A connector assembly for a coaxial cable having an outer conductor and an inner conductor includes a center conductor. A flaring ring and a clamping member are disposed adjacent to each other, and the outer conductor of the coaxial cable is engaged between the back end of the ring and the end of the clamping member. A body member holds the flaring ring and the clamping member together with the outer conductor of the cable located therebetween. A coupling nut, secured to the body member and disposed around the center conductor, is used to engage the connector with a mating connector. A conductive insert positioned within the body member provides electrical contact between the flaring ring and a mating connector. The connector assembly further includes a dielectric insulator, disposed between the center conductor and the conductive insert, for centering the center conductor with respect to the conductive insert and for electrically isolating the center conductor from the conductive insert. The clamping member, the body member, and the coupling nut are fabricated from polymeric materials, and the conductive insert is fabricated from an electrically conductive material.
