  1. Just discovered my KVP bolt had sloppy loose gas key screws. 1st indicator was a fairly stiff dragging when removing the bolt from the NFA billet upper. I had wiped it down prior to the Monday match and it seemed fine, although I didn't really pay much attention to the gas key. The bolt was slightly beat up in front of the gas key, where the side charging handle lug mates with it I believe. I smoothed out the slight burr that had formed there with a file. It looks as if the burr was dragging in the upper on the edge of the gas key channel. I red-loctited the screws, torqued them as much as felt comfortable and attempted restaking. We'll see how it goes. May not get to try it before the Sunday match.

    This is more along the line of what I'm looking for. I already do quite a bit of preliminary "swimming" through the cleaned brass to separate out any .38 Super or odd .380 that might have snuck into the mix. Hopefully, this overall look for oddities can turn up the stepped brass also. If I can avoid having to strain/magnify a look at every case head, it would be a massive time saver for my middle aged eyes.

    Gotcha. Thats kind of what I was trying to avoid.

    Any secrets to how you folks check for stepped brass? I've seen it, but haven't paid it much attention.
  6. I'm shooting TG with PC'd bullets. Starting to show some buildup in my JP comp. I don't shoot as much as a lot of you so I don't have near that kind of buildup. Just trying to stay ahead if this.
  7. This is a concern. Wonder if a sonic cleaner and appropriate chemicals would take care of this?
  8. These are good tips, thank you. I've been working with the Glock mag version and in my case a little tweeking is needed.
  9. Coated bullets in carbines

    What diameter do those fired bullets measure?
  10. PCC Doubling - Causes and Cures?

    Wow, wonder if it's the specific brand of trigger causing the wear or the heavy movement of the blowback PCC system? Wonder if a billet lower would wear differerently?
  11. I had what seems to be a very similar problem with my JR carbine. Firing pin fouled in the bolt.
