I just built my first 1919A4 and it is set up for .30-06. I am completely new at this. The barrel lock spring in my kit is the square notch israeli one and it is not engaging on the barrel (is it suppossed to ride on the notches or on the threads, it doesn't quite touch either.) I think that it is giving me head space problems when I shoot it by letting the barrel turn. The first 30 rounds shot fine then it started not eject the links, feed reliably or reset the trigger. The tip of the spring is not broken, so I don't know why it won't hold in place. Where can I get a GI spring or should I try to modify this one? Am I barking up the wrong tree could there be another problem? Any help appreciated.
