This hammer is everything that Wilson says it is. I have installed it into a 1991 with a drop in beavertail and it looks great. When I pulled it out of the package I noticed how well the sear engagement area was polished. I did have to re-fit the factory thumb safety for what it’s worth, which isn’t surprising. With the factory Colt sear, the trigger pull is a bit lighter than it was with the factory spur hammer and still has a bit of creep. I am certain it will mate nice with a Wilson sear and trigger.
Great Looking Hammer
I put this hammer along with a bulletproof sear in my RIA G.I.. Be prepared to fit the thumb safety lug, as it took a very careful bit of fitting. Aside from the fit to factory thumb saftey this hammer looks amazing with a full fit stainless bevertail and is nearly drop in. Another great Wilson part!
