We're all familiar with "M1 thumb" and strive mightily to avoid it.
Query: when I insert an eight-round clip (the only size I have, at present), the bolt doesn't close. It catches the first round, but only moves forward about a quarter-inch.
Once I nudge it, it still closes with the familiar snap and then functions flawlessly.
Is it my technique? Not pushing the clip down with sufficient force? Not enough grease on the edges of the bolt cover?
Anyone have any thoughts on the matter?
