PasoGunner Posted June 7, 2015 Report Share Posted June 7, 2015 (edited) Good morning gentleman, I’m hoping someone can shed some light on my 1st issue with my new LR308 Build. I have quite a dilemma on my hands and I'm just wondering if someone could help me out please. I went to check headspace on my brand new Faxon Firearms .308 Fluted Stainless Steel in Black QPQ coating barrel with my AIM surplus (Faxon recommends these. They use same BCG in test rifles) Nitride BCG. I took out the extractor I also took out the ejector. I reassembled it and the GO gauge worked perfect. Nice and smooth lockup. . Problem is, is that the NOGO gauge also closed just like the GO gauge. The BCG was flush at back of upper with the GO gauge and NOGO gauge! I also watched the bolt engage the barrel extension lugs. It locks up perfect!! Now I do not have a FIELD gauge, but I'm wondering what you guys would do next. Would you buy the fuel gauge and check it out that way, or would you send it back to the manufacturer? Thanks for all your help I really appreciate it as always. Also just to check I put the extractor back in the BCG. The Forster Headspace Gauges have the notch for the extractor. I did NOT slam the bolt onto the gauges. I know RougeNathan at Faxon Firearms will see this thread. If anyone needs a full spec sheet just let me know. I am Officially Stumped! Thanks for all your help as Always!!
