    Default V51 not going into battery

    My V51 sbr has started to misfire. After firing a shot it will pick up and chamber the next round. Sometimes the bolt will not go fully into battery. I will check the bolt gap tomorrow after I go buy a new set of feeler gauges. Of course I misplaced my set of gauges. Other than a good cleaning what else do I need to check?

    Make sure the bolt group is sliding in the receiver without binding. If it's free of binds, it could be a weak recoil spring not returning it to full battery.
    A voice from the past whispers in my ear, “Brethren, keep your powder dry.”

    Check to see if you are getting bolt bounce. If your bolt latch spring needs replacing it can allow the bolt carrier to bounce rearward, instead of your hammer hitting the firing pin it will hit the bottom corner of the carrier. It can be frustrating because it all seems like it should be running.

    Spring is relatively inexpensive.

    Are you running a fixed stock with a recoil buffer, A3 retractable or aftermarket folder?

    Fixed and retractable, was acting up with either of them.
