  The pin for your sear is 1/16" too high and 1/32" too far to the left~ somewhere in that area, only measuring by eye.  Notice how yours is around 60% from the bottom of the hammer, and the original is closer to 25% from the bottom.

  Paraquat, I don't believe the hammer needs a guide rail, as it appears to be the same cross section 360 degrees around.

  Also, the safety in the original designs looks like it would bend and become trapped from the impact of the hammer dropping.   It bothers me.

I was imagining the slot acting like a bowling ball in a gutter. Just based on the proportions drawn.

nice catch, i think youre right, i will measure the hole location again. I think the sear is still wrong though, it just doesn't look like whats in the blue prints.
i was planning on 3d printing (tomorrow if all goes well) the design and then changing a few things to hopefully make it work, the safety being one of them. i was thinking i would move it right up under the hammer when in the cocked position so it won't gain a whole lot of inertia if released and hopefully wouldn't break the pin. well see.
the biggest problem though is getting enough energy to fire the cartridge from such small springs. i was thinking of either making the hammer and firing pin from a lighter material to increase velocity or changing their design to weigh less. but for the first go around im going to go as close to the plans as i can get. any ideas you have, send them along, ill post pictures when i make progress

based on your suggestion i checked it out and that hole is in the correct place. sure does look different though. i think it may be an optical illusion from the hammer being in the wrong place

When you 3-D print it, I would make it incapable of chambering an actual round, and 3-D print some interlocking dummy rounds you can test with.

Form 1s are running many months @ the moment, and BATFE and local cops have been known to do nefarious things to get a conviction.

so our 3d printer sucks. im playing with the fill levels but for the time being im getting a lot of parts that are too brittle to come off the printing base without crushing

  For having grown up playing inside my fathers plastic injection shop. You would think I remembered at least something about plastic..  Check if the temperature is too high for the plastic you're using, typically makes things brittle.  having a base sounds like the heat kind. not the UV kind, or the laser kind of 3dprinter

We replaced the extruder and hopefully that will fix it, but i had to leave. hopefully that will fix it. Its set at 215c. will update soon.
