15,

That is normal but the Charging Handle should keep it from falling completely out if it is latched.

One other thing! Check the gas rings by visually inspecting them and by feel. Lastly pull the Bolt completely forward in the Carrier then set the Bolt Face flat on a flat surface. If the Bolt Carrier Falls Down on the Bolt by it's own weight you need new rings or it could have defective rings that need replaced. This can also effect how easy the Bolt Carrier Group wants to open very easily when held as you mentioned.

^^^^what he said but if it does fall out make sure that the gas key is properly installed and that the charging handle is intact. The notch at the end of the handle should secure the BCG in place.

Ok well i pulled it out and put the bolt down and it fell just by weight. I also went to take it apart and i noticed that it doesnt have the little cotter pin like all my others had. The hole is blocked off. Im confused. I attatched a pic of what im talking about.

Can you post pics from the top and the other side? Is there a firing pin?

There should be a hole on the opposite side where you can use a small punch to push the pin out.
