Ok... I have a scope mount that I added to my L1A1 and if I tighten the screws, the bolt carrier is hard to pull back. More friction, but the mount doesn't effect the area which the carrier moves. My only thought was that the mount created presure around it and made the carrier difficult to move. Any ideas?

What kind of scope mount and what kind of receiver? Have you ever had binding problems without the mount? Is there any evidence of rubbing anywhere on the mount?

I suspect the ends of the screws are rubbing against the carrier. Maybe shorten your screws a little bit.
