ArmaLite .308 Jamming


Recommended Posts

So during extraction, the empty brass is staying in the lugs of the bolt and not ejecting right. 

If so, pull the extractor spring, make sure its still springy (they sometimes get smashed during installation) and not upside down. 

If that doesn't need replacing, you'll have to get the tool to remove and check the ejector pin and spring.

 

If you meant it's locking up in the chamber, then it's time to fluff and buff the chamber with a polishing compound.

Get another brand of ammo and see if it does the same thing as well.

Yeah, it's locking up in the chamber. I will try this and get let you know something, thanks.

Go simple first, just try a polishing compound on a q-tip and run it around the chamber, especially the bottom if that's where you are sure it's hanging.  If that doesn't help, get a powered dremel and go a little harder at it.  And definitely try another brand of ammo if you haven't already.

Another way to polish the chamber is to get a 45 caliber bore mop. Attach a section of cleaning rod to it. Chuck the rod into a drill. Saturate the mop with some sort of metal POLISH like Flitz. Stick it in the chamber and run the drill for 10-15 seconds at a time checking often. you don't want to remove material, just polish what is there.

But if it were me I would let the company fix it.
