You need an un-notched AR15 hammer (basically a M16 hammer with the sear tail bobbed off). A full auto 9mm uses a regular M16 hammer. If you use a notched AR15 hammer in a semi auto 9mm it can get hung up on the hammers notch. The newest style AR hammers done have this notch because many AR15 companies are using 'enhanced' carriers that are light M16 carriers and a fully shrouded on the front end.
