If the lower portion of the spring breaks, it would be difficult to see without a detail strip.
Even with a broken trigger spring, the t-bar will randomly catch the firing pin and cock it, but it will be far from 100%.

Hey...Tactical Ted: Unless you have the ability to call in JDAM strikes from Predator drones, I really don't see why you insist on having 4 FEET of tactical rails on your freakin' AR-15.

Most likely, you put it back together wrong. You could have have the bar on the outside of the connector and therefore, it was too low to catch the firing pin.
... seems to go forward but grungingly so.
You shouldn't be in a gunfight without test firing the gun to begin with...making sure that the gun you go into the gunfight works 100%...
If I had been in gun fight this malfunction could have been fatal.

Make sure your trigger spring is installed as above, NOT upside down. You will have problems similar to what you describe if it's not installed correctly.
