    Cool, I'm glad you received it this time. Could it be the buffer retaining pin that it's hitting, or is there a groove milled into the bolt to clear the pin? Seems that if the bolt retracts into the tube, the spring loaded pin would be in the way.

    OK,

    Chamfering the buffer tube at it's opening fixed the problem and everything works OK now. It's mounted on the Saber Defense lower and it cocks the hammer smoothly when the bolt is opened.

    Hope to shoot it this weekend.

    I hope it works well..It looks nice on that lower. I do question the recoil from it as well as any .50 upper on an AR lower...Looking forward to the range report

    Is there anything in the manual that addresses the issue you have?

    No,

    He just mentions you could have a bent buffer tube.

    Putting a radius on the buffer tube solved the problem and I'm sure it will be fine.

    The edge of the tube was sharp so it was stopping the plastic plug on the end of the bolt.

    Is that the 24" barrel? How is the quality of the plastic handguard? It sounds like he had some initial problems with the handguards.

    Ditto

    Also how is the bipod, does it seem sturdy, easy to fold?



    Thank you for the pics

    Sweet article! Pretty much sums it up with targets to boot. Nice detail of the savage style barrel nut, and free float handguard arrangement. Each person will have to decide for themselves, but I think Chris has a winner!
    The article talks about using a lead filled 20 rd mag for added weight. What a concept! This is a must read for anyone interested in one of these uppers.
