ok does your bolt while in the BGC move in and out freely or does it take a fair amount of pressure to move it? my bolt is pretty hard to move in and out and i was just wondering if this is normal
this is when the bolt carrier group is out of the gun and im moveing ithe bolt by hand

Throw another 900 rounds or so down the barrel.

That should fix it ;)

Gas rings are probably dragging a bit

ok i took the BCG out and i was wondering if you could test something for me since one persons idea of moving freely might be different from someone elses
ok i took out the BGC and pulled the bolt out as far as possible and set it on the table bolt first and the bolt doesnt move
im not too worried about it at all just curious

oh yea and you are right it is the gas rings. i have seen replacement gas rings for sale, do they ever need to be replaced?
im not considering doing it but was just wondering if they wear out

Yes they do wear out and sometimes break, but you have a ways to go unless something freaky wierd happens... A spare parts kit will have assorted pins, springs, and rings in it and is always nice to have if something should fail

Just to note, my bolt will drop into the BCG under its own weight when held vertically (bolt up)

If your bolt moves very easily in your bolt carrier, you need to replace your rings. If you hold your bolt carrier up verticaly and the bolt slides down in the carrier, your rings are shot. Think of it like pistons in an engine. Your set up if fine.

If you tip your BCG down with the bolt in and it comes out on it's own, they are shot as well.. :)

^^^ the former marine rso who sold me my ar told me the same thing. if it falls out of its own accord, it's time to get some new rings!
