View Full Version : MSAR E4 ?

February 08, 2015, 08:15
Just got a good buy on a MSAR STG-556 E4. Rifle shoots and work great. I put around 100 rounds through it with no issues.

After cleaning I was re-assembling the bolt carrier, I see the carrier has a dog let cut in it for the bolt key. When I put the bolt in the carrier I am unable to get the bolt to follow this dog leg clear back, it goes straight back, stops and will not rotate down into the dog leg. Is this ok or do I have some not put back together right?

Got it figured out, the sleeve moves only when it comes in contact with the breech and the bolt enters the locking lugs on of the barrel extension.

I have taken it apart and put back together several times with the same results. I do not want to shoot it again until I am sure this is right. I went on line and checked the MSAR manual but this was no help.

I had the same issue-youtube had some videos from the guy from Ratworx doing a pretty detailed strip and put back together. Helped me.

I'd want a 20" barrel version with the original light barrel profile (NO HBAR!) and the original integral Aug optic. Not a fan of the short barreled HBAR rail versions.
