If you own or are planning to own a firearm, it's important to know all the parts. One of those parts is a hammer. Notably, it's easy to feel overwhelmed and ask what is a gun hammer. The article below explains what it is are why it's essential, according to Fusion Firearms.
What Are Hammers (Firearms)?
If you know how guns work, you're aware of how vital a hammer is. It's the part of a gun that strikes the percussion primer/cap or the firing pin, igniting the propellant and firing the projectile. It's similar to a normal hammer nail gun in both function and form hence the name. The sear holds the hammer in place.
Most hammers are usually pivoted in a firearm. A linear hammer is slightly different, although it works almost the same as a striker.
Like other parts, your hammer gun will wear out and need replacing. When that happens, you can contact Fusion Firearms for your replacement needs. Browse our huge selection of hammers and choose what you need.
