Issues with first outing

Log in to see fewer ads
I grabbed one of these for my son due to the fact that Project Appleseed will not allow the M&P at their events. We had some issues during out first outing that seemed to go away after putting some rounds down range and didn't know if it was normal.

Had an issue with the action not cycling, after a shot the bolt would hold open as if it were the last shot and not reload. It would close with a quick bump. After the outing I pulled the bolt out and found it was very dry, are we supposed to run these bolts dryer than 556 actions? This only happened about 6 times during the first two magazines. After that it cycled fine so I figured it may be due to being brand new.

The second issue I had was a few rounds FTF and damaging the projectile. This happened during the first 3 magazines and went away as well. I would think this would be more of a magazine issue than a rifle issue. Has anyone had these issues? All in all we put about 300 rounds through it and after the first 3 magazines we had no issues. The ammo was federal HV bulk and CCI blazers. The problems were with the Federal which I have no issues with any of my other rifles.

I experienced the same thing. FTF's in the first few rounds. Since then, it has run like a top. So, I am very happy with the rifle.

one of my customers had the same issue with Armscor 36gr HP ammo at the last Appleseed Shoot (I was also the shoot boss). I haven't had any issues with mine, though. Maybe because I tend to run it wet?
