    Check to make sure the hammer spring legs are resting on top of the pin. If the hole is large, there are some specialized anti-walk pins available.

    Not just resting on top of the pin (in the groove/s) but that the hammer spring is installed correctly.

    Pictures can make a difference. It's really great when someone takes the time to actually go beyond simple answers, like Mvician.

    Thank you :supergrin:

    If the spring is installed backwards, trigger pull will be "lighter" but will not have enough "force" to keep the leg in the groove. This will let the pin "walk" and if it goes far enough cause the rifle to "burst" fire.

    I installed kns anti walk pins. They prevent pin walk, plus I like the look of them.

    Buy a lower that is in spec.

    Then buy a good LPK or the KNS pins.

    Did you correct the actual problem or are you just going to put a bandaid on it?

    Well actually, I'm not a patch kinda guy. Once I get into it, I'll repair the problem and finish it with the kns.:cool:
