View Full Version : Ammo vs gas setting

March 25, 2002, 20:02
The surplus Brit ammo I had cycled fine on 3. Got some "bag" ammo at the local gun show marked "no reloads." It will only cycle on a setting of 1. Everything about the rifle in clean, dry piston, nice fit. Why such a drastic change? Is it the ammo? Where should it (gas setting) be in a perfect gun (L1A1)?

Ammo is the biggest variable in the gas setting on a clean rifle.
