    Default bolt hits magazine

    I recently finished a romy build and when I inserted a magazine and let the bolt forward I suddenly found that the bolt will not go all the way forward. After closer inspection i found that the bolt cannot fit in between the ejector and the mag feed lip. I then noticed that a couple of the spot welds near the ejector broke free....What do I do now?

    Spot welds as in the rail broke loose? You can re-weld the rail. You can re-clamp and re-weld them but you'll have to drill the holes out again.

    its not fully broken loose, just the front is a little bit loose, the main problem is that the bolt doesn't clear the magazine, how do i address this problem

    yea I put it in, I think I figured it out, the welds in the rear of the ejector have come loose and its causing it to flare out and therefore the bolt cannot clear it.....so i gotta reweld it

    Just be sure to clamp it really well. When the welds break partially, they tend to ride up on the weld and push away from the receiver. Ask me how I know

    To be honest, if you have one weld break, you may have others close to breakage. It *may* be worth it to re-weld the entire rail. Your call on that one...

    if pursay I didn't have a spot welder readily available how wise would it be to use JB weld assuming that I still have 2 or 3 good spot welds holding the rail on?

    No, it wouldn't hold that type of bond. Silver solder may work if you could back it properly to reduce warpage. Grind it smooth and call it good.

    Or you could drill and tap it and install a couple button head screws with lock-tight.
    I have done that as a quick fix before, worked fine.

    I don't remember who made the receiver but my neighbor had it and it was a piece of crap.
    Actually I think it was a Horn.
