Hey guys, I'm kinda new to m14's... Picked up an LRB roughly a year ago. Was at the range today and the charging handle became separated from the bolt assembly when charging on the first round of a mag. Is this normal? There is some play in the charging handle. I simply tucked it back in there and function tested a few times and it seems like it's good to go, I just want to make sure... Let me know please...
I had the exact same issue with my Springfield Scout.
The op rod was replaced under warranty - problem solved.
I'd give Lou a call at LRB and ask him. He seems like a straight shooter IMHO.
most likely your oprod tab is worn out. Alternatively, the track on the receiver could be too wide. But a worn oprod tab is most likely. Warbirdcan weld material and reshape it back to original specs.
