    Not a warranty issue? Or to hard to chase up?

    Tacking onto the Lucid discussion - anyone played with the M7 RDS lately? Appears to be good value compared to performance.

    Where did you buy it from? Always good to know sites that don't care about warranty

    under a hundy USD, simple as as that, add items to your cart, buy. (make sure there exportable items theres a filter for that, and even though they say they're allowed to export brakes they won't) (dont forget any import permits you may need, do this first) (barrels and receivers need export
    permits, this will cost $250usd)
    you dont get any idea on shipping cost till the order is processed, and varys from $16usd to $40usd (so a sub hundy USD order will set you back upto $200nzd landed)

    over a hundy will need export permits, and cost $250usd per order, you will need import order forms this end for everything, (impossible on a-cat), send them to the US with a hand written order. must match your online order.

    I suggest you pick the cheapest postal method, typically $15US for international postage per $100. Some parts are restricted eg an AR15 upper even if its less than $100US so there will be a $250US fee.

    I have an AR question. I fitted an adjustable gas block to my bang stick. I wound it down to the most restrictive setting, it still cycled with the suppressor on so job done.

    Post that I have had a few misfeeds. Typically what happens is that the bolt hasn't slit all the way foward (hasn't closed properly). Occasionally this also happens when I try and close the bolt on a new mag as well. How clean and how lubed the action is has an effect on this as well.

    My question is whats causing this. Have I restricted the gas flow too much and it's short stroking or is the buffer spring not springy enough to send the bolt foward and chamber the round?

    My first suspsicion is that it's the adjustable gas block because thats the last thing I changed. However this happening on a new mag when I manually close the bolt makes me think the buffer spring isn't springy enough.

    Hoping for some useful advice on what the likely cause is from the more experianced AR fans on here.

    Does it lock the bolt back when the mag is empty?
    If so, then its getting enough gas, if not then it needs more.

    Is the buffer spring got a bit of grease or oil on it, not to much but not as dry as a nun's nasty...

    And what type of mag, a lot of the 5 round mag's are problematic in the way their springs are coiled and apply to much pressure on the cartridges, and that then causes similar issues you are facing...
    A 10 round mag, with something limiting follower travel to 7 rnds is best for A-cat...

    Just food for thought.
