Hammer spur, perhaps? (This is the part protruding from the slide.) Like this one?
Or this one?
The long hammer spur on the top gun is easier to manually cock or uncock, especially with one hand, but if you subscribe to the "cocked and locked" doctrine, there is little reason to do this. If it were made any longer, it would come back and bite your hand.
A stronger hammer spring can alleviate light primer strikes but the correct solution is having the right length strut.
Oddly enough, I ran into that on a new Series 80 Colt LW Commander once. The strut was to spec. The hole for the cap pin was mislocated.
I chucked the cap in the lathe and faced off .010 inch for the fix. A couple years later, I swapped out the mainspring housing.
