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

    I dunno if I want one of those on my pistol.

    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.
