So I finally got to eject a few empties by hand. Even if I pull back the charging handle very
slowly they eject several feet with both magazines. They seem to have plenty of clearance from
the next ro...

I got the 3031 because it's on the faster end of the spectrum for .308 so I thought it would
burn more fully with a 16" barrel. I have 8 pounds so when I use it up I'll take a look at the

What is the best muzzle device for the 17S? What is wrong with the stock one?Nothing is "wrong"

I'll dry off the piston. I wiped it off pretty well anyway. I'm using PMag magazines which is
what it came with. Not sure if I used the factory mag or my spare but I'm pretty sure both
worked before. ...

Also thought I'd note that the recoil seemed harder than I expected with the muzzle brake. I
