    1-11 twist so I am betting you can shoot pretty well and you are right, will be great for hunting. I have 4 or would buy it myself

    It wouldn't be selling at that price if the election had gone the other way.

    Any AR that jams can pretty easily be fixed, that is the beauty of them, simplicity

    well a buddy bought one. shot 4 different types of ammo thru it and it won't extract a fired case. extracts live rounds and the empty after it has cooled off, but won't extract when fired. bolt comes back and picks up another round and jams it into back of spent case. and no one will answer the phone.

    I got a 6.8 upper that does the same thing. I think it has to do with not being setup for the suppressor. It shoots fine without it but
    hangs up with it. I've noticed an extreme amount of blow back and the non-fired cases look like hell in the magazine.
    I guess the gas needs adjusting. Don't know anyone around here to do that. could someone here tell me how to do it myself ?
    I'm not scared to dive into it but just don't know where to start. I have all the AR tools

    buy an adjustable gas block and you can install it yourself

    Adjustable gas block and there are youtube videos to show you how to do it.

    You also need to know how it is gassed, rifle, carbine or middy and match a buffer and spring with it.

    Update: I got the adjustable gas block and it worked like a charm.
    The rifle was way over gassed and even worse with a suppressor .
    Completely stopped the double feed issue and the cartridges are
    not nearly as dirty after shooting about half of a mag. Thanks for the info
