    I was thinking the same thing. And the stamping EP-B doesn't look quite right either. Font looks a little off.

    That sounds like a combination of possible problems. A dirty/partially plugged gas port and a dirty extractor spring. Either would contribute to that problem. Get a bolt tool and take down the bolt....

    What it looks like to me is a tool that is used for forming the bottom lips for the base plate on a carbine mag. But that's my WAG. Someone would need to check dimensions.
