    Bolt locking lugs are exposed, but the bolt assembly won't separate from the barrel assembly... strange.

    If you can remove both those from the stock I wound do it, so the hammer group isn't hanging anything up.

    Then see if you can separate the bolt assembly form the barrel assembly. My guess is you still have something in the chamber, that's stuck.

    Proceed with caution.

    Finally did it. Here are pics of what I got.





    I'm still jot sure what happened. I was able to clean it, put it back and will try adverse setting when I go back to the range next week. Thanks for all the help.

    The primer missing from the casing is interesting......

    Not the expert here, but is anyone else thinking this case was short-stroked, failed to eject, then got slammed/jammed awkwardly back into the chamber at a weird enough angle it chewed up the case neck like that? Accessdenied - are you sure the primer isn't rattling around in part of the rifle? And out of curiosity, what ammo is that?

    Well it is a LC case so it can reasonably assumed to be factory 5.56 unless it was reloaded.

    The primer missing has got me a little concerned especially if this was a reload.

    Please provide information on the ammunition, source, purchase date, lot, everything that you can let us know about it. Projectile weight etc etc....

    If it was a reload, case trim length, powder load, powder type, AOL, projectile type, and most of all, who reloaded it?

    @HK SD9 Tactical, pardon my ignorance here. What concerns you about the missing primer? I can understand that it is a concern, but am curios as to the reason. Though I don't own a Tuna, I am still interested in all the information I can get for when I do get the fundage to purchase a Tuna of my own.

    By The By, the L.C. refers to Lake City Arsenal, correct?
