Re: ar bolt noise

Thanks for the reply. If I release the bolt slowly it fails to clear the round from the mag. The bolt just stops when trying to pick up the round.

When you get out of the truck, or even after you get to your stand...
Remove one round from the mag BY HAND
Insert the round in the chamber BY HAND
Ease the bolt forward until it stops on the case.
Finish seating the round in the chamber with the forward assist.
When it's fully seated...insert your mag and you're ready to roll.

I don't always clean my barrel between hunting trips, because it usually doesn't need it.
I ALWAYS clean my bolt, carrier and barrel extension, so that I never have issues quietly chambering a round.

Easy peasy.

Re: ar bolt noise

Your bolt will make less noise if u switch to mil tech weapons lube. I put it on my brand new m4 during my last train up. I swear it makes the big sound smooth as silk

+1. I chamber a round before I get out of the truck... when I remember to. Most of the time I do the hand load, then forword assist method as well.
