Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Has anyone here tried the newer plastic

Inch/metric magazines yet? I'm currently building a Chilean(Sarco) kit and used a new DSA upper receiver and thought I'd try a mag in it after I put the mag release and bolt stop in. The plastic mag was very tight!

the one thing I know after collection guns for over 25 years is to never buy commercially US made military mags! it'll be like throwing away your money, as they will never be as good or last as long as the real deal.

Continued to play with this and saw the mag catch spring wasn't in it's seat took a small Craftsman flat bladed screw driver and pushed it into it's seat now works as it's suppose to.

The Moses magazines have worked in my FAL's, and other FAL's that I have tried them in. Including a full auto G1 I have fired using a Moses magazine.
