I cleaned my gun and took it to the range where it demonstrated a willingness to jam alot. I put in a new bolt and carrier and it worked like a charm. My bolt is not that will used but I think the problem is the extractor spring and I think I want to replace it. I purchased new springs from wolf. Do you think that is what is needed?

What type of jam? Bolt over base? Double feeds? Fail to extract (shell left in chamber? Short strokes? etc... Describe the jam. What type of ammo? What mags? If you changed the bolt/carier, and that cured it, I'd guess you've narrowed the cause, now you need to isolate it. The type of jam will help.

type of jam is fail to extract. sometimes the un-extracted shell jams with the next round to be fired.

I had this problem recently at the range, and it turned out that the extractor spring had completely collapsed. Installed a new spring and guide, and will be test driving this weekend.
