Broken hammer

Well after a few inexplicable light strikes, my 929 stopped working completely, barely striking the primer.  Initially I thought it was the firing pin, but it turned out to be the hammer.  Is this ever typical?

Wow! What would possibly cause the hammer to break like that? How damaging is dry fire with out snap caps?
Probably a small defect in the steel reated a stress riser causing it to crack.
Dry fire should be no issue without snap caps should be able to do hundreds of thousands of cycles.

I hope this is the answer to a nagging problem with intermittent light strikes that I have had for a while.  I put the original, (now carmonized) hammer back in the gun, and it runs like a top.  I had a few again right before the hammer completely gave way so now, fingers crossed, that problem is solved too.  Just as a side note, do we owe Carmoney royalty every time we say that?

Now you just have to say (generic) reduced weight hammer...

Just kidding. I don't think Mike cares if someone says "Carmonized" hammer. He is justifiably proud of this contribution to the revo world and should be remembered for it.

Well, got off the phone with Apex and they are sending me a new hammer kit.  They are great people to deal with.  

I had no doubt that Randy would take care of this.
