thought I was goinng to finish building my AR today PSA bolt arrived I was overjoyed. when I tried to insert bolt it wold not seat all the way, took another bolt from another AR same thing but when I tried seating PSA bolt in other A it worked flawlessly. SO II decided maybe gas tube was off, I removed gas tube and I still have the same problem bolts will not seat all the way. what could possibly be wrong or am I doing something wrong??????


using LW 16in barrel with YHM FF and supposedly YHM upper bought off of EE

Does a bolt seat in the chamber?

Pictures would help.



Are you using a old BCG with lots of carbon build up where the bolt normally seats preventing it from locking back fully?

Is your barrel nut torqued down the proper ft/lb?

are you sure it's the gas key misaligned with the gas tube?

Is the dust cover closed? I have had some hang on that with the door shut and didn't notice it at first. Just a thought
