I am Havering problems cambering rounds
I thank it is a feeding problem but I am not sure I don't know any thing about the rifle
What exactly is it doing? Not doing?
Is the bolt not picking up the round, or is it not feeding into the chamber?
Not feeding in to the chamber properly
I don't know if it a problem with. The magazines or the rifle
New or used?
Used I got it off of a friend. For $75
Also, are you having any pressure on the mag while it's trying to cycle? Like, testing your hand against it? And is it happening with both mags?
Just one that I can tell I have had a chance to shoot in a few days so I can't reply discribe the problem to well
The first thing you'll want to do is clean it. Because of the way it's made, many people are intimidated by taking it apart. Have you completely stripped it down and cleaned the hell out of it?
I don't know how this is my first gun
Okay, see if you can reproduce the failure, and take a good close up pic.
I'll check back with you in the morning. I gotta go to bed so I can get junior off to school in the morning.
And I'll post you a step by step picture tutorial on taking it down for cleaning.
Alright I will try to
Ill also help you if you can tell me what's happening wheb it messes up.
What you'll need...
9/64 allen wrench. Also known as allen key, hex wrench, hex head...
phillips and flat head screwdrivers
And for me, my 11MM wrench. I say "for me" because this particular wrench is NOT 11MM. I don't really know what size it is. It's a cheap pakistani wrench, and the whole set were sized improperly. Very few of them in this set fit ANYTHING. You may have to use trial and error, or an adjustable wrench.
You'll also need your rifle. Maybe a little superhero supervision. I don't know. He may just be threatening. He tried to stare me down earlier too... and he won...
NOTE: SAFETY FIRST!!!!!
Make sure the rifle is clear of any and all live ammo. In fact, since this is your first rifle, put the ammo in another room. Remove the magazine FIRST. Lock the bolt to the rear by pulling the charging handle to the rear and pressing it into it's locking notch. Visually, AND PHYSICALLY, inspect the chamber. Use a pencil tip if you need to. People who fail to PHYSICALLY inspect the chamber sometimes have been known to become complacent, and sometimes have a negligent discharge as a result. PHYSICALLY inspect by inserting a foreign object (preferably a finger, but I doubt you can get your finger into this rifle), and making sure that there is NO LIVE AMMO in the chamber. This sounds ridiculously redundant, I know. But, redundancy keeps holes where they belong - Downrange, and not inside the house, a foot, or a family member.
You want to remove the single screw in the bottom of the stock, just forward of the magazine well, using your Allen wrench (hex).
Remove the stock. There is no super secret trick. I grab the barrel in one hand, the forearm of the stock in the other, and pull apart.
Remove these two screws holding the magazine well to the receiver.
And then the one to the rear of the trigger group.
Lift off the mag well, then lift off the trigger group.
Edit to add: I wouldn't attempt to disassemble the trigger group. Many small parts. Just liberally flush it with cleaning solvent, scrub as well as you can, and lubricate.
See this nut? Take it off. Then take off it's little bracket. Pull the barrel from the receiver. See that flat piece of metal sticking out from the rear of the barrel? That's the ejector, not to be confused with EXTRACTOR. The extractor is semi permanently attached to the bolt with a roll pin. The extractor pulls the spent casing from the chamber, and the ejector spits it out of the rifle.
You can pry the ejector away from the barrel with only your hand, but you'll have to tap it back into place when you put it back together. It's kind of crimped into place.
Now that the pesky barrel is out of the way. You can remove your bolt.
Pull the charging handle outward to disengage it from it's locking notch.
Slide the bolt as far forward as your charging handle can go. (DO NOT JUST LET IT GO. Small parts have a tendency of flying around when such things are allowed. This is usually followed by massive amounts of profanity.)
Remove the charging handle by simply pulling it out. You'll see how it's retained under normal operation as you watch closely while you're disassembling it.
Now, pull the bolt from the receiver.
