I just recieved a trigger that has one of the legs, that stick out the rear of the trigger, just
past the area for the disconnecter spring is missing. It only has one leg back there and it
looks to be made that way, no signs of it being cut off. IS THIS an M-16 trigger or is it OK
to use in a AR build? Any help is appreciated.

Well, which trigger do you have?



WIZZO

The COLT large pin match triggers are like that too...

I guess I got a M-16 trigger. It is like the M-16 trigger in Wizzo's pic, but one leg is not
on it. That's what I get for buying something you can't see, I needed a LPK and now I need
a disconnect, disconnect spring, magazine catch spring, and trigger. I'm not too keen on
the trigger and hammer pins. Oh, and Shootersden, the standard size pins fit this trigger,
so I don't think it's a Colt large pin, Thanks guys.

Like this?

Yes Sir, that is the one. Is it OK to use or is it M-16 part ?

I wouldnt lose hope just yet... Look at what Spooge5150 posted... That diagram shows what you have described and it looksa to be AR15

ETA, If I didnt have dial-up, I might of beat you

Looks like your good to go

That's great, Thanks for the input to all. Saves me buying a trigger and I think I can force
myself into using the pins. Do any of you have any idea why the disconnector would have
been ground on at the front, where it meets the flat spot on the trigger. If the disconnector
is usable then all I will need is a couple of springs.

The front? Or do you mean the tail? If its the back "tail" (closest to the spring notch)... That's the full auto part ground off... That is normal for an AR15 disconnect and is perfectly legal to use with your build...

No, this is on the front, it doesn't look like the tail has been touched at all. In Spooge5150's
pic, where the part#4 is pointing, the flat on the bottom of the nose has been ground on. The
only thing I can see is it allows the disconnector to rock a tad bit farther to the front, I have
never seen one ground on in that spot.

That part was messed with and is not normal for a new disconnect... Someone adjusted it because it was double firing... Stay safe, throw it away and buy a new one... They are inexpensive so dont worry about the cost...

Will do, Thank you, now I think all I will actually need is a disconnector and a mag catch
spring. I'm pretty sure I just found a spare disconnector spring. Thanks again for your
time and effort.
