Hello all, I am new to the M1A platform and have a question about a cycling issue. I recently purchased a Socom 16 and am having the worst time trying to get the rifle to cycle properly. I have taken the gas cylinder out and inspected it for carbon build up. After a thorough inspection ot appears to be very clean inside and out. I also inspected the guide rod and it appears to be in good condition and clean as well. I'm using surplus m80 ball ammo and it refuses to cycle. I have to manually charge each round. Could it be the magazine I'm using? Any info would be helpful. Thanks in advance!
