    Re: problem

    Have you had a trigger job? If so sometimes light strikes are an unfortunate side effect.If your hammer spring was bent during this it can cause light strikes.If it has been bent just straighten out the legs and you should be good to go.If not you may want a 7.62x39 hammer spring,that should solve any light strike issues,that thing is a bear! ;D

A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.----John Stuart Mill

    Re: problem

    Make sure you've put 300 rounds through your XCR first on gas setting 4. Try and use hot stuff if possible. M193 for example, or Q313A if we are talking Winchester.

    After 300 rounds, take it down, give it a good cleaning, lube, add a couple of drops of CLP to the trigger pack.

    If problem persists, change the ammo and see if that makes a difference at all. Some lots of ammo are better than others, especially when talking budget ammo.

    Re: problem

    It could be the ammo. Hard to say. When you push the firing pin in, does it clear the bolt face like it should?
