If you need less than a carbine buffer on a 5.56 you have other issues . I thinking maybe your trigger group was installed dry causing enough friction to slow up the hammer and cause light strikes .

Maybe it's just me. I always use H2 or Spike's ST2 on all my rifles.

Correct lubrication is important even in ak47. Your trigger and hammer springs should have a tiny spot of gun grease on each coil section the firing pin dry to start. Lube especially 30w non detergent motor oil will find its way in there just lubing the carrier.

I would go ask what trigger setup they used to build the rifle.

I've had this occur before. Some BCGs are shipped out with what appears to be almost packing/storage type grease on the firing pin.

I did notice a strong smell of shipping grease....
I cleaned the pin after my last shooting (but not before).

I will repeat and also wipe the pin before my next shoot

FWIW I have run JP lighter springs in all of mine, but use reg GI hammers/LPK. Never a problem.

I have been using the same quart of Mobile since I bought my AR. I haven't had any lube related issues yet. I have barely put a dent in that quart of oil. It will last a long time. I took some out and put it in a old army oil bottle for my range bag so I wouldn't have to lug around the quart bottle.

Have you considered there's something wrong with the hammer spring?

I had a suspicon that it might be a light spring kit or something..
The trigger group certainly looks very nicely made
