Yep, the hammer has to go through a lot of "stuff" before it gets to the cap. At that point, it's supposed to have the ability to hit the cap with enough force to initiate ignition!! I've settled on a 4 lb. hammer draw as the min. for competition revolvers, Walkers/Dragoons can get away with mid 3lb. hammer draws because of the extra inertia in the larger hammer!!

So, if you get rid of all the "stuff" (my job) you can get 100% ignition with easily manageable hammer draws!! So, there ya go . . . .
