I'm finishing up my build and have a problem with the bolt carrier.it wants to hang open most of the time.a slight tap or bump and it closes.it appears that when the bolt is directly over the hammer,the spring tension of the hammer is pushing upwards on the bolt carrier.the groove in the bolt carrier that the top rail rides in on the left side raises up just enough to bind right where the top rail is notched for the bolt carrier to be dropped in.could I bevel the leading edge of the groove in the bolt carrier or????? thanks

I have polished the carrier some before and it smoothed out a lot. I think a littel fileing would be fine if you are shure ware it is hanging up. It is ok to file the hammer too, and if you mess it up the hammer is cheaper than a carrier. try a bit of fileing and polishing. see if it gets better. let us know how you make out
