I’ve bobbed 15-20 hammers on j frames, Taurus 605/905 revolvers and SP101s without any issues of performance. You’re not removing enough material for it to greatly affect performance. People hurt performance much more by trying to lighten trigger pull weight than just about any other modification to a revolver.

As some have stated, I have bobbed all of my revolvers hammers with the exception of my Python. I have had zero failures due to bobbing hammers. When I bobbed the hammer on my S&W model 10 snubby the weight of the material removed from the hammer weighed 2.9 grains. If 2,9 grains is going to cause a misfire then I will say the gun in question has some VERY MAJOR issues. I have 2 Ruger GP-100's and 1 of them is the match champion bobbed and the lightest spring kits you can install fro Wolf Springs and both guns will light off factory ammo as well as my reloads with trigger pulls of 7.5lbs.

I have done many S&Ws, Js-Ks & 2 Ns. All older models with FPS mounted on hammer. Never had any trouble with any of them.
