I can't be sure, but I suspect the hammer was on the soft side, or work on it cut though case hardening. In any case, normal firing causes the hammer to drop on the sear very quickly, and the sear cut into the hammer notch, leaving a groove that increased the trigger pull. If that is the case, examination of the hammer notch under magnification may bear it out.
