I have used them-light primer strikes abound.

Try cutting down a old hammer take of the back of the hook like this and it will run fine. I am using he JP yellow spring kit in one of my guns with my cut down hammer and had no light strikes at all even a Beta dump

Yes saved me alot of money when all they do is the same thing and sell it for alot of cash. The upper is a Bushmaster Dissy 16" with the M4 barrel setup. The trigger pull is very nice for only $10 . Just let me know if you want some picks of my hammer if you want to go the cheap and affective way.

Pics please. What did you use to cut it?

A diamond cut off disc. U could use just a dremal with cut of disc or a good hacksaw then just clean it up, when done oil it and your done. I will get pics up soon but it look just like the JP one in my pics.

i just went to jp's site and they want $49 bucks for teh speed hammer. granted the new one is all laser cut and hardend and whatnot. its also for n jp website, "The JP Speed Hammer is not compatible with standard M15 trigger parts. " what good is that for a POOR mans trigger job. im going to get alot of springs and hammers and cut them on the mill and sell them. mine will be compatable with m15 parts. dont colt make a competition hammer that is the same thing. 50 bucks for a hammer

As a quick check when I first saw these, I loaded up 1000 55gn soldiers with CCI military primers and equiped one of my rifles with these springs. Zero, I repeat, ZERO failures in that first 1K. Since then I have put over 7.5K rounds through that same rifle, same springs. Not one recorded (and I'm in aviation maintenance, and I keep ANAL log books) light primer strikes. This rifle is my test mule for ammo.

They work fine, last a long time.

I bought a cutting attachment for my dremel and lopped off part of the hammer-looks just like M4's pic-I expect good things out of this setup-now off to the range.
