    Default 9mm StG hammer - machine shop?

    BLUF - need a custom hammer made. Anyone know anyone or any shop that can do that?


    About a year ago I purchased a StG from someone on this forum. He was selling off some weapons for a gentleman that was dealing with health issues.
    The guy had designed a semi only StG 44, in 9mm. Turned his own barrel, made a custom blowback bolt for it, etc.

    Anyway, recently, the hammer cracked. No problem, I'll get a new one. Well, turns out an original stg hammer is just a bit shorter than the hammer that was used in this conversion.

    So, cycling the bolt moves the hammer back, but not far enough for the sear to catch.

    Now to the point - does anyone know of anyone or any shop that can make one off hammers? I still have the conversion hammer to use as a template.

    Well..fixed the hammer by welding it back together. However, I'm still open to ideas as who knows if that weld will actually hold long term.

    I'd bet the price of a one off machined hammer would not be cost effective from any machine shop. I'm familiar with the industry. You may want to find a local shop with a cmc and 3d printing capability in metals. Not a cheap option, but probably cheaper than a shop making it from scratch. My .02. Overall this will not be a cheap endeavor

    Another option is find some old guy that's got a Bridgeport in his garage that's looking for a challenge. You could put out an add in the green sheet

    if it was for my weapon, I would simply make one and then harden it

    not sure if the hammer is a modified original or a newly made part. .. you need to compare the two. RTG has spare hammers ( factory hardened)

    if not would take a piece of steel and hand file and drill to match it

    I made a new safety for my mp-44 the other day using a broken one, using drill rod ,a HK G-3 safety flat spring and RTG MP-44 lever, till a I can locate a whole unit.
    all by hand and with my lathe AKA my power drill in the vise not finished I need to heat treat and trim , then waiting on the 7mm e- clips

    It is not a modified original. I bought a spare from RTG to compare. It is, however, the same hammer. The difference is the 9mm hammer is approximately half an inch longer.

    What method are you using to harden?
