No this isnt my first AR, this is my first build however.

DD 16'' mid length light weight barrel
Palmetto state armory upper
troy 11'' standerd battle rail
DD .625 gas block with DPMS gas tube

I brought another rifle and after 5 rounds i field striped and checked gas rings, they looked good i then put the bolt in my other rifle and it fired flawlessly

i would have to assume its leaking at the gas block but im not sure
