Any of you build a full custom gun but used a SPUR HAMMER with a beavertail (like a Cylinder & Slide spur hammer set)? I like the look of a spur hammer, but not sure it makes sense on a 10mm, especially if I put a beavertail. Would it look out of place?

Hoser, Here's a couple of pics from one about 4 years ago. This hammer is an STI variety.

While far from current full-house builds, here is a Behlert with a spur hammer.

Done a few of them, usually bob the original Colt spur hammer to work with the selected beavertail GS.

I'm not sure, but the fit does not look like a drop in. Maybe one of our Behlert expert will chime in.

Nope, it's either their original style which I believe was a #206C or a Safari which looked similar.

I know this is an old thread probably no cares anymore, but here goes anyway. That looks like a Safari Arms G.S. from the 70's
In the late 70s when I was doing my own basement gun smithing I believe it was the only commercial G.S. sold. So I installed them on my Colt Ace and my Colt Combat Commander.
The down side with them were that there wasn't any jig to use for the unknown radius cut. And the design as for a downward pressure into the web of the hand between the thumb and index fiinger.

Then when the hi ride G.S. arrived in either .220 or ..250 radius, King Gun works came out with a hi ride G.S. for the Safari Arms cut

I still c.c. this commander in the winter. and I occasionally still use the Ace in local club Steel Challenge Matches
