Not so long ago, almost every handgun hammer had a spur. This is the rearmost visible extension of the hammer on a pistol or revolver. Hammer spur shape was very important on revolvers with single action trigger systems.
Usually when the hammer spur is machined off, the hammer is then considered " bobbed." I have a S&W model 60 which the hammer is.
A hammerless firearm is a firearm that lacks an exposed hammer or hammer spur . Although it may not literally lack a hammer, it lacks a hammer that the user.
Just wondering if anyone has changed the hammer on the usp compact from bobbed to the spurred in order to manipulate it manually? I know.
On the Bodyguard, the shroud was integral to the frame and looked sleeker, but still left a nub of hammer spur exposed for single-action.

I suffer hammer bite but like the looks of the original style hammer with the spur. Does anyone make an extended beavertail that will.
