Kinda different.  What or why requires machine work for it to function in da/sa?
Hooks are different for de-cockers, and sa hammer doesn't have holes for the disconnector pin.

You guys are getting my thoughts flowing....

So what if I bobbed all but some of the top and rounded off a spur.  Would be a same to refinish it, but maybe it would look decent and YES - it would take off weight.  Less mass juices up KE (1/2 m V^2) and you might run an even lighter mainspring with 100% ignition. 

Someone should photoshop this on a P01 or PCR with CGW race hammer.

It is rough, but you get the idea.

Less fishy. Color pattern has possibilities.

My concern with that hammer would be breaking it sooner or later.

Notice how that factory "bobbed" hammer is thicker up the back (flat on the front, arched on the back). 

Don't know if that's for weight or strength (resistant to breaking).

I stopped carrying the SIG 556R.  SIG changed models and couple/three times and stopped supporting it with parts.  So, I stopped supporting SIG.  Back to the tried/true AR15 Carbine.

I wondered the very same thing before I cut it. I thought the ring was added support as the contact point to firing pin is right at the base of the circle.

Bobbing the CGW “square” hammer might actually look nice and leaving on some spur might look decent but the thinnest part is at the top where the spur is.

Got out my handy dandy dremel and now have a usable P-01.

I can now enjoy this pistol using my normal grip with no more worries from hammer bite. The hammer is a CGW Competition without of course the cocking piece. Should have done this a long time ago. For anyone on the fence, would highly recommend.

Neat, did you just cut, polish it and reblue it? Glad that it is working out, thank you for the pics.

Dbarn,

That looks good. How thick is the hammer now where it hits the firing pin?

Steve, I've not measured, however the thickness is the same as it was before with only the cocking piece carefully ground down to the spine then lightly sanded. I can tell you that just like before I can set off most primers with an 11.5 hammer spring and all of them with a 13lb to include Winchester NATO.

Thoroughly enjoying being able to shoot this pistol with confidence and no worries whatsoever with hammer bite. The look has quickly grown on me as well.

I know a nice hammer improves the SA trigger pull. 

What does it do for the double action trigger pull.  I'm curious.  Does it make the trigger pull lighter?  Just smoother?
I stopped carrying the SIG 556R.  SIG changed models and couple/three times and stopped supporting it with parts.  So, I stopped supporting SIG.  Back to the tried/true AR15 Carbine.
