Jam

Last weekend at the Nations Gun Show I bought the JR Carbine that I wanted.

I got the .45acp version that takes the Glock mags. I am putting together a post about the carbine now.

Today's post is about a jam I had with the JR. I had one jam in the first 100 rounds. Not bad. And it happened with a mag that was not an original Glock mag. I will post about that piece of crap later too.

The ejector didn't grab the round but the rifle fully cycled and hammered the next round right into the ass end of the previous round.

The spring in the bolt action is pretty stiff and as you can see in this photo it hammered the bullet back into the casing.

The jam was easy to clear. The ejector grabbed the shell on the next cycle and I found the round when I was cleaning up.

--I wonder if it would fire. I am so not trying it...

cool! You bringing it on Saturday?

Looks like the case is bulged on the impacted round.

Looking forward to reading the post later on your new gun.

Andy is right about the bulge. I'm not *sure* it would chamber. If it did, I'm sure it would go bang, quite possibly followed by BOOM.

Got a puller? Knock that puppy apart.

I will bring it on Saturday! I put a cheap dot scope on it for now. I am planning on getting a set of Magpul flip up sights and then another EOTech.

You need to run about 500 rounds through it for break in. Maybe more.

Do you reload? Jesus. That takes a lot of force.

Wow. Don't see that every day.

I would crush the case with some channel locks and throw the round in the trash. Firing that could potentially hurt the gun or the shooter.
