I'm looking at customizing and am NOT going to add the beavertial because of it's just not me. But, any opinions on the spur hammer vs ring hammer?

Hello. It depends on a couple of things:

1.) Does the factory hammer bite you?

2.) Which style hammer do you like best?

I have HPs set up both ways, but with the "commander hammer," I use the C & S version rather than the Browning factory version as the former is smaller and does not bite me.

Any spur hammered HP I own has the hammer bobbed at the second lateral serration, is shaped to suit me, and then refinished. This solves the "bite" problem as well.

If it's just a matter of esthetics, it makes no real difference; just go with the one you like.

Best.
