debate class was at my house this evening!! how can i tell if a hammer in my rifle is m16 or ar15? i now have my first ar and have had three people tell me 2 two things. twice people have told me it is m16 and one friend told me ar15 i also would like 2 know if it is m16 for some reason, can it stay in the gun? or do i need 2 get rid of it and buy the correct hammer? if it is m16 and i can keep it in my rifle with no troubles will it damage my rifle? thanks much

This shows photos of M16 VS AR15 hammer: http://www.ar15.com/articles/article.html?article=31 First ATF said you can't have an unregistered machinegun. Then they said that some AR15's with M16 parts will fire full-auto. Then they said that every AR15 with any M16 parts is illegal, whether it fires full-auto or not. ATF is insane. You cannot have M16 hammer in AR15. As far as functioning, I don't know whether M16 hammer would damage AR15.
