Can anybody explain all the cut-outs on a hammer of SIG 226.
The main cut out is for the sear to engage, but what are the other ones for?
A picture with arrows and explanation would be appreciated.
Thanks a million.
This is a heavily cropped part of a series, but hopefully good enough (and sorry, no arrows).
The large notch at the left is where the trigger bar contacts the hammer and rotates it during the trigger pull in the double action mode.
The small notch in the middle is the single action cocking notch. The hook of the sear fits into that notch when the hammer is cocked.
The ledge at the upper right is what contacts the sear when the hammer is decocked using the decocking lever and prevents the hammer from moving forward to contact the firing pin.
The hammer pictured above is actually the “sport” hammer and has a narrower single action cocking notch than the usual hammers. Below is a photo of other Classic line hammers with the DA/SA hammer at the left.
