I did some headspacing on my FAL's this weekend to get them ready to test fire.
I borrowed some shoulder locking gauges from Illya (thanks for the help my man!) I got 2 out of my 3 FAL headspaced. The third one I'm having an issue with.
With the shoulder locking guage of .253 in the receiver I put in my go guage and the bolt doesn't close.
Then put in my nogo gauge and the bolt doesn't close.
This is how it is with all the shoulder guages. Without the go or nogo guages in the bolt closes flush.
What am I missing? What are my options? I don't think locking shoulders go below .253 do they?
Here is the problem child.
