My question is which end of the trigger and hammer pin goes in first and from which side of the receiver? I see 2 grooves on each pin, do they line up with something.

i usually install the notched side first through the mag release side but it doesnt matter.


the hammer spring legs rest on the trigger pin slots to keep them from walking, the hammer's j-spring holds the hammer pin in.

Got it, thanks alot!
Now I cannot move the safety selector unless the hammer is cocked. Is this normal?

sounds like your first AR altogether. Most people know the hammer has to be down for the safety to be engaged.

So you bumped this 45 day old topic to basically call me a dumbass? I'm sorry I'm not as experienced as you and everyone else. Furthermore, I'm sorry I posted such a dumb question that required you to waste your time adding such a worthless coment.

I'm sorry to bring up the fact that you ought to know how the safety works before you decide to remove it to install a new trigger.

Most people figure out that the safety won't engage unless the hammer is cocked. It's fine if you didn't know but you sure ought to before trying to install a new trigger system.

It's like asking us if the barrel nut has to be tight when you are telling us you are installing a new barrel.

ETA: I'm not criticizing you for simply not knowing, I'm criticizing you for taking a pretty big step with your trigger and not knowing basic safety function.

Actually, "Hammer down" is the opposite of being cocked. If the hammer's down, the safety can NOT be engaged.

Yeah, but the bonus was showing that you have no business fucking with your fire control parts.

We all have to start somewhere but starting at the beginning is the best place- definitely understanding the safety is an important step to even owning one...
