The idea for light hammers was to speed up the lock time and you can also get and maintain lighter trigger jobs on pistols..

as for speed..yes it seems faster, but I have no way to measure one from a stock steel hammer..the speed is to get the hammer to fall faster to allow less time for the sights to move while the shot is being fired.
the two I have..one is set at 1.75 pounds and has been there for two years..the other is set at 2 pounds and so far is good..but I have only had it on this gun for a very short time..

besides all that..it is a good hammer and I have been happy with them..
