Sure it's possible. Slam fire happens occasionally so make sure your gun is pointed in a safe direction when charging.

my idea on the matter is that even if you let the bolt slam forward onto an already chambered round, the FP will not have enough momentum to strike the primer hard enough to set off the round, unless they are handrolled with soft primers. That being said, i wouldn't let the bolt fly loose on a loaded chamber.itf the bolt is going forward on its own, the chamber is empty, and either will stay empty, or the bolt is picking up a round out of the magazine.

Nice, reminds me of when I was a wee little tot and my dad had all these little comic books put out by the military explaining certain procedures and protocol.

It's simply the nature of the beast of the Stoner free floating firing pin design.

All is well :)

You thought just because your firing pin dented your primers that your as advertised new RRA was "part scavanged"? That doesn't make any sense to me.

no because of the problem and my inexperiance with the problem and the fact that every new rra rifle ive looked at on rra's web sight has the nm triger so it looked fiunny too me guess not.

but thanks for your thoughts. glad too here its normal . i always chamber any gun in a safe direction so its not that big of a deal .

Dude, you have a lemon rifle that is defective and will blow up in you face.
You need to get rid of it ASAP, so I'll send you funds and mail me the rifle.

Oh well it was worth a try... Congrats on your purchase, I have three rock rivers you have a great rifle,
now stop whining soldier get out there and shoot that thing. oh and buy lots of ammo..

Most, if not all of the RRA rifles coming off the assembly line have the 2 stage trigger installed. However, you can buy complete lowers with a standard trigger group. It's not unlikely that you did purchase a pieced together rifle if you bought it at a gun show. Did you get any type of warranty card or anything with it? (I don't know what normally come with one, I built both of mine)

No. He's new to ARs. Take it easy on the new guy.

This is also why the rounds sould have harder primers. If you reload it's recommended that you use maganum primers.

Congrats on your new RRA, you'll find more expensive but none more dependable, solid or accurate

Normal. This is the reason reloaders need to be careful about primer selection.
Link Posted: 3/29/2009 4:35:07 PM EDT
Normal. Don't worry about it.

Good to hear you are practicing firearms safety. Congrats on the new RRA (I have an Entry Tactical) and have fun.
