I bought a 1960 python from an 89 year old ex highway patrolman who was also a shooting instructor who put this spurless hammer on the gun for some reason. I had the original hammer put on fyi. Anyone ever seen this before, is it a factory part? Why do this? I might be interested in selling it fyi. Thanks uploadfromtaptalk1398638120888.jpg uploadfromtaptalk1398638135748.jpg

I don't think that's a factory hammerless conversion. Looks like a owner conversion.

Since a police or combat type revolver are usually shot double action in almost any type of combat Match, the hammer spur is superfluous.
Some shooters removed the spur to lighten the hammer for a faster lock time, and people who carried revolvers often did so to prevent getting the spur caught in clothing.
Famed Border Patrolman Bill Jordon had the spurs removed from his Model 19 revolvers.
