My roomate needs to find a gunsmith to fix his SAR-1. We're in Huntington Beach, so anything in OC would be better but not mandatory. On another note, I broke my Bushmaster last time out (within the first 100 rounds!!! [>Q] ) and will probably take it to Evan's in Orange unless anyone has a better option. Evan won't work on Commie Rifles so my roomate is SOL. Thanks,

How'd you break your Bushmaster? That sounds kinda painful. How long did you have to stay in the emergency room?

No emergency room, I just put my Bushy in a sling and took it home. The problem is the trigger seems to be locked and fails to release the hammer. I can make the hammer function by releasing it with a small screwdriver which makes it move forward a bit. Then when I pull the trigger it releases normally.

BB - I thought about doing that, but the paperwork crap and the possibility of FedEx losing my lower makes it not worth saving the cash to me.

Ummm... I think my joke went over you guys' heads. "bush-master"... you know? you know?

"I put my Bushy in a sling" = G String. . .

Sounds like your disconnector isn't. Try disassembling trigger group, clean, reassemble, and CLP it. You might have something stuck in there. From the sound of your description it sounds like the disconnector continues to hang onto the hammer, and fiddling with the screwdriver makes it let go, whereby the hammer rotates forward and the sear on the front of the trigger catches it, thus enabling it to be fired normally.

You wouldn't happen to have any links to pictures of the trigger group or instructions on how to disassemble it would you? I've never taken down that part of my rifle before.

Yeah, let us know how it goes. Don't forget, the hammer spring legs go on *top* of the trigger pin! I am insecure and need to know if I am right. [rolleyes]

When I worked in the city of Orange I was half a block from Evan's. He has done good work on my AR-15's. I now go to Gruning Precision (909-689-6692) by the Riverside Airport. Does excellent work. He is also a Journeyman Machinist who has done tool and die and jig and fixture work. I have one of my four AR-15's with him now.

Jim's a good guy and does great work. He had a guy working for him a couple years ago who opened a shop (Blade&Barrel, I think) right next door to Gruning Precision. Do not take your stuff to him unless you want to wait forever then get lied to. ShortyAK, There's a new 'smith who opened up across from Jim and his shop is called Danforth Gunsmithing. I've never been in his shop, but I could check to see if he'll work on a SAR1 if you'd like.

ShortyAK, don't forget to let us know how your AR turns out (btt).
