    Re: problem

    What caliber? You may need the heavy hammer spring that comes with the 7.62x39 kit.

    Re: problem

    Most,if not all Russian ammo has abnormally hard primers.The 7.62x39 spring should cure this problem.Also make sure the legs of the hammer spring are on top of the trigger pin (the pin the trigger pivots on).

    Re: problem

    I would check your trigger and make sure that the spring is installed correctly. Have you had any work to the trigger? If the original spring was bent or replaced that might cause it.

    Re: problem

    Military ammo can have hard primers as well,even the brass cased ammo.
