Broken hammer spring

Well I broke the spring while seating the end cap after doing general maintenance.
The question is after market or back to factory spring?

Wow, I never break mine down that far. I use synthetic safe blast free on the grip frame, then oil it up.

too bad that happened, but not "general maintenance". Nothing wrong with the factory spring and they might send it to you free.

I got a factory replacement assy. from sccy.
After I installed the hammer and spring the trigger would not break at all.
It seemed like the bar won't pull the hammer back far enough.
Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Did the assembly come assembled? If not did you put the spring in backwards? Or did you put it in the wrong slot in the hammer?

The open part of the new spring assy. was facing to the rear.

I believe you have the spring in backwards. Both open ends should face the front.

Interesting, I may have flipped the more open end of the spring upside down....
The more closed should be @ the hammer pin.
