If the hammer is catching the firing pin collar on the foward stroke, how can this be cured?

File a couple thousands off the edge of the hammer where it is snagging (flatten the corner) or replace the hammer with a M16 hammer that has the auto sear hook removed...

Use an AR-15 firing pin with an AR-15 or unenhanced carrier, and an M-16 FP with an M-16 or enhanced carrier. The AR FP has a smaller collar than the M-16.

If you get a new AR15 firing pin all are not the same. The only company I know selling one with the correct small diameter is Bushmaster. Some of the other AR15 pins out are not as big as a 16 pin but not as small as needed.

It is possible to take to much off the top of a hammmer trying to get it not to catch the firing pin. If too much is removed the carrier will not push the hammer down far enough to catch the disconnector like it should.

+1

If you try to modify the hammer, remove very small portions until it resolves the problem... File a little then check to see if the problem is corrected and if its not repeat until its corrected... If you remove to much, the worst you can do is ruin the hammer... Its an easy and inexpensive thing to replace though...

What brand of AR-15 is the lower, upper, lower parts kit and bolt carrier group?
