Response to Anyone ever drill and tap a Crosman hammer ?

hammers are easy to drill for threaded pins
just grind a off the case hardening and the steel underneath is as soft as butter so drill and tap as normal but watch out when the drill and tap gets to the spring bore as that'll still be case hardened
if you're fitting an adjustable striker use a carbide burr to remove the hardened surface and then drill and tap as normal in your lathe
