Hey guys so i tried out my new bcm bolt in my sig m400 after i checked it with a field gauge. it did not close so i shot 200 rounds. does that mean all is well and the bolt will work?

well just came from a friends house and used his no-go and go gauge. tried telling him we had to take out the extractor but he insisted on not doing so so i got a no go gauge stuck in my rifle and had to mortar the gun to get the damn thing out. i hate jams like that....
by the way can mortaring the rifle (jamming the buttstock on a solid surface and at the same time pulling the charging handle) damage the rifle. in the military we did this but the rifles were junk. im much more picky about how i treat my home rifle.

It shouldn't hurt anything but no one wants to make a habit of it. There are lots of pictures and videos of bad things happening when you mortar a weak receiver or forget to collapse the stock before whacking it.

If there was any damage you'd probably know it by now.

BTW, the ejector should come out too when you check headspace.

ya i feel comfortable with the ejector in the bolt. you can feel it depress when you push the bolt in. does mortar put stress on the lower receiver and the butt stock?

well it didnt do it very hard and i see many cases where it is affective. shouldnt of let that dumbass chamber it with the extractor. i didnt see any visible damage so i guess its good to go.
