LAR-8 Charging Handle Sticking

Recommended Posts


In the "fired" position, my LAR-8 has a charging handle that is sometimes tough to get back first time for chambering a round. It's almost locked-dropping the butt of the gun onto the ground sharply is the assist needed to free it every time. Sometimes a jiggle will work. Once the trigger has fallen no such problem. Is this a break-in issue? I wonder where the lockup is, and if I can polish a surface to get rid of this phenomenon.

That seems excessive for a " new rifle" ?.  I would pull the handle and bolt out , clean and lube generously for starters. Try less rounds in the magazine or another if available.
