    Looks like it could be a part rejected and marked by an assembler that was used regardless.

    Usually there is a spot of white paint on the front lower part of the hammer on new rifles that wears off quickly. Looks like who ever applied the "spot" was a little aggressive.

    Why the white spot is applied I don't know, but I have seen it on S&W AR10's, 15's and 15-22's when the MIM parts are installed.

    Maybe contact Customer Service and ask them? It would be interesting to know.

    S&W responded:

    " Some parts may be marked in the manufacturing process. There is no significance to the white paint. "

    Enlightening, eh?

    Did you send them picture of it? That is not a "spot" or a "mark"

    Many car parts are marked with a spot or a grease pen what is on that hammer is excessive

    I know what I would do. I have had several SW ARs and nothing like that That would annoy and worry me.

    I know they will not send you a new hammer or anything trigger related, I would have them pick it up

    It's only a short-term worry. I've got a nice, shiny Timney AR10 4 pound trigger back on order, and it includes a replacement hammer, probably "unpainted"!
