A quick test.

Cock the hammer and apply light upward pressure on the underside of the grip safety tang. Pull the trigger. If the hammer falls, you have a grip safety problem. If it doesn't, you have a spring problem.

You can get the finger of the spring that is supposed to operate the grip safety over the grip safety instead of under.

Um...Yer gonna hafta 'splain that one.

You can get the left leg under the sear, and have the hammer fail to cock...but the right leg over the grip safety? That'd be a trick.
If your front porch collapses and kills more than three dogs...You just might be a redneck
