  1. M16 registered reciever mag issue

    Well after spending some time looking at the receiver and comparing to known good examples with my calipers I found the issue and she's running great and all mags are working. Running my fingers over the mag catch externally I noticed the mag catch on the PAWS was sitting higher than the other receivers which were sitting slightly under or even with the height of the receiver. Internally was the exact opposite where the main body of the mag catch would protrude slightly on working receivers but was not doing such on the PAWS. Measuring the depth where the mag catch is inserted I find a normal receiver is ~.173 deep and the PAWS was only .149. The cheapest and easiest way to test was to take some material off a mag catch and test in the PAWS. I took .05 off a mag catch so it would seat deeper and reinstalled and all seemed well. Shooting today verified even my loosest mag staying in under auto fire with hundreds of rounds. Not a single mag retention issue today and only one failure to feed with hundreds of rounds of various ammo fired which very well could have been an anomaly. So to sum up today was a good day with the only bummer being the CMMG 22 kit was not wanting to cooperate at all.
  2. Uzi advice for buyer please!!

    Sorry to change the direction of the thread but I have a question for Mike. Mike you stated above " I have only seen 4 machine guns that could not be fixed, ONE M-16 and 3 UZI BOLTS ", please tell what the issue was with the M16 that could not be corrected?
  3. So after the long wait my PAWS/OLY registered receiver is home. The first trip shooting was fine except for a specific magazine did not want to stay in the gun while firing. Second trip, same thing with C-products mags but HK and PMAG magazines seemed fine. Took it out Sunday and damned if no magazines want to stay in the contraption longer than a shot or two, even in semi-auto. I tried swapping out the mag catch the same day and the symptoms continued. Of note the mag catch I swapped in as a spare was old. The gun runs like a sewing machine when the mags stay in place. I'm about to head to the garage and start measuring against a know good receiver and various mag catches with my trusty calipers looking for answers. Any ideas or hints would be appreciated. Worst case if the magwell is out of spec is that something that can be corrected/shimmed? Thanks, Chris
  4. My stamp finally cleared for my PAWS ZX16A1 registered receiver M16 clone. Looking to purchase a quality lower parts kit to freshen the receiver. Will be running a Geiselle SSF trigger but want a new selector, sear and other small parts. I've heard the Colt M16 parts kits are the way to go but am not having any luck finding a set. Anyone have any leads on a kit or recommendation on a good alternative? Thanks, Chris
  5. If I were to need work on my RR M16 I would give US Anodizing a try. M60 Joe recommended them to me when doing some previous work on a Registered Receiver to do the coating but I have heard and it’s listed at the contact link below they now do gunsmithing work on transferables. http://usanodizing.com/contact.htm
