    I will ask for pix after I get off work today and post it. I dont know if this is a common problem or not but I have seen 2 cases of hammer broke right at the hook angle. I was wondering if that caused by dry fire.


    well found this pix, thought want to share, AR15 commiefornia legal

    What two examples are you aware of (brand and factory lower or stripped and LPK)?

    I've not heard any issues with dry-firing an AR.

    OK - what was the brand of AR that this happened in (for each of the two cases you heard of)?

    Were these builds or factory-built ARs?

    the lpk was ordered from tapco back then. he sold me his bushmaster 2stg trigger and replaced with tapco trigger group. he read somewhere about DIY lighter/reduce trigger pull and thought try it out with tapco trigger kit and it broke.

    Umm, do you mean the "half moon" of metal missing off the TRIGGER?? That is what is outlined in red! If that is what you are talking about...IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE THAT. It allows the hammer spring to engage the notch cut into the trigger pin so it doesn't walk out of the receiver!

    If you are thinking that the back of the hammer has been broken IT ISN'T see below.

    BTW that is a 9MM lower parts kit!
