Trigger is being held to the rear and hammer is following, so it's not trigger bounce. Middle leg of sear spring probably not at fault. Inspect sear and hammer hooks for damage or tampering.

The easiest way I've found is to measure the slide to find the center, then place a witness mark (dot of white paint) at that point, where it can be seen while the slide is installed in the sight...
