ok ... so i'm a little slow , but i've discovered the problem , hands down ... the gun now catches at the bolt catch ... fresh mags no longer fall out ... the new utg mil spec buffer is gorgeous ... makes my receivers look almost cheap ...
enough suspense ... the ati tube just wasn't milled out deep enough ... that is to say , the inner length was about 3/4" short ...
some how ... i still feel retarded ... like i should have caught that earlier ?
