I am thinking this might explain why the PRI Fatboy/pigtail gas tubes and one-piece gas rings don't always solve problems on shorty ARs. The gas tube increases cycle time allowing the pressure in the chamber to drop to a level where it isn't enough to overcome extractor lift. At the same time, the one-piece is giving a better seal and increasing rearward movement of the bolt. Of course I had this thought during an insomniac moment at 2am this morning and don't own a shorty - so take it with a grain of salt.

So the heavier spring/D-ring thing would probably prevent this entirely... The question then becomes, Do you want to prevent it?
