I scoured this forum for all the best advice on correct parts for a reliable 308 AR. I was hoping my first post would be a thank you for helping with my success. Nope! It won’t cycle.
I am pretty sure the gas port is too small and the rifle is under gassed. Before I drill out the gas port I am requesting a review of my build for any errors.
I slowly went trough 20 rounds of Federal Match 175 (expensive 😖). Rounds barely dribble out and I had a few stove pipes. The gas block is seated correctly and I can’t detect any issues with alignment.
