Max,

That was going to be my first suggestion when I heard it. Looks like you got it. My second suggestion was going to be the hammer return spring rubbing on wood in a little groove, having worn through the cloth punching (if it is set up that way anyway).

OK, is so it.
I see the first version more often (rubbing) bridle tape rubs against the backcheck wire
the second, where the hammer spring rubs as a result of wear on the cloth less very seldom there.
the third option: the backcheck wire of one rubs with the neighboring backcheck wire one, if it is displaced or the wippen screw is loose
regards,

Another hard to detect click is when backstop (catcher) is slightly loose in its hole. I remember tearing my hair out (what's left of it) trying to find the source of this click many moons ago. Now it's one of the first places I look in a process of elimination.
