    Just finished a pistol build today and while test firing the first 3 shots went fine. The 4th round fired and ejected but the bcg did not go into battery I then ejected the live round and fired again . This round also ejected and did not go into battery but now the bcg is stuck in the chamber with a live round . What the hell do I do now.

    All parts are new
    Superior arms lower
    RRA lower parts kit
    RRA pistol tube car buffer assembly
    RRA upper
    RRA bcg & charging handle
    Sherluk 11.5" barrel assembly
    YHM phantom flash hider.

    Thanks in advance for any help .

    Grab the charging handle with one hand and hold the rifle with the other. Then smack the darn thing butt first hard in the ground. Pulling hard on the charging handle while you smack it. And just like when you were a teenager, keep wacking it till you get some results. MAKE SURE IT IS ON SAFE!

    If that doesn't get the live round out then you need to go to a gunsmith immediately.

    Umm, yeah, sure. As if some things are out-grown.

    What ammunition are you using? If brass reloads they are probably slightly out of spec for dimensions.

    Good luck on smacking the butt of the weapon on the gorund with a pistol build that would worry me without a butstock but I don't know of any other way. I hope you don't damage the tube.

    Safety on or no, make sure that thing's pointed in a safe direction. Unfortunately for you, "up" might be the only "safe" position (which it isn't really).

    Would it be better (FOR THIS PURPOSE ONLY) to replace the tube with a A2 stock.

    I can get the upper and lower seperated . I also am worried about using the pistol tube for this .

    I know what you are saying, but smacking it on hard on the ground with a live round in there scares the hell out of me!

    If you put a stock on it then your lower becomes a rifle lower and your barrel must be 16 inches. I know it is crazy.

    I don't know of another way. I would prefer that to putting a rod down the barrel and beating a live round out.

    I had a person suggest to take the barrel off. First is this possible with the bcg in it and would it be any more/less safe than other suggestions. Also if I fill the barrel with oil or something for a while could that kill the round .

    You might be able to get the barrel of if you cut the gas tube. You will never get the gas tube out with the BCG in the way. Even that getting the nut to loosen with the gas tube in the way might not work or damage that.


    A good round will be crimped tight enough that the oil will not get into the powder making it inert.

    If you don't want to do it take it to a gun smith tell him the status of the pistol and ask him to fix it. That is why they exist. I would make sure he will accept it before bringing a pistol with a round in the chamber into his shop.

    Thanks

    I am going to attempt all suggestions in the most logical order this afternoon after work.

    Thanks for all the advice.

    This is one case where I might try hitting the forward assist and firing the rifle. Just make sure it's all the way in battery before firing it. If it just sticks it in more and won't extract, at least you can use a dowel or heavy duty cleaning rod to safely extract it at that point.

    I prefer the "mortar man" clearance method that was already suggested, but I don't know what it would do to your unprotected buffer tube. If you bend the tube, the bolt carrier could be siezed inside it and prevent you from being able to unhinge the upper and lower recievers. I've only seen that once, but it turned a fairly simple malfunction into a visit to a gunsmith.

    #1. If you are not comfortable, take it to a smith.

    This is what I would do.
    If it is in battery shoot it.

    If it is not in battery, separate upper from lower. There should be enough room to stick a flathead screwdriver in between the carrier and upper frame at the ejection port and pry.

    Deturmining what is wrong with you setup is going to be a problem.
