One Eye Joe, JohnnyT, and Bob Reed.
Thank you all for your quick responses. The exposed sear that Bob Reed describes is exactly what I saw when I let the slide slam home. I forgot to mention that I also use an 18.5 lb recoil spring, which would help bounce the sear. I remember the last time out shooting the hammer did fall to half cock one time, I figured it may have been an underpowered round as it did not repeat in the next 100 rounds. I will order a new sear spring , oil the sear and hammer and test.
Thanks again for all of your help!

Hello - I'm glad we were able to help you out.
A new sear spring isn't a bad idea, but be sure to check the searing surfaces while you have it apart and make sure that their not worn. The sear nose is factory ground 90* degrees to the "flat area" on "top" of the sear and make sure the hammer hook isn't rounded and is making full "equal" engagement with the sear.

I installed the new sear spring today and the sear now stays put when the slide slams home. Safety works flawlessly and smoother too. The new factory
sear spring was the same width as the old one but it was a bit shorter, perhaps a bit more tension on the sear? It was also shaped a bit different where it contacts the sear.
