    Default New AOM130 feed issues

    First time at range I had feed and eject issues. Releasing bolt would either not fully strip the cartridge from the mag, or the bolt would not fully chamber the round requiring a bolt assist action. When a round fired it may or may not eject.

    I took it home, cleaned and lubed it. No change.

    I am using the Korean surplus ammo, 15 rd factory mag, and a 30 rd KCI mag. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    First thing I would try is some quality name brand preferably American made ammo. At least at first to break the thing in.
    The ammo is even still available at least around these parts.
    Could be the Korean stuff is not up to full power and might be a bit crude dimension to cycle properly. It might work after you run the gun some.
    We have heard of early feeding issues so I could be wrong. I'd start with small quantities and see if it works.

    I have 100 rds of American Eagle on order. I have always had good luck with AE/Federal. I don't believe it's the ammo, as I have read numerous posts where there are similar FTF & FTE issues. We'll see. I'm going to solicit responses regarding the suitability of the Korean ammo. Iv'e seen positive posts, but I'll do my own query.

    Thanks

    Followup: I received the Federal ammo and gave it a whirl. Same exact behavior. I now have another email into service. I'm hoping they can just send me a new spring or something, as I'm sure they've encountered this before.
