I recently acquired a new Bushmaster M17S BullPup. After firing around 10 rounds through it, it began to jam up on me. Many times the bolt would reciprocate but a new round would not be pulled off the clip and loaded into the chamber. Out of a hundred rounds, it did this around 40 times. A few (around 8) times the bolt would pick up a round off the clip, but the bullet would jam.
I think the clip may be too lose or the bolt may not be going back all the way to pick up another round.
Is this a common occurrence? Should I send it back to Bushmaster, or is there an easier way to fix this?
I appreciate your advice,
