Those damn hammers . . . . can certainly bite. Each person is different so my history only means something to me.
With the BHP, the original round hammers bite me bad. With every shot. Yet the later spur hammers (factory ones as I have no experience with the C&S hammer) has never bitten me.
And with the 1911 it is the other way around. The Series 70 and 80 spur hammers bite me unless there is a beavertail grip safety installed. The Commander round hammer does not bite me.
I may be the only one in the room who once owned a BHP made in India. Seems that Inglis tooling got shipped over there once Canada wasn't making any new ones. And the Indian gov managed to turn out crude pistols on that tooling. I mean, a front sight staked into a dovetail, noticeably crooked. And magazines so roughly Parkerized that the equally rough magazine disconnector didn't want to slide along the mag when the trigger gets pulled or the mag release gets pushed. Shoulda bought a FEG instead.
