Hello everyone,I recently purchased a Zenith Z5RS and have noticed what appears to be the bolt making contact with the magazine feed lip on the right hand side during cycling,causing a gouge in said area.Is this common/normal?

No. Are you using the factory mag that came with it?does the gun cycle well or is that extra friction causing problems with operation too? Can you feel it at all when hand cycling?

Type of mags (straight or curved), make of mags? Are you holding the foregrip or the mags? Gouges in the mags or the brass?
The ZRS is a good licensed arm IMO. The crew at Zenith are great as well.

Hello retrodog,estesmonkey,thank you both for responding to my question,I appreciate it.

Mags are the 3 factory mags that came with it (curved),shooting using fore grip,I haven't shot it much because I don't want to cause any more damage to the gun have about 100 rds though it,as I look at the mags there is also a slight mark on the other lip as well.Is there a representative from Zenith here on the boards?

they will send you a label to send it back in for repair/replacement. They're good about that. For good measure, I'd make sure the sights are GTG before sending it back in.

Well,that might be a problem,I bought the one with the brace and its difficult to use the sights,I bought an MRO to use in their place at least until I can get a better brace.....at any rate what do you mean about checking them,as in them being able to zero or wether or not they are canted or not?

Really, what he should have said, and I'm just trying to be thorough here, is look for every true defect you can find. If you're going to go to the trouble of sending it back, you might as well get them to fix everything that is wrong with it. I don't mean to imply there is anything wrong with it, but it's just a good opportunity if need be.

yep. just make sure you can zero them to rule out sight issues. i had to send both of mine back one time for sight issues. They replaced both. It look a while, but no hassle really. Pretty decent CS.

It is NOT necessarily abnormal. I have seen dozens upon dozens of German MP5 bolt-heads with abrasion marks (some borderline gouges) caused by the feed lips of magazines. There is a lot of slop going on in that area--mag play, bolt-head play, bolt carrier play--that can cause the surfaces to make contact. As long as it goes into battery and does not sheer material from the feed lips, I would not be concerned.
