Built my first AR

I already fixed the scope on it and know I need a new one but my FIL gave me something for the time being. Wanna upgrade the handguard eventually but I bought a complete upper.

You should keep the scope mounts on only the receiver or the barrel shroud , not both.

Well went to shoot it today and it had problems. First shot failed to eject. Then it failed to cycle. When it did cycle it locked up and wouldn’t let me shoot or eject round. Sent it back to the company I bought it from and they sending me a new complete upper and changing out the keymod for mlok for no charge.

It’s called shootersgate. Saw they had stuff on gunbroker and a good amount of reviews so took the risk on a smaller company.
