Egyptian Rasheed Ammo-ISSUE Question

I have a Egyptian Rasheed rifle. I Use Wolf WPA Military Classic 124 Grain.

I had a Gunsmith look over the rifle and he tested it. He said it worked with out any issue. He also set the gas valve correctly.

I also replace all the springs.

I load the rifle and charge it. The first shot goes off. Then i pull the trigger and nothing happens. I try to charge another round but the charging handle only goes back an inch. I have to take the mag out to get the round out. Then I load another round and pull the trigger. Nothing happens.

What ammo do you use and have you had this issue before?
What ammo should I use that will work?

"...set the gas valve correctly..." How do you know that? It'd be where I'd start. First thing would be a complete disassembly and reassembly though.
Change ammo to something that isn't steel cased. Put the original mag springs back in. And check the firing pin.
Spelling and grammar count!

I will do that and I hope to get back to the range in a few weeks to try it out. Thank you
