    Uzi gunsmithing help

    I built up a semi carbine with a McKay receiver and semi bolt 16Ē barrel and permanently attached wood stock and semi lower and I canít get it to feed or fire

    Is there anyone I can get to get this running and also perhaps refinish it?

    Too little info, is it feeding the round, if it is does it make at least a small dent in the primer? When you cock the bolt back on an empty gun and press the trigger does it just click?

    Take the top cover off, remove the spring and firing pin assembly, just leave the bolt in. Insert mag and move the bolt forward and see if it strips a round off from the mag.

    All of my feeding, failure to fire and ejecting problems turned out to be an extractor that was too long.
    You can check by putting a shell case (fired case if it's an open bolt gun) into the bolt face recess and seeing if it's held flat against the bolt face. If it sits in the bolt face at an angle the extractor needs to be shorter.
    I'd check that first before entertaining thoughts of trimming or reshaping the claw.
