I was finally able to take my sub 2k to the range today. I put 250 - 300 rounds down range. I had about 7 failure to eject, shortly after I got dead trigger. It will not reset if I press foward on the trigger or rack the bolt. I was shooting Winchester 124 grain fmj 9mm NATO, mostly cuz it was on sale. Originally thinking the FTE was just ammo related, and I could bring a small variety of grains and brands next time for comparison.
It could be the gun because it’s new, ammo related, me incorrectly installing something, or a part I put in. I’ll have to crack it open and take a look later tonight.
For reference I’ve installed the follow mcarbo parts: the flat trigger kit, trigger bar (slightly sanded), muzzle break, extended mag release, peep sights, recoilless charging handle, red lifesaver buffer, polished feed ramp, sleeve, trigger guard, screw kit.
I’ve messed with it a bit, so it might be my goof up. My first thought is FTE is ammo related and dead trigger is trigger bar related. Over all it was a blast to shoot and even with 124 grain, the recoil isn’t bad at all. I’d imagine lighter rounds kicking like a 22. Being able to transition between steel targets with the peep sight was nice!
I have a few things to do tonight before I can take it apart and really look at it. Is there anything specific I should be looking for??
