They are great guns. I have one that I have put several thousand rounds through. Now there are a couple of things you need to look at and correct if not done. One remove the bolt carrier and make sure the cap screws are staked properly.
Here is what a properly carrier staking job looks like.
Also you may need to stake the castle nut to prevent it from backing off and allowing the shoulder stock tube assembly to back off during recoil.
Here is an example of what it should look like when done properly. This one is hanging on a set of hooks for the picture.
The only thing needed for evil to exist is for good men to stand by and do nothing!!!
Thanks, Tex. I just took a quick look and those things seem fine.
secure that charging handle soldier! Lol
There is something about firing 4,200 thirty millimeter rounds/min that makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside.
Congrats... welcome to the club.
Pick up hints and info over time. Here's a couple: Download your 30-round mags to 28; they won't seat on a close bolt with 30 rounds in 'em!
Don't go nuts cleaning the action, and no need to run anything down the gas tube routinely.
Run the bolt wet! These guns like lube.
A bore snake is a great friend!
