you grind .015" off and the
round edge disappears.The profile is gone and you are left with the remains of
the flat part.prints,the half cock hook is shaped like an inverted
dipper,and the handle is round(.
I'll try again from a different direction.

Why would I do anything to the half-cock? It has nothing to do with the sear and hammer hook relationship. There's no reason to alter the half cock notch.

You are equalizing the hooks' length .to .025" and I take that to mean bothhooks have the same distance to the body.
Right. One was longer than the other, so I laid a feeler gauge under the hooks and made them both the same length by cutting the tips flush with the gauge.
