How easy does the piston drop?
How does the bolt group ride over an empty mag?
Mag catch work properly?
Does the main springs feel smooth while dry cocking?
How do mags fit in the well?

Just a thought.

If your headspace is good, the only other thing I would check is the barrel timing. As for the gas setting I started out on 4 and ended up at a 5. After the first round its all downhill from there, good luck.

+1 to P806's checklist
if your piston doesn't bind you should be darn close on the timing. you'll know for sure once / if you start fiddling with that rear sight. (obviously)
when i did my first build i was hesitant too since it practically built itself (DCI 20K range rcvr) and after poring over the FALFiles G&BIY FAQs for months i was geared up for all kinds of trouble.
i even went to the DNR (attended) range in case something went wrong! lol well, kinda
it was fine. still is!
and oh, man - it really is downhill after that first shot!
what's the details on the build? pics?

Just shoot it! You'll be fine. I was nervous my first time, too.
