I'd love to see testing that proves this is anything more than 1/100,000of a second if at all.
Skeleton hammer = Originally used on the lightweight Colt Commander to prevent hammer bite (Hand getting pinched between the hammer spur & shorter grip safety tang.)
Must be used now with beavertail grip safeties to allow the hammer to nestle down inside the safety tang when cocked. There is no place for a spur hammer to go inside the beavertail safety.
Skeleton trigger = Reduced weight = Prevents trigger bounce, which allows for a lighter sear engagement.
I completely agree!

I just know it works.
When I gunsmithed for 5th Inf AMU we ran very lightened hammers in our centerfire class 1911's. The very best shooters could depend on shooting slightly higher scores with the light hammers in thier guns.
Whether it was faster lock time, or just between thier ears, I couldn't say.
I can say it worked though.
