Hammer bounces on my 94

Hi everyone, I have noticed a potential issue with my model 94. It is a pre 64, 30-30, it fires fine but I noticed that the hammer bounces back after firing. I do not recall ever seeing this happen before. Is there a part that is failing or perhaps an adjustment to be made.  Any advice would be very helpful. 

thanks everyone

Peter

Weak mainspring.  Replace it.

Thanks for the response. I figured it was something like that but was not sure what part was failing. Is it a big deal that most places are selling newer production parts, or is there a place you can recommend to get original parts from? 

thanks again

Brownell’s and Homestead are my first stops when shopping for this type of parts. Midway may have it but I get distracted easily on that site. Wink

If the problem is the mainspring, have you checked the lower tang screws to be certain the spring is adjusted properly?

You are referring to adjusting the visible tang screws right there on top. I thought those just held the wood stock to the receiver.

The spring screw is under the lever on the lower tang. It  is the bigger screw. The smaller one beside it is the spring tension screw.  RR

If you take off the butt stock, you can see how the two lower tang screws work on the hammer spring.

Hi Sir, Hey so sorry it took so long for me to respond back. I work with firearm sales and it has been off the wall crazy. Anyways I just made an adjustment to the lower tang screw and the hammer tightened right up. Is it still recommended to replace the main spring as this is a 1958 rifle?

Thanks for the advice.

I wouldn’t replace it if it functions properly. This type of spring doesn’t seem to be a normal maintenance item. Glad it was an easy fix for you.
