Chaser Posted December 10, 2014 Report Share Posted December 10, 2014 I am trying to track an issue. At this time, I've finally assembled the structural pieces of my 308 project which consists of a Mega Arms 308, DPMS bolt carrier, JP Rifles barrel assembly, and the DPMS buffer. The problem is that when I attempt to rack the charging handle it is exceptionally difficult....like two hands difficult. The bolt never sticks back, as I'm not even 100% sure it's back far enough to trigger the mag catch solidly. If I release the charging handle, the whole thing slams forward. Seats properly....but as I cycle it, I can distinctly smell "hot metal". I can't locate any wear on either the BCG, charging handle, or the receiver. Charging handle is also Mega Arms. All pieces cycle appropriately, and it's gotten slightly better with repeated applications of CLP, but this just seems abnormal. Anyone had similar experiences or recommendations on what to change? My gut feeling is that it's an interaction between the bolt carrier and the charging handle....but I'm not sure if anyone can help with recommendations on another....I don't want to just keep buying BCGs to try to "get lucky". v/r, Jon Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
