Review: the hammer definitely enhances the performance of my marker. With my combination of aftermarket parts, I am getting the marker down in pressure below 400psi. The issue with wear on the hammer where the sear catches may become a show stopper in the future. Time will tell on that. the trigger work I had to do to get the trigger to re-engage after firing a shot was not a big deal once I figured out what was going on. The sear did not have enough relief to allow the trigger to go forward enough to engage. It didn't happen every shot, but too often for comfort. once I dremel ground down the sear about a millimeter, the problem seems to be solved. Not sure if it will start doing that again after the hammer wears some more though... again, time will tell.
Conclusion: It is a cool product. Really does enhance the performance of the marker. My concerns about it showing significant signs of wear on back of the hammer where the sear catches after only one case of paint worries me about it long term stability. That and the trigger work I had to do for my marker to operate reliably put this at a solid 7.
