I was cleaning my SAR 1 today after shooting it, and noticed that the hammer looks like it has a wave or divot or some kind of mark from connecting.  Its real small, and so slight that its hard to feel with the finger.
Do SAR's have soft hammers, do they deform on contact?  I've only shot about 500 rounds out of this gun, is it a concern?
Thanks in advance, I probably havn't described the mark well, suffice it to say it just looks like a contact deformity.

it is normal for the century hammer to deform some. some more than others. all of the ones i have have what you speak of and i am not going to replace them unless they get worse. now i have read where some people have had some real bad deformation(mushrooming). i say keep an eye on it if it gets bad replace with a g-tech/tapco/global trades/kvar or a red star arms fire control group. all are good products.

Yep...the Century fire control parts are worth replacing. Very poor quality.

My SAR 2 has roughly 5k rounds through it and the hammer is deformed badly.  However, it still strikes true, so I am going to run with it a little longer(until I save the pennies for a Red Star Arms FCG).

Any gunsmith can install the FCG, but frankly, it is a job you can do yourself, even if you have minimal mechanical ability.

SAR hts wear is , ahem, normal and varied. You can do the swap yourself if you wish.
