    Does it extract alright by hand? If not I would disassemble and clean the bolt inside and out and make sure the extractor spring is free of cosmoline. If it extracts by hand with no problems I would disassemble the carbine and clean the gas system.

    Make sure the gas port is clean as well as the op-rod. Unless you cleaned the carbine yourself then there might still be some cosmoline in the op-rod channel. Also clean and inspect the gas piston; make sure that it fits and that there is no undue pitting on the piston.

    Sometimes it's as easy as that. Good luck.

    sometimes i can pull the bolt back with no problems and other times it can be hard to even pull the bolt back.
    and thanks for the tips. ill when i cleaned it i might not have done as good a job on the gas tube as i should have

    Does it have a grenade launcher? Check to make sure its not closed.
