    Default Hammer Steel

    I'm building a few 1911 pistols for Precision Competition and want to make the hammer. I have quite a few commercial hammers but don't like them. What will be the best steel I can use?

    S7 tool steel is a good candidate of the common alloy steels. It is formulated to resist shock and is pretty easy to heat treat : Tool Steel | S7 Shock Resisting Tool Steel | S7 Steel
