1" at 60 outdoors is great! I too am considering the light hammer and spring but trying to be careful not to spend to much on this rifle. I've really been having fun experimenting with different things and so far one of the most interesting mod for me has been graphite powder spray. We use it on aircraft brakes and its basically graphite powder that is floated in a solvent. 

It goes on like spray paint then dries rapidly.

I sprayed it on the hammer and it dropped my ES to about 8! Then I decided to enlarge TP and now it's back up to 20 or so😏

Interesting.. so what effect is the spray having in the hammer exactly?
