My Olympic did that too. Turns out the muzzle brake was loose. Check yours if you have one. If it aint loose it might be crooked. Run a cleaning rod down the barrel and see if it touches the hole in the end of your brake.I took it off and it did fine. It just made too much noise and punished other shooters at the range anyway.

no that's not it. i was just wondering if may be the c/handle is at a different height than an A2 or if the frontsight is different cos it's on a flattop.

need to find out the scoop cos i have a couple of a2 upper that i'd swap the the flat out for. or maybe a different rear sight.
