I just aquired a ar15 and I dont know much about them.. The gun fires a round but only ejects partway. the next round jams up with the one being ejected. I tried just on rd ,but the bolt cathes it before it clear the weapon. any help would be appreciate

thank you for your wisdom. I bought the gun used, it is a WPA commando ser.001000 it appears to be in great condition. I am shooting fed. 223/5.56 ammo new ammo. I broke the weapon down and cleaned and lubed it thouroughly. I tried firing one rd at a time, the bolt would hit the shell be extracted every time before it could abe completely extracted. I have tried all I know need more of your wisdom. thank you grizz300

I checked the ejector and extractor springs and they both seem to have good tension
