Well the obvious thing is the hammer is not making contact with the firing pin which would indicate that something is not in spec. I know I am stating the obvious but maybe have a smith take a look at it. If it is so out of spec that the hammer is not making contact then something may be very wrong.

If you can, put a known good upper on it to quickly isolate the problem to the Chiappa upper or the Plum Crazy lower.

If the Chiappa upper is the same "quality" as my 1911-22, that is where I'd place my bet, but testing by substitution is better than guessing.

I believe the Plastic Plum Crazy uses a plastic hammer & trigger instead of a steel hammer & trigger like a normal AR-15.

Maybe that might cause light strikes?
