I'm an M!A man and am now
a first time owner of an olympic arms AR-15
I installed a new six position adjustable butt
which came with a new spring and plug.
after installing, the action won't come forward
all the way.  I refered to my book but not much detailed
information in there
HELP!  I'm willing to learn.

trying to clarify, the bolt carrier won't fully seat?  or?

Yes that is correct
It lacks forward by about 1" or so
Sorry about the correct terms etc.
Any help would be appreciated
Thanks

are you able to use the foirward assist to move the bolt carrier completely forward?
sounds like the detent that stops the buffer is catching the rear of the bolt carrier

The detent piece with the little nipple on top
should be depressed to not hold the recoil buffer back
Is that right?  if not what position should it be in?
Still Learning

The rear tube is supposed to be screwed in enough to just block the detent from popping all the way out and then locked in place with the locking ring.
The buffer is then held in place with the tip of the detent

I have that set right, but now need to check
to see what is catching the bolt carrier.
Is this my next step?
Sounds like I should have have someone show me how
to do this first.
The rifle is home and I'm at work
will check over noon lunch and see what is going long
will post after noon lunch to let know whay I found
Thanks

Just insert the bolt carrier by itself without the charging handle and see if it closes.
