Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
Spyder/Java Titanium hammer is 56% the weight of the stock steel hammer.
This is a direct stock hammer replacement — no drilling or machining required.
The titanium surface is almost as slick as the surface of a non-stick skillet.
The lighter hammer weight reduces cycle noise and kick at the same time increases gas efficiency, accuracy and cycle rate.
Our hammer costs less and weighs less; the surface is slicker and more resistant to rust than plated stainless steel replacement hammers. Why pay more?
Product Availability 
The Dark Horizon Spyder/Java Titanium Hammer is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.

Strengths: Weighs less than stock, produces less kick-back which helps accuracy
Weaknesses: None Seen
Review: Well, I bought the DH Hammer/Striker due to an article I read on Otter SC Customes and how it can be used to help make a LP marker.

I noticed a good drop in kick back while firing which helped increased accuracy. You can tell a wieght difference between the Titanium and the stock steel. Very good optional part if going to Low Pressure.

I would suggest in dropping the $39 into buying the DH Hammer/Striker. It's worth the money.
Conclusion: Buy the product, it's worth it's weight (well, lack of weight).

Review: Once I recived the hammer I noticed a significant differance in the weight verses the stock hammer. The TI hammer was a easy swap out of the old and in with the new. the finish is extreamly smooth. Lookes like a replica of the stock hammer except for the weight. I am very pleased with this hammer . It has reduced the amount of blowback and weight to my gun as well as helping it quiet down a bit. I can now run my gun at 300psi without a problem, with the help of other mods of course.
Conclusion: If you are looking for a great performing product this is a must have and i didnt think the price was that bad. a good produce for the right price.

Review: When I received the bolt, I was very impressed with the finish and weight. It is noticeably lighter than stock striker. I had been running my gun with all the pieces above at 260psi with no problems. I installed the Ti bolt and had trouble with firing. It would take two trigger pulls to shoot every time. It seemed like the sear was getting hung up. I visually compared it to the stock bolt. The machining was very close but not exact. There is a notch cut out on the bottom of the striker that the sear catches when the gun is cocked. The notch was just a tad deeper than stock. I figured this was causing the sear to hang up on the first pull and release on the second. I ground down the underside of the striker to make the notch depth equal to the stock striker . After doing this it has performed perfectly.

Out of fairness to Dark Horizon, I must say I was unable to chrono the gun before and after installation. There may have been an inprovement to fps that I dont know about.
Conclusion: It is a good product, bit a little pricey. I was able to fire the gun at low pressures with the stock striker already. There is definitely less blow-back, which could mean better accuracy when shooting rapidly.

Review: When Building my marker I wanted the best and most advanced parts I could find. Im always buying new things to try. This part really does do what it claims. Re-cocking is smoother, marker does not kick back, operating pressure went from ~400psi to ~300psi with no change in velocity or gas usage. Overall performance was enhanced in every part of the marker. Quieter, smoother, and it even allowed a higher rate of fire. With the original striker i could only get about 7 or 8 b.p.s. without chopping. Now i can get about 9 or 10 b.p.s.
Conclusion: With overall gains in every aspect of the marker, this is the single best upgrade you could make.
