    Default Charter Arms AR-7

    I have a Charter Arms AR-7 rifle with a broken firing pin. I have never fired this rifle because the pin was broken when I purchased it. I have ordered a new pin from Henry Arms. I have read some information about these rifles jamming a lot. Some people say to smooth both sides of the firing pin which allows it to slide in the bolt and other say to chamfer the breech end of the barrel. Please give me your advice on these procedures. Also I read about a replacement part for these rifles which is supposed to eliminate jamming. It is called a Trigger/disconnector assembly for the AR-7 survival rifle. It is described as a method for retrofitting a rifle having an integral trigger/disconnector. The method comprises the steps of: removing the integral trigger/disconnector; and installing an assembly comprising a spring-loaded disconnector and a trigger in place of the integral trigger/disconnector. The spring loaded disconnector is able to move to the rear when contacted by the hammer to allow the hammer to pass, and then quickly return to its forward position so as to capture the hammer. I cannot find a place to purchase this replacement part. I am a new member and hope someone can help.:4: Thanks

    You say you have never fired your AR7. That being the fact, I don't think I'd worry too much about it jamming until it actually started to jam excessively.

    Life is too short to spend time worrying about possible problems.

    Thanks. In case I need it in the future what do you know about the replacement part?

    Either or both of these procedures should be relatively easy and inexpensive fixes to your, as of yet, nonexistent jamming problem. Personally, I would do absolutely nothing to your gun until it exhibited jamming problems.

    Replaced firing pin on the AR-7 and the rifle shoots great. No jams so far. It's more accurate than I would have thought it would be. Trigger pull is heavy and I can feel it snap back into place after each round is fired. Thanks
