Talking Ruger GP100 Bobbed hammer?

I know ruger doesn't sell hammers for the GP100, but is there any others who sell?

The program I am going to use the revolver in has a minimum trigger weight restriction of 3 lbs. If I fine tune the DA trigger and switch to lighter springs, the SA trigger weight will be to light (they allways meassure by SA trigger weight if possible, bobbed hammer=no SA meassure).

My thoughts is to buy a bobbed hammer or if that's not possible, make one from the original hammer, but I don't want to try that if it's difficult getting a new one (just in case i botch it up).

Crowley, It's pretty easy to "bob" a factory GP-100 hammer. There is a natural arc ... all you have to do is cut the spur off with a hacksaw, grind the nub flush, then smooth the surface with a fine file and 400 grit sandpaper then buff it. I've done quite a few and never bother the sear. Here's one I bobbed. I also whacked the barrel down to 2.5" and did some other stuff:

GP100man, Not that hard ... first you have to drill the plunger hole deeper then use the "cutoff" section as a model to cut a new dovetail slot. It took about 30 minutes.

I have no problem doing it, it's just that "if" i f*** it up, I would like to know I can get a new hammer relatively easy. And since ruger don't sell hammers I am a little apprehensive, after all i'm not a metalsmith
