The guy on the YouTube channel 8541 tactical has a series of videos where he builds one from scratch. May wanna check it out. Might a fewer your questions and some more. He's Lon winded at times but seems thorough.

Well I'm having trouble with feeding. Give you a background of the rifle. Upper, lower and bcg are Palmetto State. Barrel is a 18" X-Caliber and stock is a UTG 308 standard A2 stock with 308 length buffer and spring. Gas is a mid length non-adjustable. Trouble I'm having is fail to feed. With bolt locked back I can chamber the first round, fire and brass ejects and bolt closes. Pull trigger and "click", pull charge handle back and no round in chamber or ejected. Release bolt and another round chambers. For some reason it will not reload after I fire but will every time with the charge handle. It's like the bolt does not travel back far enough to pick up next round.

Does the bolt lock back after the last round is fired from the magazine?

Could it be a gas supply problem? As in not enough, maybe a larger gas port?

It's either the spring buffer combo or you need to get an adjustable gas block. It sounds like the gas pressure is not enough to push the bolt carrier far enough back to pick up the next round. I'll txt my gun builder.

This was my suspicion. Not being any kind of expert on the AR, I wanted to see the diagnosis from someone that knows more.

I spoke with my AR gun builder. He said it could be several things. He would have to diagnose in person. I'm thinking you buy an adjustable gas block and start opening it up until the bolt carrier stays back after you shoot it with single shots. Then load a mag with 3-4 rounds and see what happens. Do you use a suppressor?

I think it's either something in the gas system or a bad mag...

Load one round in the mag and pull the trigger. Does it lock back open?

Are you using multiple mags?

If this is something you put together yourself my bet would be the gas hole/block alignment is off. Check for gas leakage around the block on the barrel.
