John Browning designed the M1911 pistol over 100 years ago. Today, many 1911s are seen with skeleton spur hammers. And while I am quite partial to the look, one cannot argue the fact that a traditional 1911 begs a solid spur hammer. But enough about vanity – hammers serve a vital purpose in the operation of many firearms. And because they can take quite a beating, replacements may one day become necessary.

What is the purpose of the 1911 wide spur hammer? In any pistol that utilizes a hammer as opposed to a striker, the hammer is one of the most vital components. Aptly named due to its similarity in both looks and functionality to the common tool, the hammer is responsible for striking the firing pin, which in turn strikes the cartridge primer and completes the firing sequence. In the 1911, it is located adjacent the sear at the top of the frame and at its most rearward point. This newly manufactured part was manufactured to mil-spec 1911 specifications and features a black oxide finish. Note that a wide variety of the 1911 hammers exist. Ours is designed specifically for mil-spec pistols.  

Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, especially all components that impact the firing sequence. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes necessary immediately – not only to keep a firearm functioning properly but also to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.

It is also important to consider availability. At this time, Keepshooting.com is seeking to provide our customers with a wide selection of replacement parts for the M1911 pistol. Several parts are now readily available on our website at an affordable price. If you have any need for spare parts, now would be a good time to take advantage of this offering.

Whether your 1911 needs repair or you just want to replace the skeleton spur hammer with something a bit more traditional, our 1911 wide spur hammer is an excellent choice. Either way, keeping spare parts on hand is a good idea.
