    Not an issue by any means - just wondered if anyone else experienced this
    The 2 issues we've seen:

    1) The front pivot pin retaining spring needs to be trimmed about 1/3 of an inch as the hole is not deep enough in the original design. Not a biggy.

    2) The bolt catch retaining screw cannot be tightened all the way or it binds the bolt catch. Adjust it out till the bolt catch moves freely and leave it. It won't back out.

    Would this be the cause of the bolt not staying back when charged? When attempting to chamber a first round, my bolt won't catch with some of my P-Mag Gen 2 magazines, while others are fine as are 10/10 cross and my older OEM Colt mags from my AR.

    Do you mean holding open after the last round or manually bringing the bolt back? Could be... does the catch move freely?
    What are you using for a bolt catch? Do you have a Phase 5?

    Lots with this issue above. Seems some charging handles work and some donít. They pull the bolt back 1/4Ē less then an ar does. As the receiver is different lengh then an ar. Nothing to do with mags. The bolt catch can not engauge as the bolt is still in way and not pulled rearward enough.

    Manually bringing the bolt back. I have 12 Magpul Gen 2 mags and about half of them do work, while the rest don't. I've tried 2 charging handles but will try the charging handle from my Colt AR and see if that works.

    Not sure what a Phase 5 is. The bolt catch is from a TNA build kit.

    Sorry I have not put mine together but I have the DPMS LPK and it says nothing about a bolt catch retaining screw (maybe its there i just not sure). Do I have to purchase separately?
