    Default Carrier popping out

    I know I read about this, but I can't find it. What's the problem/fix if your carrier seems to pop out when you go full travel to the rear? Mine does it occasionally....not enough to actually come out due to the spring/cover, but it's enough to make it hangup. It's the upward pressure from the hammer forcing it up, but I'm not sure how to fix.

    take care,
    Tec

    The easiest answer would seem to be try a recoil buffer? I could be wrong though.

    you could also try tightening up the center-support but not to the point of causing the carrier to bind

    It's an OOW build, so not too much I can tighten I'll keep playing around and I'll make a poor man's buffer to see if that would solve it.

    take care,
    Tec

    Make one out of an old tennis-shoe sole if you can find one. This problem of yours might have occurred if you put your rear trunion too far back in reference to the notches in the top rail where your bolt carrier goes in. You might also consider welding dabs of weld on the back of the rails and smoothing them out with the dremmel, essentially lengthening them by a couple of millimeters. That's what I'd do, ain't sayin' it's what everyone would do.
