Used STI Rangemaster...hammer follow

Like the title says, I snagged a (very) lightly used STI Rangemaster with 3 Ed Brown 9mm magazines...only problem is, when doing the function check:
While holding trigger to the rear and cycling the slide, the hammer drops when slide returns to battery. Iím no kitchen-table gunsmith, but, AFAIK, this is a NoGo!
Iíve spoken with STI RE: an RMA, but I donít know what the previous owner may/may not have done to ďtouch upĒ this pistol.

Take out leaf spring and bend middle leg forward just a hair. It will engage trigger bar more firmly for reset. Again a little goes a long way

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.

Check overtravel screw for proper adjustment (it's been discussed on the gunsmithing forum here a lot).

Inspect disconnector for proper operation.
