SKU: Garand Hammer Categories: , Tag:


National Match Prepped, this hammer is the only M1 / M14 hammer to ever offer drop-in NM performance, along with a 25%
reduction in lock time (hammer swing time).

Polished, ground, and fully hardened sear edge will release the hammer like breaking a glass rod.
A hard / low friction surface coat makes the trigger pull butter smooth and eliminates wear.
All parts are true ‘drop-in’ with no additional fitting, polishing, or tuning required on the parts or on the rifle.

Lock time is the time between when the trigger releases the hammer, and the hammer hits the firing pin.  That’s time during
which the rifle is typically swinging off-target.  Especially in offhand shooting, if shots are broken as you are moving ‘off-target’,
that delay can cost points.

The ShootingSight NM Hammer is machined from billet steel to be light weight, reducing polar moment by 40%, and optimizing
geometry for speed. Lock time is reduced 25% from 8.5ms to 6.5ms; which is as fast as a mil-spec hammer on an AR-15.

Sear edges are ground and polished to be sharp before an ultra hard and low friction surface coating is added.  The result is a
smooth trigger pull, and a clean break which will not wear.

Comes with a new tool-steel hammer pin.

Consumer Comments:

“These are worth every cent you pay for them. Try one in a match, you will never it have any other way. I got them in my match
conditioned 14s and in my McCoy M1. When I can afford another one, it will go in my other McCoy M1.”  Nez R.

“It’s fantastic.  Predictable, and so FAST!  Whole system feels like running a bolt action.  I like the feel of your NM better than
others, which to me interpose a disconnect at the junction of subconscious/trigger break, which make it difficult to ‘time’ a shot.”

    I used the Shooting Sight hammer and hammer pin in conjunction with the trigger pin and trigger spring from the SEI Trigger Upgrade Kit from MidwayUSA. I am also using the stock SAI trigger. The trigger now feels like a premium aftermarket trigger. All the 1940’s feel has been replaced with a very refined, precise and modern feel. The first stage is shorter and lighter and the break is nice and smooth versus the very defined, heavy break. The creep and the slight slop have been eliminated. There was also slight hesitation in my trigger for the hammer to release (almost like it was getting hung up ever so slightly) that has been eliminated. The lock time has also been noticeably reduced. The reset is nice and short. I am estimating a 4 lbs trigger pull, down from the heavy stock 5 lbs and a couple of ounces.

    The hammer itself is well machined and much improve over the SAI cast part. It does lack the tail that catches on the trigger guard so I thought I installed it improperly initially. It functions just fine without it. The improvements with this trigger job and hammer has dramatically tightened my groups because I am no longer struggling with the trigger. The stock trigger is what you would expect from a rifle of it’s era. This trigger job makes it feel like a modern rifle. I would definitely recommend this hammer as part of a trigger job. I would also like to eventually see a machined, non adjustable trigger from this company to really push my trigger that little extra further for those of us who do not want to deal with adjustment screws. I will definitely be using this hammer on any future M1A builds.
