I have a colt 6920 that I'm trying to clean. I've never had a problem removing the cam pin, but today it refuses to rotate. I have pushed the bolt back into the bolt carrier so the pin comes down, but it only twists a little bit. Took a pair of pliers and gently tried to rotate it but that won't work either. Does anyone have a suggestion?

You do have the firing pin out, right?

At work we carry M4's that you have to check out, so 3 or 4 guys are assigned to checkout a gun. I went to check mine out to qualify with it and when I got to the range, I took it out of the car and heard a rattle. Took it apart and someone who had qual'd with it the day before had put the bcg back together, except they put the cam pin in, then the firing pin retainer clip, and then the firing pin. So nothing was holding the FP in there and it was just flopping around. I'm glad it was on a qual day and not on something serious where I would've needed to shoot at someone.

Maybe, but most likely they just didn't push the firing pin all the way in before pushing the firing pin retainer in. That happened to me one time, caught it on the function check post reassembly. Dry fire didn't sound right. Opened it back up and found the problem pretty quickly Made the statement to myself" That's why I do a function check"

I did that once too. Now I close the bolt like its in battery before inserting the retaining pin.
