Safety first! just a reminder


Recommended Posts

If the bolt isn't fully rotated in the barrel extension, and the bolt carrier isn't fully forward, then the firing pin is too short to reach the primer.


There's much debate all over the 'net about out-of-battery explosions - but the above is the truth.


If those conditions aren't met (bolt fully seated in extension, BCG fully forward), then the firing pin hitting the primer "early" isn't what's causing something like that.


I'm just sayin'.
