    One word: OUCH!!!!

    Here's a video on my Springfield Armory 1911-A1, Mil Spec, great to have a replica of the World War II warhorse, but I can definitely do without the hammer bite.

    I do have to work on all that, but the problem that day was I getting hammer bite so bad I could hardly concentrate on what I was doing.

    I never get hammer bite, thankfully.

    Even the notorious Browning Hi-Power doesn't bite my hand.

    Nice gun Armsdorf. :thumbsup:

    I never did either. My first couple of 1911s had the old style drop tang grip safety and spur hammere.
