Citadel Boss Gas Piston

Hi all!
I bought a Citadel boss, as my first ar, is it normal for the gas piston to travel so far after firing?
The bolt also won’t travel back, I stripped and cleaned after purchasing and again after shooting hi loads for the “break in period “


Have you checked the return (recoil) spring. I have found them broken even on a low round count firearm. Also, welcom to the group.

I am going to move your post to the AR thread. I’m sure the guys will be able to give you some guidance.
