That makes a lot of sense, backing the knob out allows more time for sear to rise up before the ram let's the cocking rod and hammer back forward. Thanks all

The most overlooked issue with cocking problems is the cocking rod adjustment, and it sounds like that may be your issue.
Everytime I've exhausted the hammer lug adjustment and am starting to think I have a worn out sear, the solution is just simply a cocking rod adjustment (usually backing it out a turn or two).
