AR trigger

First foray into building one of these --Poly 80 lower--mil-spec trigger --installed the trigger group as per instructions---cocks ok wont reset properly---if I push down on back of trigger bar wit a punch it will click and reset and release ok when trigger is pulled -but when I cock it again it sticks-ie the hook on the hammer to the disconnector---I have taken apart and reassembled and futzed around with it but no fun so far-I have watched some videos--any tips THANX

I suggest checking the trigger pocket depth. If it is not milled deep enough, the trigger will not reset.

Some issues are due to the shape of the disconnector. I saw a video where swapping one out worked. For me I had an issue with hammer follow. I had another disconnector and swapped out the first one and the hammer follow stopped. That's just one issue; not sure if it would help yours but good to know.

I just finished two. a JMT and a Poly80. It was fun. Def learned some things. The pocket depth was the first thing that bit me in the butt. Sounds like you got it sorted.
