New PSA P10 PROBLEMS FEEDING.

So that we all know, DC Machine makes the majority of barrels that PSA is selling in todays market. Having some of these same problems I phoned a friend and took him my barrel. They checked it and I went over some of the concerns that I have seen here. The barrel was tested, like to the micron, along with checking the gas port. 

Micron=1x10-6 meters or approx .000039 inch
I doubt it. It’s possible but doubtful.

to us mochinists that would be "four tenths of a tenth" which can be measured. GM engine heads we held a dowel hole diameter + - 12.5 microns. The old shcool guys would go "oh crap this hole is three thousance oversize"...and I would say "john those are microns, it is aluminum, and it is 105 degrees F just out of the wash process"....and I'd get a sheepish "oh yea hehe".

Yup I agree it could be done. I’m not a machinist by any stretch of the imagination but even if measuring the chamber dimensions probably not going that far out. What parts of a rifle would be measured that precise?

Short answer is none of the parts.  There's a tolerance on all of it, for the AR15/M16, and that's all in the TDP - Colt's "Technical Data Package."

Eugene Stoner knows what the details of that are - he made it, after he made the AR-10.  Colt bought the details - the TDP - for the M16 contract.  If there's ever a "Mil-Spec" for this large-frame AR platform, it's the original Armalite AR-10. Knight's Armament hired Eugene Stoner for a reason - design the SR-25, which a varient of said rifle turned into the military M110.  That's the "mil-spec standard" in the industry, because that's the only design the military ever used...

UPDATE: 

Got to reshoot the afore mentioned rounds today.

~20 of each, in 2 different mags.

rifle fed all of them flawlessly. 

I guess more ammo down the pipe is needed to be sure. If problems re develop I will fix gas port

Thanks to all for the help.

If it continues to run poorly 98Z5V is the man to listen to.

Thank you, my good man - I appreciate that.  These things have been a headache for several years, as shipped.  It's taken alot of time (both ways, back and forth with owners) requesting information, studying information, comparing information - testing and fixing some myself...   It's not been an easy process, over the years.  But there IS a pattern to follow to get them running tip-top, every single time, no matter what.  The hardware is great - most of it - some of the specs on the individual parts, not so much.  That's what needs changed. 

They'll never change it, tough - so we keep helping people with them, and make them run.  

Thanks for the props - it does mean alot.  :thumbup:
