    Default AR15 Trigger hammer broke?????

    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!

    Ok You have a picture of a Hammer with spring...the thing to the left, a disconector, the thing above everything else in the middle, and a trigger with spring, the thing in the center at the bottom, and a trigger pin...the round pin looking thing in the bottom center left.. Now what do you think is broke? The trigger pin sits in the center of the lower receiver, the hammer pin sits in the front of the lower receiver cut out, and is slightly above the trigger pin.

    I have seen a couple pins break over the years, but it isn't very common.

    I'm confused, you said the hammer was broken at "the angle," the pic you posted leads me to believe the trigger is broken, not the hammer.

    I'm also curious to find out what the "home" method of lightening the trigger pull was.

    BTW I know the guy who made that AR! His girl friend is Japanese and she just loves that thing with Hello Kitty...it was the only way to get her to the range! He lives in SoCal and is a very active 3-gunner.
