The website is sold out and I can't find one anywhere.... Anyone know of a place that has them in stock (I don't care about the color)?
The only true operator induced, catastrophic malfunction I've seen in M4s was from a guy using the charging handle to release the bolt, which resulted in his double fed round riding up between the charging handle and the gas tube. He though it was a bolt override, so he chopped the handle forward and bent the gas tube.I like to be able to release the bolt either with the bolt release or charging handle...
I have experienced the horrid brass over bolt, and brass -v- charging handle.
Praise God it was only on the range!
Had to crack the upper and lower, and make diligent use of a multi-tool!
On the range only, I've not had either malfunctions with BCM.
Either the minutia of geometry change is preventing this, or God is smiling upon me.
Since some of our carbines have optics, I try to use the bolt release as much as I can.
You have the rest of your life to worry about getting that empty mag into your dump pouch.
I rather come home with no mags than be dead with a dump pouch full of empty magazines.
Until you get stuck in fight and realize they don't do ammo resupply with loaded magazines.
You can pick it up later, but the moment you run out of bullets and need more isn't the time for your training scars to kick in and worry about stuffing it in a dump pouch.
