hold the hammer if it misses the sear engagment. Is this a correct understanding?

    "Is this a correct understanding?"

    No. All Springfield hammers have an adequate half-cock notch or shelf.
