    Ok so I built an OLL AR-15. Mega Lower, Stag upper.

    Brought it to the range for the first time, loaded one cartridge, fired and opereated fine. Loaded about 5-7, pull the trigger and it went full auto on me.

    What could be causing this?

    Was the full auto with you holding the trigger down or one pull and release?

    I imagine I left of the trigger, though it happened pretty quickly and I don't remember exactly what happened.

    well either your lower is out of spec or your disconnector broke

    not necessarily, the lower fcg holes can be out of spec.

    check the disconnector

    pivot the upper forward, and check the function of the disconnector.
    while doing any of this, make sure you never let the hammer freely release.
    with the hammer up, hold back the trigger, and push the hammer as far down as it will go
    keep the trigger held back, ease back the pressure on the hammer and see how far the hammer will go.
    if the hammer will not hold back at all, then it is the disconnector.
    if the hammer does stay back, keep holding the hammer, and let go of the trigger
    now ease back the pressure on the hammer and see how far the hammer will go

    that will help at least.

    again: if his lower holes are not in the right spot the disconnector cannot work properly.

    I left it out, it is in now. I'll post pics later to make sure it looks alright to everyone.
