    Mine start doing the same thing when I installed a new carrier. I think something in the new carrier is rubbing against the bolt. However, after a couple hundred rounds it only does it occasionally. Your bolt may not be coming back hard enough. That could be clogged gas vent holes in the barrel, too light a gas valve spring, or too light a shell. Are your empties kicking out at least 6 to 8 feet?
