Troubleshooting

(Sometimes things just don’t work right)

All manufacturers design their products to operate under a wide variety of conditions. However, they cannot test every possible situation. We have complied troubleshooting information for products of various manufacturers here. These are by no means complete and we always recommend that you contact the manufacturer should you have any questions about their product. 

Information on these guides has been compiled from original manufacturer documents when at all possible which include Owners and Armorer manuals.

80% AR 15 Magazine

We are excited to announce the 80% AR 15 magazine. Since some people live in magazine restricted areas, we have designed the magazine to be either a 5 round, 10 round or 30 round magazine. We do not condone breaking laws and recommend that you seek professional advice as to the legality of using a high capacity magazine in your area.

At this time, we are still working on the details. When more information is available we will update this page. In the meantime, watch our informational video below.
