Hi all as some of you know I just finished my kit build. I was showing my cousin the AR and the charging handle was pulled back and slammed home. He put the mag back in the gun and when I got it back to put it away I checked the gun to make sure it was safe no live ammo.
I pulled the handle and it wouldnt come back. I thought well maybe the buffer spring came out or something so I took it apart and saw the problem.
The Buffer Retainer is bent and missing the bottom its now hollow. The spring was jammed inside it and was hitting my charging handle. I know when I put the buffer spring in it was a solid piece. I emailed the company just a few min ago and will see if they send a replacement if not I will just get one. Im taking this to my gun smith to have checked out as well.
My question is should the buffer retainer be hollow and has anyone had this type of problem before?
