    Yes, an occasional occurance. Your trigger spring has slipped out from it's groove in the bottom of the trigger bar.

    does the hammer draw back, but not far enough for it to fall?

    If so look at the pin behind the trigger.  If this pin drifts out, it will cause the above.  given the pin is in an ackward position, but it has been possible for some to push it back in.

    If you look through the FAQ/VIP there is a past post with this link
