View Full Version : new G1 build feed issues
January 04, 2009, 18:27
I have a new G1 build that has some feed issues.
1. When attempting to feed a round from the left side of the mag, as the bolt slides over the 2nd round in the mag, it tries to strip it out as well.
2. The rifle is a g1 kit built on a dsa type 2 upper. Purchased as a new build that was built but not shot. I have followed the help on the page
http://community-1.webtv.net/ggiill...GIILLIIEESRAIL/ which helped but has not totally solved the issue.
What else should I be looking for?
Thanks in advance

try a different mag. thats first. the other thing it could be is the bolt is hanging too low. either a worn bolt or the receiver rails are low. I bet on the mag being the problem
just load 4 or 5 rounds and try different mags

What receiver do you have?

The upper is a DSA type 2 all the other parts are from a standard G1 kit minus the 7 compliance parts to make it 922 compliant.

Geez, man, ya only need 6 on a G1 as long as ya don't twist on the G1 fh ;) :)
I'm betting a different mag, couple hundred rounds to break her in, and maybe a little smoothing of rails and ramp, she'll be fine.

I see from your profile you live in NC. I live in Apex near Raleigh. How close are we? Maybe we could get together and compare it to my G1 build and figure it out?

does it fail under real fire????
is the mag fully seated ???(push up on the bottom/or rest on a sand bag and try again ...see if that stops it ..
have the mag lips been altered or bent (pliar marks and such ???

I had a guy bring a DSA by the other week that I swear the left side feed ramp was wrong. It was offset towards the center just enough to cause the left side rounds to hang up and then the bolt would push the base down and presto! bolt over base jam!
A little judicious polishing with a dremel on the ramp got it slick enough to feed.
