    Default Issues with 7.62

    Took my new HK MR 7.62 for second range run and have an issue. After shooting 25 rounds the rifle stop firing. I am using 7.62 ammo that work great before, not the indentation by firing pin on the primer is very light and thus it's not firing. Any thoughts? Is it possible that firing pin broke after total of 80 rounds? Ideas?

    Can't you take the firing pin out and look at it and see if it's broken?
    Do you even HK, Bro?

    Process of elimination... You're getting light primer strikes, so there's something wrong with your firing pin, or something wrong with your hammer spring.

    Yep that's what I am afraid of - that means sending it over to HK for repairs and wait.

    Check the firing pin and the hammer axle. One of those two is most likely the cause.
