9mm AR15 Trigger
The 9mm AR15 Trigger is easily where the most confusion lies with the 9mm AR platform. My own research was met with a lot of “Should work” , “Most 2-Stage” and similar vague answers. One of the problems is most AR15 TRIGGER manufacturers have not tested their triggers in 9mm AR15 rifles. The other problem is there are two different kinds of 9mm AR15 BOLT CARRIERS, ramped and un-ramped. We will get into specifics below.

Note 2: This page is a discussion of AR15 HAMMERS and AR15 TRIGGERS in 9mm AR applications. The conversation gets more complex when a .223 5.56 AR15 UPPER RECEIVER and a 9mm AR15 UPPER RECEIVER will share a common LOWER RECEIVER. That’s a topic for a different day and page.
