I can stick in my finger and push it further back so the bolt catch can engage. Doing this I've determined its not a buffer issue. It's a the receiver to too short to allow proper movement of the charging handle issue. The receiver itself (total length of upper and lower) is slightly shorter than a standard ar15.

    From what i have gathered so far Gen 3 Pmags will not function in their stock form with this set, but if the Magazine Over Insertion tab on the back is filed down then it will work; Has anybody tried out this fix? Trying to gauge whether or not i'll have to return/sell all the gen 3s i bought new for this set.

    Any issues with the bolt catch? I'm excited to get a barrel for mine.

    No I have not, I'm using a TNA butterfly charging handle with a brownells lightweight BCG and armaspec captured buffer system and I have no problems locking the bolt back
