I grinded the hammer down on my PMKMS in an attempt to reduce the excessive binding which was caused by me putting on the templace on an ACE blank incorrectly. (Without thinking I pulled the sides of the template up then glued it on, thereby raising all of the holes a wee bit.) So now I don't get the extreme binding, but now since the hammer is so skinny the carrier doesn't push the hammer down far enough so the disconnector won't catch it. So by fixing one problem, I've created another, potentially more deadly problem. Also I have a worthless G2 hammer and I'll have to get another compliance part instead. Grrr..... What do you guys think, should I just scrap it and get a new blank? I'd rather not ruin another perfectly good hammer attempting to salvage this blank, but I may try it with a foriegn made hammer.

Can you do it with a stick welder? Otherwise I'd have to have a welding shop do it.

If you want to mail it to me I will TIG weld it for you. I can build it up and let you file- grind it to the size you need.

Hey Hotbarrel that sounds great. I hope it's not going to be too much trouble for you though. PM me an address and I'll send it to you.

You might try taking a little of the underside of the disconnector to allow it to rotate forward more. You might get lucky and it'll catch the hammer.

You should scrap the whole thing and send it to me. I can send it down range for something to shoot at! Just kidding......send it to hotbarrel!

Hotbarrel has graciously offered to weld up the hammer for me, so I can try shaping it again. If it comes close then I'll do as avatar said and take a little off the disconnector. Better than ordering another ace blank.
