Well the first link doesn't work for me but from what I could see the auction was ended and it looked like the 'black' aluminum hammer that was before the 'orange' short pull hammer. So to answer your question, they are not the same hammer.

Just to keep the info in the thread accurate, the short pull hammer (orange) has had the hammer shelf (the part of the hammer that catches the hammer sear or rear sear) shortened to lessen the distance that the trigger has to be pulled before release. As the rear sear is pushed back by the rods from the trigger, it releases the hammer. By shorting the hammer shelf, the rods do not have to be pushed by the trigger as far back as normal so this shortens the pull of the trigger.

There was testing done on this and there is a thread about the equipment manufactured to test this hammer.

OK, I watched the video, I get the difference between the orange and black hammers. I guess my question now is there two different outfits making these hammers. One original and one short pull? Or does the same guy make and sell both styles?

Also, that dimple on the hammer face concerns me a little. Has anyone used one of these hammers enough to have done any real endurance testing?

The same guy makes them but this eBay listing looks like someone bought a few sets of the 'regular' batch of hammers and is now reselling them. The only 'authorized' reseller that I know of is mjk1 (Man Kave) on here.

The dimple does not affect anything with the hammer and should not be of concern.

There is another thread from those that have installed and used the hammers extensively in the board.
