    Most mag springs I am aware of have little Bend at the end of the spring like a shown in the first picture. As you can see in the second picture I have clipped it off. Does anyone know what the ramifications of that might be, particularly long-term? The reason I ask is because I think I...

    i acquired a firearm which was never shot. I had issues with the AR not cycling. Failure to feed, failure to eject. I thought the bolt was stiff, so I replaced it. It worked with one box of supersonic ammo, but then it went back to its usual self. Everyone here graciously gave me a lot of...
