I have a S&W model 36 that I had bobbed....I took about half of the spur off. Turned out to be a bad idea. The bobbed hammer failed to ignite the majority of rounds that were loaded. I tried all kinds of factory fresh ammunition and it was completely random as to which cylinder failed to fire. Wound up having to put a new full hammer back on.
Did it fire reliable before you cut the spur off? Did you change the mainspring?
Yes, it was completely reliable before I bobbed the hammer...and has been 100% reliable again after replacing the bobbed hammer with new "complete" hammer. I did not replace the mainspring before or after.

I think that one of the notions common to the anti-gunner is the idea that being a victim is 'noble'; as if it is better to be noble in your suffering than disruptive in your own defense.
