Last month I started having FTEject problems with the Galil ACE in 556. I hadn't cleaned the rifle in a couple of months (I had just been adding lube) so I filed stripped and cleaned it throughly. Still had FTEject, so I then detail stripped the bolt and tried again. The pics document the results: three FTEj out of 30 rounds of GECO 55gr, and two FTEj out of 30 rounds of M855.

Contacted IWI and the rifle's been sent back for them to fix.

Me too, but when I stripped the bolt I checked the extractor and there weren’t any chips or burrs, and no excess dirt either. Extractor spring tension was enough to make getting the extractor back in a pain.

Keep us updated. Was looking at one of these

What was the round count when the rifle started having issues?

Have you been firing the same ammo (manufacturer, lot, load) through it the entire time?

Is that little rubber piece seated properly on the back of the action spring button? (Check the action spring for debris / anything to cause it to bind or ride heavy).

So no update yet.

I'm interested in this too. I have the same rifle and haven't had any issues in 600~ rounds. I've used exclusively MEN M193 ammo so far. You said this is the second time you had to send it in. What was the first issue? Has their customer service been good? I called to ask them about replacement recoil spring buffers and they said they don't offer any. I was a bit irked by that considering it's probably the most susceptible to failure in the future.
