Recently I have noticed a large amount of blow back in my AR 15 magazine. What would cause this ?
Please describe the issue better. As a gunsmith, when I think blowback, I am generally referring to a specific operating system. What actual symptoms are you experiencing?
Like unburned powder? Handloads?
i found Wolf to be very dirty
Shooting with a suppressor? They get dirtier quicker.
The best way I can describe it is. When you load a mag with new ammo the ammo is clean and shiny after a few ( 2-3 ) the ammo in the mag is very dull and has a light residue that can be cleaned off with a rag. I could be going nutz and this could be common in the AR platform.
If this is your first AR, I'm not surprised you are shocked by the amount of carbon blown into the action. I know, as an ex bolt gun shooter, I was.
Yes it is However I never noticed it before must be a knucklehead moment.
if you are shooting without a suppressor I would be alarmed.. you may need a heavier buffer and or heavier bcg to keep your bolt locked up longer, but if you are shooting suppressed.. Its normal.
Today I had gunsmoke coming out the bottom seam of the CPD mag in my 11” 7.62x39 pistol while shooting suppressed. Good times . Never have seen it shooting non suppressed. Maybe way over gassed?
It's a AR-15.
shooting with a suppressor?
OP, there are a lot of unanswered questions that may tell the tale.
