Default Saiga 223/5.56 hammer problems

I recently bought a Saiga in 223 which worked flawlessly for several months. Even though its an AK style I clean my firearms religiously, after a few months my rifle would fire a round, eject, and chamber a round perfectly, however....... The hammer would get stuck down and while trying to "pull" the trigger nothing would happen. When I removed the receiver cover and fired the weapon I noticed the hammer set down but locked and would not release without a very minor touch. Everything functions just as should in the proper chain of events except for the hammer locking down, any ideas?

Please stop by the "Introductions" section.

We also have a section where some gunsmiths hang out.
