If yes, there is chance that the trigger's overtravel set screw has migrated on it's own, preventing you from actually pulling the trigger as far as it needs to be pulled, which allows for the hammer to fall but not enough to get past the half-cock notch. To further complicate this, Springfield Armory 1911 pistols (ummm... some, many or maybe all?) have an added "feature" of an internal lock, a non-standard item that is contained in the mainspring housing.
I'm not intimately familiar with the design and execution of this widget but it is supposed to hinder the hammer strut in some manner... I would be looking at that lock also, though I'm not sure how that could cause this particular issue.
