View Full Version : FN-FAL PROBLEM-HELP!!!

July 21, 2000, 11:30 AM
My FN won't allow the bolt to slide out when I open it. Took it to the range, tried to lock the bolt back, wouldn't hold back, went ahead and fired a few rounds, then it started to jam. Broke open the action,,bolt slides halfway out, but something is blocking it from coming all the way out.
Any suggestions out there, I'd hate to take it a smith, and get charged $25. for a 2 second fix

First take the dust cover off and check for an object holding the bolt from coming out.I have a hunch that that a small peice of the bolt just below the extractor broke off of the bolt and hung the action up.I have seen this happen twice before.I haven't been able to determine why as yet.Try it and let me know if that is the problem.
Good luck
