I JUST COMPLETED MY MODEL 1 PISTOL AR AND THE RECOIL/BUFFER ASSEMBLY OF THE PISTOL IS NEW TO ME AND I HAD TO TRIM ABOUT 3 INCHES OF THE DAMN SPRING OFF TO GET IT TO WORK RIGHT WITHOUT BINDING ON ME WHEN I PUT IT TOGETHER. ANYWAYS WHEN I HIT THE RELEASE(FOR MAXIMUM ENERGY)IT SOMETIMES WONT CLOSE COMPLETELY, I DONT KNOW IF IT MIGHT BE POSSIBLE FOR IT TO ACTUALLY BOUNCE BACK JUST A TAD OR IS IT NOT ENOUGH FORCE FROM THE SRPING. IT CLOSES WITH QUITE A BIT OF FORCE BUT STILL DOESNT CLOSE ALL THE WAY SOMETIMES AND WHEN I DISSASEMBLE AND CLOSE BY HAND ITS VERY EASY AND SMOOTH OPERATION. BUT WHEN I CLOSE WITH THE RELEASE OR JUST RELEASING THE CHARGING HANDLE IT SOMETIMES WONT CLOSE COMPLETELY MAKING IT MORE A SINGLE SHOT RIFLE=-(

ANY IDEAS OR COMENTS WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
THANKS, JEREMY

man the more i look at this thing it seems to be bouncing back almost cuz sometimes i can pull the damn thing back about an inch and it will completely close, and other times when i retract it completely it wont close all the way, NOW WHATS UP WITH THAT?!

Don't know about the pistol configuration specifically but I have seen the same problem on rifles as a result of installing the gas tube upside down.

First, remove the hammer from the lower, then try the bolt cycle. If it works, try a different hammer. In my case the hammer was bent. (slamfire- broke the receiver extension and the bolt carrier, also)

1st of all those pistol buffer thingys are nothing but trouble.  

I doubt the issue is bolt bounce.  This would be the first I've ever heard of such a phenomenon.

If anything I'ld suspect a new, and somewhat sticky bolt/bolt carrier combo that finaly worked itself out and now you have too weak a spring.

Edited to add: Lighten up.  Learn to find humor in even the most terrible of circumstances.  This way, if nothing else, you'll die with a smile on your face.

Sorry, but I have to say that the CAPSLOCK image was funny!

I do hope you get the problem figured out, and that you post the solution to it when you do.  My AR had a very tight bolt, but after a few hundred rounds, it acts nice and loose (it extends when I flick it down towards the ground in my hand).  When it was new, it was hard to even move the bolt within the carrier.  It worked, but with much difficulty (by hand).  The odd part was that it never malfunctioned on me; it always locked right in.  Go figure...

I had a similar problem with a carbine. It was due to a "hooked" hammer. Solution: Get out the grinder.
.....Oh and RELAX!

Ok I'm not trying to get anyone's dander up.  I thought the caps lock picture was funny too.

It's been known since the inception of bulletin boards, chat lines, news groups etc... that typing a word in all caps is meant for emphasis, typing an entire message in all caps means you're shouting.

Just food for thought.
