Default disconnect trouble

first and formost, hello to everyone,i'm new to this forum and lucky to have found it. i'm doing my first build,but i'm having trouble with the disconnect lining up with the pin hole in the trigger itself. the problem seems to be the disconnect spring. i triple checked to make sure i'm using the right one,it's tapered right? anyway it wont let the disconnect itself seat far enough into the trigger. the taper on the spring wont let it go down far enough. am i doing something wrong here?i cant even get the pin to go thru the two of them outside the reciever let aloan in it. I have a fair amount of machinist background but i'm not a professional. i dont know enough about gunsmithing yet to try altering parts,especially trigger parts. please help!

Are you sure you are using a semi-auto disconnector? A full auto part will not fit in a semi trigger. Take the parts and assemble them outside of the receiver. See if there is interference.

Welcome.

Oh, and a full auto disconnector will not make it full auto.

You can go to the Busmaster web site, too make sure the parts are correct.
Make sure, you have all semi-auto parts for your AR. If you have just one Full-Auto part in your AR, I've read, it will be considered a Full-Auto by the ATF, and you can be in big trouble. I read this in the Bushmaster Catalog.
I hope this helps you.

And Welcome.

No, I checked the parts, there all semi auto, I have past mil. Exp. And I'm familiar with the class 3 parts. However I was not an armorour. I'm gonna have to let my gunsmith look at it Saturday and see what he says. I'll keep you all posted as to what the problem is. I'm guessing it's something I'm over looking and not a manufacture problem.
