In any hammer-fired rifle, as opposed to striker-fired, 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. Most semi-automatic rifles are hammer-fired. Such is the case with the Heckler & Koch G3.
Keepshooting.com now offers replacement G3 hammers. Like many of our G3 parts and accessories, the G3 hammer is an original HK part. The hammer is housed in the trigger pack and held under spring tension around the hammer pivot pin. When an appropriate amount of pressure has been applied to the trigger, it will act on the sear, which in turn releases the hammer and allows it to continue the firing sequence.
The hammer is one part of a firearm that takes quite a beating. Ensure that your rifle is never out of order due to a worn out hammer with a replacement G3 hammer for $7.95. As our mothers always say, “It’s better to be safe than sorry.”
The G3 hammer is a part housed in the rifle’s trigger pack and allows for the rifle to complete the firing sequence after the trigger has been pulled. It is an original factory part made in Germany by HK.
Spare parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly, including hammers. If a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement is necessary.
