What causes the receiver to crack? Does the nylon bushing (breech bolt buffer)affect the breakage?-Thanks, Jerald Ware

It can be part of the cause. It can also be a weak main spring which allows the bolt to slam the receiver. Metal fatigue can also be a factor. Gas ports in the barrel could have been enlarged to allow low power loads to cycle the action and then full power loads fired in the gun causing the damage. I am sure there are a few more. HMB
