If you go to a site with this name you can find the way to make the A/O Carbines perfectly reliable.

projectsheepdog.blogspot.com

The author states what you will need are:

a) 280 and 400 grit sandpaper

b) lapping compound

c) an M2 magazine catch,

d) a Wolff recoil spring and,

d) an hour and a half of your time.

The author claims that $20.00 will cover all you need, but I think that it may cost more along the lines of $35.00 - $45.00 (if you don't have all of the goods at hand).

These will make your A/O Carbine completely reliable and serviceable in any situation.

I like this tutorial, and if you like it too, pass it along to others that can use it.

The only thing not discussed in the blog was his technique for smoothing the feed ramp and chamber. Obviously one should have some
sort of tool or support for the sand paper. It would have been helpful if he shared that info.

It's the same question all over again. WHY should one have to do this with a brand new carbine that you spent good money on?

Exactly. If it want feed FMJ right out of the box, it's just a case of poor craftsmanship.
