Sorry to hear about your Cycling problems hylander.I see the gun is grouping well I haven't had a chance too try mine out since last week.Did you buy that upper already complete if you did they should have adjusted the block.If you have a extra buffer spring change it I read that problem on AR.com and it was the spring. My AR is built complete from bushmaster and so far so good it has no problems. good luck

I orderd the upper complete.The Cycling problem is cured but it has a bad chamber.I have a Wolf extra power spring on its way as well as a Jewell trigger :unsure:

How did you decide it was a chamber problem?

Does that mean you will have too send that upper back and get a new one in exchange. or just change the barrel out..

Got my Exrta power recoil spring and Jewell trigger installed.Trigger is pretty sweet :unsure: First Stage 1lb. 12ozSecond Stage 2lb. 10ozUpper should be here by next weekend.John said he doesn't think there is a problem with the chamber, still thinks it is bad brass, he is wrong on that point as the brass is from two differant manufacturers.And some new and some resized.However he did say there is still the accuracy issue and the leaky gas block,so he is installing a new barrel and refitting the gas block.

That's good. I think there's a chamber problem though otherwise he wouldn't replace the barrel.

He's back and much better:New Barrel and gas block.Functions flawless, No FTF of FTE and no gas blowby B) It's not the shooter that John's is Or maybe I should say "I'm not the shooter" John is :) In any case We did pretty good for the first time out.I'm ready to Pop some Squirrels :)NewBarrel2.jpgNewBarrel1.jpg

It looks pretty good Sterling. I think with a bit more getting used to it you'll do great. :)

What is your trigger set at?
2lb. 10oz. Nice and crisp :) I may go alittle lower after I get more use to the Rifle.
