View Full Version : Question in Lower build

03-12-2007, 9:18 AM
OK I just assembled my OLL and I noted something interesting.
When testing the hammer with no upper on the lower.
I hold the trigger back and the hammer goes forward (yes I hold it with my thumb so it dont slam on to the receiver/Bolt hold open thingie).
NOW if I keep holding down the trigger and then pull back the hammer it locks in place. OK so far.
But when I release the trigger..the hammer clicks up. As in it pops up a little bit. Is this normal?

That is the trigger reseting. When shooting I usually hold the trigger back and let it go till i feel/hear that click. It makes for a faster reset, especially on a two stage trigger. The second stage would be the click.

Yes, when the hammer comes back the disconnector catches the hammer, and when you release the trigger the disconnector releases the hammer and the trigger catches it.
