...is going coil bound. Is it an aftermarket spring?

Can't understand what's going on. This looks like the proper cocking position, but see how the end plug behaves?

Is your hammer pin fully inserted into the striker?

does not need to go back that far to cock the gun. Have you tried to assemble it with all the screws in place and cock it, specifically the trigger guard screw that comes up from the bottom to hold the end plug on?

I ordered a couple when I was messing with lightening hammers and I found that the replacement was slightly longer than the stock hammer. If so, it may be long enough to contact the end plug and not let the rifle cock.
