Strengths:
Once the Hammer tension is set there is no more adjustment needed to the Hammer. This hammer kit is not adjustable,the rear part of the kit has four holes spaced about .060" apart and it is held in place by the beavertail screw. To set up your adjustment you screw in the beavertail screw to one of the four holes in the rear adjuster,because each hole is spaced a different length apart you can set your spring tension and then do your final adjustments with the reg.
Weaknesses:
Nothing
Conclusion: Once your hammer is set there is no need to touch the adjustment again,unless you have to replace the hammer springs.I have had this kit for almost a year and combined with my Palmers Stabilizer have never had my hammer or velocity come out of adjustment,and I have only had to adjust my velocity to meet field requirements.This kit is typical AKA with excellent quality and ease of installation.If you never want to have your Hammer come out of adjustment again then this Hammer Kit is the only way to go.I would highly recommend this kit to anyone

Strengths: See below.
Weaknesses: See below.
Conclusion: AKALMP Hammer Kits for Autocockers

The new Autococker hammer kits are now available. MSRP is $28 without the cocking rod and $36 with the cocking rod. These are designed for the AKALMP Merlins and VLMs as well as any other 'Cocker that needs a new hammer kit or velocity adjuster. The back piece/velocity adjuster does not have a center screw. Instead it has 4 holes that are tapped .060" apart. There is one hole that is the standard pressure, (Nelson adjuster all the way out), 1 hole for a lighter pressure on the spring and 2 holes for a heavier pressure on the spring. Gone are the days of your velocity changing because the adjuster in the back slipped. Most of the older 'Cocker bodies didn't have threads in the back of the body for the rear part. You had to have a Nelson type hammer kit that had screw threads in the adjuster. These will work perfectly in them as well as in any other 'Cocker. The hammer is hardened steel. The back piece is bare aluminum and can be anodized. The supplied spring is equivalent to a yellow and AKA suggests a yellow spring for the valve as well.

AKA suggests NOT rounding the sear lug. This will make for a shorter and snappier trigger pull. The sear lug is hardened steel with a steel set screw on the side to keep the lug from walking. To keep from damaging the threads on the lug there is a small piece of plastic between the lug and the set screw. If you remove the set screw you'll need to replace the plastic piece. A small piece of weed-eater cord works perfectly.

Installation was very easy and the adjustments I had to make with the spring tension were easily done. With the right springs you should not have to adjust the spring tension once you have it set with the right pressure. If you need to remove the hammer there's no more guessing what the spring pressure is, you just put the screw into the same hole you took it out of.

I've not had any problems with this kit and I highly recommend it to anyone building their own 'Cocker or upgrading their current one.

In today's world it's nice to find a company that still cares about us, the players. This is a much-needed product.
