    said they replaced the upper. They didn't specify if it was complete upper or just upper receiver. Customer service was good. Gun runs fine now. Good luck with your rifle.

    Sorry but BCG?
    Thank you

    As stated above take the BCG out and try to drop a round in to make sure thereís not something going on there. Should go all the way in with no resistance.

    Not to insult your intelligence but you are using the correct ammo? Surely you are? It sounds like your a little green to firearms is why I ask. I once witnessed a guy trying to load .223 rounds in a AK47, as he had no clue about guns. Luckily he was intelligent enough he realized something was wrong when loading a mag and others that knew what they were doing was around. Again, Iím not saying you donít know what your doing but you donít know what you donít know.

    If all seems well there call ruger and tell them whats going on before getting out the file and cleaning up burs on the bolt lugs. They have great customer service and should take care of you.

    Jus my for what itís worth

    Well to be honest I am a Mini Guy love both my 14 and 30 to me I find them better suited to my tastes.

    To answer your question 3 different brands of 223 were tried all brass case. I pulled the bolt carrier group out and found it to be very stiff. I grabbed the spray can of gun scrubbed hosed it down and let it air dry. Then I cycled it back and forth several times while adding drops of Hoppes gun oil. It seemed to loosen up a bit.

    But still when you pull the charging handle the bolt does not travel fully forward unless you give it a slight tap with your hand.

    I am guessing I have found the issue?

    Yes no round and it seems to stop about an 1\8 to 1/4 inch before fully seating.

    I'm willing to bet it's a bcg machining issue.

    When putting a round in, are you slowly letting the charging handle/bolt go forward or are you pulling the charging handle to the rear and completely letting go of it and allowing it to ďslamĒ back into battery?

    Whenever I start running a new AR i bring a few mags by different manufacturers, and on the last one, I was glad to have a spare upper and bcg to diagnose issues. I also soak them LIBERALLY with gun oil, until it's seeping out the trigger pin holes and splattering our the dust cover. Once it runs good I don't keep them that wet. With a rifle manufactured completely by one company, if I had any issues whatsoever, I would call them, just like a car, kitchen appliance, etc. Good luck, keep us posted!
