Care must be taken not to reduce the hammer too much that misfires occur.

One way is to replace the internal springs (it probably needs that anyways).

There should be reduced power springs available. I do not encourage cutting springs.

Do not cut springs. There are different spring tensions that you can purchase for a small amount.

ya a two pound spring is available through Midway USA or Brownells as well as a number of other on line gun parts vendors.
