    Personally I have installed dozens of TACO FCG's with no issues or abnormal wear.
    Also used other types like Arsenal and some no name without problems.

    The OP hammer follow is abnormal and could be the assembly or retainer or some other cause yet to be determined. But a function test is a good start.

    There's one other possibility given that thousands of rounds have gone through the receiver.

    On occasion, the receiver will open up at the axis pins and allow a shift so that the trigger components no longer fit properly. This is particularly noticeable if the axis pins are anchored with a method other than tension.

    Looks like the hammer spring is bad. The one leg will slide out of place and rests on the side of the disconnector. If I cycle it a few times it will move back slightly, and a couple more times and it slides over against the disconnector again.

    Don't know why I hadn't noticed it sooner, guess I wasn't paying close enough attention to the spring and where it was.

    Thanks guys
    ...now to get a new spring.

    You might be able to fix this (but your seeing it so you'll know better), the end of the leg can be bent outward with pliers. Just grab it near the 90 degree bend by the trigger (on the long section) and twist the pliers a little, it doesn't take much. Don't go too far, you don't want the spring riding tight against the receiver either.
    But get a spare spring if you don't already have any.

    biggun, I only know of the disconnector issue with their FCG, but other products had poor QC issues too, like their Garand clips had a poor finish and didn't feed properly, so anything is possible with their products.
