I have an AR-15 that will not hold the bolt back. I have changed the bolt release, detent and spring but the rifle will not still lock the bolt back. What have I missed?

Cheers Joe

Now I need to find a good source for a mil-spec tube. The reason I've never notice I had a problem is because I have been using a 22lr kit.

Cheers, Joe
