Angry Contender Hammer Broke

Contender G2 with rifle barrel in 221 fireball.
Bought about a year ago.
After around 300 rounds, the hammer spur broke off.

TC fixed it for free, just cost me shipping to them.

But they attached a note saying that use of a hammer extension (which I needed for the scope) will cause the spur to break, and implied I should not use one.

#1 - nothing much I can do about the poor quality (IMHO) of the hammer, and TC should be aware hammer extensions may be used and design accordingly.

#2 - I'm using a weaver mount and high extension rings, I don't think I can go any higher, but I need about 1/8" more clearance to **** the hammer comfortably without the extension. I need extension rings to get the scope right. I could find another scope with a smaller eyepiece, perhaps one that would work with regular (hi or extra-hi) rings.

Has anybody had this problem and how did you solve it?
