Bobbing a 1911 hammer spur?

I finally saved up my pennies and have enough to buy a duck butt grip safety (plus jig) for my Norinco but not enough for a new hammer. I was wondering if bobbing a USGI style hammer spur enough to work with a duck butt grip safety, will the hammer have enough mass to get the job done with hard primer ammo, without replacing springs through out(has a 23lb main 16 lb recoil)? Not a lot of bobbing but enough to get away (+ some for safety) with using a duck butt.

This gun is for range use only.

Thanks for your time

Answer is yes. You will have enough mass, it should work just fine.

Should work just fine. If not a slightly heavier spring should do the trick.
