Being I can't tell if you are being a smart-ass or just can't create a sentence FOR SHIT--I will give you the benefit of the doubt and respond.
The mainspring tension screw, also called a strain screw, well, it tensions the mainspring, which in turn creates the force necessary for the hammer (its striking power). If its loose, not enough tension--therefore light hammer strikes.
It is located on the gripframe, towards the bottom, front (triggerguard side).
If you have wood target grips or rubber Uncle Mikes, Pachmeyr or similar, you will have to remove them to see it and tighten it. If you have wood service grips it will be exposed.
