    7.62X39 Failure to Eject

    Hi Everyone,

    I just purchased my XCR in 7.62X39 a week ago, been out shooting with it twice.
    First time i ran about 60rds of Steel through it, Failure to Eject 100% of the time, on gas setting 4.
    I went online and read through some threads regarding this issue, suggesting a "break in" period of several hundred rounds with brass ammo, and also running it "wet" on the highest gas setting.
    So after cleaning it and oiling it (generously) I went out and fired 200rds of Brass through it on gas setting 4, again Failure to Eject 100% of the time.

    Any advice?

    Likely improper gas port sizes or a tight chamber. Are you getting failure to extract from the chamber at all (as in stuck cases in the chamber) or simply failure to eject where the spent case gets stuck in the ejection port after extraction from the chamber?

    Not too sure, Im fairly new to the gun community and don't quite understand all the language. What i can explain is that nothing has jammed on me, but i simply need to cycle the action myself. Every time i fire a round, i have to pull back the charging handle to eject the casing and release it to chamber another round.

    It is set on 4, and i have ran 10rds on the other settings as well with the same problem.

    The "4" on the dial is in about the one o'clock position if you're looking at the front of the rifle

    My 7.62 dial is mis-marked. If yours is stamped the same way as mine, 4 being at 1 o'clock is actually the suppressed setting (smallest hole).

    Take the dial off and look where the dial is when the largest hole is on the bottom (facing the barrel). For mine, it is 180 degrees from the removal position. I shoot steel all day using the middle sized hole (setting 2), which lines up "S" with the detent.

    Just make sure you know where the removal setting is, and don't fire it with the gas dial in that position or you'll be throwing two projectiles down range.

    Haven't done it myself, but seen enough posts about it here to make it worth mentioning.

    Thanks For the help! I checked my gas port and it was aligned on the suppressed setting. Removed the dial, and aligned it properly. Can't wait to go try it out.
