The cocking effort on my .357 has dropped from 23 lbs. to 12-15 lbs, depending on the SSG gap....

The Daystate 2-piece "Slingshot" hammer is great for valves that open easily.... Before balanced valves, that meant relatively low powered PCPs.... The SSG works in a similar manner, but instead of stopping most of the hammer mass and letting only a small portion open the valve.... it just stops the spring.... This means that more of the spring energy goes into opening the valve.... plus it's easy to make for the home tinkerer.... Both work to help stop hammer bounce and save air....
