Range day was somewhat disappointing.

THe cons:
Consistent stovepipe every 6 to 8 rounds.
Hand guard loosened up.
Sight sucks ( 15$ amazon one I had on it as a pistol was better)

The pros:
Stock works fantastic. Length of pull and cheek height feel great. Beats on the shoulder a bit
Trigger is awesome (but may be contributing to stovepipe).


Notes on the stovepipes:
The new hammer is still wearing into the bolt carrier. Not sure if the front shape is different, but it sure puts a tight pull on the bolt carrier when the hammer is down.

May need a bit more Gas. I was using the birdcage muzzle device. I was going to try my Brownells Shortbreak but it didn't clear the new handguard. When I had it on before, it definately upped the gas pressure. I ordered a Tapco slot break and Ill see if that improves reliability.

Bolt may be contacting the pin retainer plate I installed (did not use it before issue)

Ejector look sharp and is tight to the bolt. It contacts the top and inside edge of bolt (light polish, not an interference fit). Extractor seams clean and tight. Seams to hold round just fine.

It was the factory Draco trigger before. And the pin retainer replaces the shepherd hook.

Definitely check the retainer plate areas for friction or areas of contact... Look at your hammer face too... So does the bolt hang up when charging.
