Default M63 single action issue

Just picked up a used one that is less than a year old. When dry firing it single action (with wall anchors) it was difficult to get the hammer to catch on the sear. Not good because when it didn't catch it would spring forward. Probably got it used because of ADs. Took the side plate off, put in a lighter return spring, checked all that I know about (I'm not a Smith, just an old mechanic) and all seemed good. Put it back together and the issue remained. Turned out that the hammer on full cock was hitting the stock rubber grip. Shaved a bit over 1/32" off the grip and all is good. Is this a great hobby or what?
