I was going to buy from CmP but the part descriptions seem to be lacking and I wasn't sure if it was M1 parts or not. They look like the part visually but they seem to be part number people there over desciptors.
The only trigger/sear or hammers in the CMP surplus parts are for the M1 and are interchangeable with M-14.
Got the Bula trigger and hammer in today and installed them The trigger now pulls,, breaks and resets the way it is supposed to.
There was definitely something wrong with the geometry of both the trigger and hammer that came from Springfield. I am probably not going to mess with them and just toss them in the old scrap metal bin. I really don't think they are repairable. Even so I don't think I could ever trust them again anyhow.
I'm just happy I got my rifle working again and can now concentrate on working up some loads again and just plain fun range time.
The trigger pull is definitely a bit harder and I can also see the front sight move a bit when the hammer falls so I will eventually be upgrading to the Shooting Sight Trigger and hammer.
Once again thanks to all for the help, tips and ideas!
Great news. I think, with a little action, your trigger will smooth out. Dry fire practice has a way of making them work right.
In the 60s we used to glob the innards of the trigger group with tooth paste during dry fire practice. Helped polish the operating surfaces.
