    I recently purchased a Steyr GB and about once per magazine (or about half the time I shoot with the hammer down/decocked in double action) I'll get a light primer strike. Is there anything I can do to fix this or does my gun just need new hammer springs? I assume actual GB hammer springs are unobtainium so is there anywhere I can get equivalent springs that will work?

    The light strikes happen with multiple types of new, factory ammo that works fine in other guns so I'm fairly certain it's not an ammo issue.

    I would start with a very good and thorough cleaning before attempting to replace any parts.
    While we were cleaning it I would inspect the firing pin they have been known to chip or have where.

    That's a good idea. I was hoping to not have to do a full disassembly but I guess I'd have to do it either way to change the springs so I might as well get it nice and clean and get familiar with how all the little bits work.
