    Have you checked headspace with a set of gauges? After buffer mass, extractor spring, and action spring are addressed, all we are left with is chamber dimensions and gas port size in terms of troubleshooting items.

    I'm not trying to disparage Noveske (RIP, John) at all. But once we eliminate what is impossible, we are left with what is possible.

    I used a 5.56 Min/Max set of gauges when the rifle was built years ago. It is only recently having issues due to the suppressor (not really recently, more like within the last year of shooting it suppressed.) I gave up on suppressors for a while and left it in the safe when I would go out shooting. Now I am determined to get the gun to run reliably suppressed or not.

    Good on your for inspecting up front. We'll rule the chamber dimensions out, then.

    Well, I use a SpecWar 556 with great success. I get virtually zero port noise and my brass is virtually indistinguishable from unsuppressed brass unless you inspected them side by side. I've repeatedly been accused of shooting 300 supers by people who have suppressed 300 BO systems.

    But, to accomplish what you want, you're going to need to heavily regulate the gas and invest in the LMT e-carrier (which I think you did, right?). No way around it.

    But if I can has ZERO gas to face, nearly clean brass, and vanishingly low recoil using my can, you can too.

    Well, apparently LMT-E carriers are made of unobtanium.

    The place i ordered from notified me saying they have to special order it from LMT and have no idea how long it will take to get.

    LMT seems to have removed them from their website, and every other place that carries them online is out of stock.

    Looks like ill leave the special order open and hope i eventually get it?

    I got mine directly from LMT. Give them a call.

    Before you went on the Unobtanium shopping spree, did you try some different ammo?

    Not yet, I shoot on weekends, and work on weekdays...plus I don't pay a range to shoot, so I need to venture out into the desert. I will this weekend.

    Need it for this rifle or not, does not mean I cannot collect an enhanced carrier.
