JUST BOUGHT FAL. ROUND WOULD NOT EXTRACT AND EJECT. BOLT CARRIER IS JAMMED 1/2' BACK. ANY HELP WILL BE APPRECIATED.

This is fairly common with a brand new FAL. What happened is that your gas regulator knob was turned up to high for the shot to work the action. You can exert a good deal of pressure on the chargeing handle to get that round out of there. Just try going straight back in short strong pulls back. Use your discretion. After you get the casing out, put the number down to 4 on the regulator and break the gun in from there.

I had the same problem. Mine wouldn't eject even when the gas regulator was totally closed. I wound up drilling the gas port to .125" and haven't had a problem since. Mike
