I'm, trying to field strip my new DPMS and it has some sort of orange plastic thing wedged in the chamber, and it won't come out from either way. What is the trick to getting this stupid thing out!!??

can you lock the bolt back and thunk it out with a cleaning rod?

Take a wooden rod and a mallet, slip the wooden rod down the barrel and tap it with the mallet. Don’t wack on it and bust off the rod in the barrel but give it good solid taps. You don’t need an additional item stuck in the barrel.

We had a Bushmaster come in the other day with the empty chamber indictor broken just like you mention. We locked the bolt back and used a cleaning rod to ker-thunk it out. It was in there fairly tight but it came out with a little persuasion with the cleaning rod. By other’s logic I guess that means you don’t buy Bushmaster either?
Best advice: relax, don't panic, and don't make a mountain out of a mole hill. Getting a chamber flag out of the chamber is not rocket surgery.

Cleaning rod (or brass rod) and a hammer; drive the cleaning rod into the barrel and hammer the plastic plug out.
