I have noticed that I have several deep scratches on my buffer right behind the pin that holds it in. I am also currently experiencing feeding problems that involves the rounds not feeding from the left side of the mag. is it possible that the two are somehow related?

What you are describing sounds like normal wear to me.

I would agree, however it's never been fired- just cycled by hand.

How sure are you that it has never
been fired???

I think the evidence speaks for itself.. those scratches (dig marks) occured during firing.

Well, I'm sure it was test
fired at the factory.

I'll say that
a scratch on the buffer
has nothing to do with
your feed problem....if you really have
one.

Doesn't sound like they are related. Don't know abouot the buffer. But I would try another magazine, sounds like you got a bad one.

Hmmm, let me think... Maybe because I bought it BRAND NEW as a lower receiver ONLY!
