The AR-15 disconnector, as are all of our Keepshooting.com house brand spare and replacement parts for the AR-15 platform, is a brand new part produced in a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that holds several foreign military contracts. As such, all parts are compatible with and interchangeable in any MIL-SPEC AR-15.
Located within the lower receiver adjacent the trigger, the AR-15 disconnector is a vital component to the safe and proper function of the rifle, as it plays a crucial role in preventing hammer follow. After a trigger pull and subsequent discharge, the hammer is reset as the bolt carrier group moves rearward. To prevent the hammer from riding the bolt carrier group forward as it moves into battery, the disconnector holds the hammer back until the trigger is also reset and capable of keeping the hammer back itself. Of course, this is only necessary if the trigger is held to the rear after the firing sequence has been completed. The disconnector is secured inside the lower receiver via the trigger pin.
Spare and replacement parts are an important consideration when it comes to firearms. Like any machine, firearms rely on a series of parts to function properly – especially those components that impact the firing sequence. In general, if a part breaks or fails, a repair or replacement becomes immediately necessary – not only to keep a firearm functioning properly but also to ensure the safety of yourself and those around you.
It is also important to consider availability when discussing spare and replacement parts.
