Dropped in a new trigger, fired about 30 rounds everything is fine again. I can't fine any wear or burrs on the old one, I think I will call cmmg techs before I toss it and see if they think a new set of springs will salvage it, it wasn't the most expensive but it wasn't cheap either.

Talked cmmg tech support,said e-mail him a picture of the trigger with my mailing address so they could look at it, said they don't sale them anymore but he had a few left for warranty purposes, so hopefully I will be getting a replacement in the mail

Thanks for the update. Sounds like cmmg is trying to make it right, good on them.

I have seen this before on a carbine gas piston gun. It was short stroking just enough to eject a case and pick up a new round but the lite weight hammer carry enough energy to engage the disconnect.
As well as the disconnect being out of spec and not matching the hammer.

The new trigger works fine, cmmg no longer makes any ar15 piston driven, wasnt enough demand, so parts may be hard to come by,probably look at coverting over to gas system later on
