    Ok I need help I have my AR built up in 7.62,I ran about 20 rounds threw it and I could not get it to feed a second round.im not sure if it's a clip issue ( new AR stoner) or if it's a gas block issue or a buffer spring.the feed ramps are cut, 9 out of 10 times the bolt sides over the round.any ideas or imput,I'm new to the AR frames so I don't really know where to start.

    OK 99% of the time a "failure to feed" malfunction to this type of operating system is magazine related. Give us some more info?

    What is the make of the weapon?
    What ammo are you shooting?
    What magazine are you using? Have you tried more than one magazine? Does it do it will all the magazines you have?
    Is the weapon NEW?

    I hope this doesn't start a pissing match but you said your new to the system. Its important to you know, that when we are talking about "AR pattern" rifles there is no commonality between manufactures for the most part in the non ar15 type. This is important to note when buying parts for your particular rifle, as there is a specific list of things that will work for your weapon. AR10 is a specific brand and build type and is often used to describe the larger pattern AR systems as a whole but is incorrect. Only Armilite makes the AR10 and they are not compatible parts wise with more than a few of the other systems out there.
