    Put a piece of masking tape over the fired primer, pull the trigger, see if the tape gets punctured.

    So I have a AR10 that I replaced a Timney 4lb ar10 trigger and “high mass” hammer with an AR15 3lb trigger with a the standard or low mass hammer. I am pretty sure the new trigger will detonate a civilian LR primer but not sure about mill spec primers because the primer cups are thicker. I will test it in the morning.

    Thanks for all the ideas.
