    Guy Needing To Trouble Shoot

    Seen this today.
    Looking at the screen picture you just know it's going to be one of those days when your first shot hangs up.
    I'm thinking he should stop shooting it and give it a Tune Up.
    Probably not a good idea to throw your spent Mag down on the concrete.

    Picture looks like the thing is crooked. Compare the rear sight to the front blade. Might be just the angle though. The guy seems to be reaching a lot to the forestock too. He needs some Carbine operating and IA lessons too. I wonder if he's left handed.
    "...first shot hangs up..." Looks like a mag lip issue. Easily fixed with fine, long, needle nosed pliers. My one 30 round mag needed the lips tweaked open a tick(that's less than a wee bit.) to get it to feed reliably.
    Spelling and Grammar count!

    I'm thinking the awkward hold and reach is because he has a go pro strapped on his chest.

    It does make it look like the barrel is over indexed in the screen shot, but very possibly camera angle.

    To Add: How far is that back stop?
    I see his sight is all the way back to the 300 I believe.
    Would be interesting to see his group..... If he was shooting at a target. Looks like he's just trying to hit the stop ?

    I can tell you right now he has a bad extractor. Probably a damaged edge. Not extracting cleanly. It need to be replaced. Watch the way it throws the brass all over the place. I suspect he is also using aftermarket mags as they appear to be dragging on the bottom of the bolt.
    When they tell you to behave, they always forget to specify whether to behave well or badly!

    Like Charlie says, it's a GoPro camera issue.

    I don't think so Charlie, just half way up the slide. I had one that wanted to be all the way back to shoot POA at 100 though.

    JIm,
    I can see it now that it's not all the way to the rear when I watch full screen.
    At least he's out shooting. I wasted the day waiting for a flight tonight @ 8:30. They kept texting with 1/2 hr delays. @ 11:45 they cancelled. So try again Friday night @ 7:30. Lucky the Airport is only 1/2 hr away, but lost 1 day of celebrating my Grandsons 4th Birthday.

    Thx All, Have a Safe Weekend..

    If it were me, I would clean the chamber really well and disassemble the bolt and clean that real good as well and replace the extractor spring and the ejector spring first before I would replace the extractor (as long as the extractor face looked all right). Mine usually ejects at about the 4 oclock position, his seems to be ejecting at the 2 o'clock for the most part. I would also clean around the Piston as good as I could and then try again. Did this guy in the description happened to mention factory ammo or reloads?

    And also, I hope this guy is not using a reproduction extractor and is using a usgi extractor because there is no comparison.this is a reproduction extractor that lasted a whopping 9 rounds before it failed. If I were a betting man, where the guy in the video looks young, I bet the first thing he did was put an extra power recoil spring in his carbine and those do nothing but cause problems. I have never tried one but I have read thousands of times where people do and very rarely have good results with them. These carbines have been running for over 70 years without extra power springs, so I don't know why anyone would think they need them today

    As a young guy who has done that...I'll agree they're crap. Took the old one with me to the range and changed it out after the first few short strokes. Total waste of time.
