    Used 3 additional mags, same problems. Won't extract. Will try another non-Radical BCG next time. So far this upper has been a bust. You get what you pay for.

    When you get the fired round out of the chamber does it have extractor marks?
    The best way to survive a violent encounter is to be the one inflicting the most violence.

    I was curious as well


    Uw - before you swap bcgs , maybe swap the extractor spring and/ or insert or o-ring

    I’ve swapped in a few bcm extractor springs/ Black inserts in some finicky rifles and it seemed to fix it

    So after I had initial issues with this project, I took it out twice more since the last update. I know it's been awhile, but I've been zero'ing a lot of other guns, so it's taken a back seat.

    I've shot another 320 rounds through the upper and the last 260 rounds have been trouble free. I'm going to attribute this to a break in period for this upper. I haven't done anything to trouble shoot it as far as swapping BCG's, extractor springs, ect. I took it apart after my initial troubles and thoroughly cleaned and lubed everything. I then reassembled and still had some sporadic issues.

    I again cleaned and lubed everything and the last 8 mags or so have been trouble free. I'll take it out a few more times to see if the upper continues to function correctly. The only variable I changed was I used 2 fresh out of the wrapper Magpul MOE PMags.

    For $159, I say go for it Jerry, as you're knowledgeable enough with the platform to trouble shoot. If you were a new shooter, I'd say no.

    I'd just get the barrel for $90 https://www.primaryarms.com/radical-...avy-profile-18 That way you're not stuck with someone else's choices for handguard and MD

    On a side note, anyone local to Rainier, I just noticed in the storefront they have used take off Rainier Mountain barrels for $50.

    On the discount table? Nuts, I'm leaving town tomorrow. Think they'd accept a call-in order for one?

    No idea, but probably worth a 5 min call to find out!
