I noticed that my brother's LEO colt 16" has only two gas rings. Is this normal They don't fill the ring groove completely.

His gun was short cycling and the round wouldn't chamber, 1/2" out. His dept. makes them carry their guns dry, and he uses a form of ultrasonic dry lube. I applied a proper amount of CLP and it ran properly, but I am still concerned about the gas rings. (M-4 RRA collapsible stock, buffer, and spring)

Thanks in advance.

Sounds like he's missing one of the rings.

All of mine are non-Colts with 3 rings. What do you kool-aid drinkers have on your bolts?

My '79 era SP1 had 3 rings and my'90 6601 has 3. So do the two CMT bolts in my other two AR's.

Your BIL needs another ring.
