OK...

#1...The M60 FTL problem could be a spring problem...trouble is I'm a hands on technician...and I would need to see and feel the problem first hand...

#2...The Model 99m1 problem...again feeding from a tubular magazine...it could be anything...springs usually the culprit.

You took them both apart from what I gather by the pictures above...did you see any excessive wear on any parts...

If I had detail stripped mine, new springs would have been a must. How's the tubular magazine springs on both ?

Thanks Shooter13!

The tube springs seem Ok. I am reading everything on FTL issues and watching videos. I plan to pull the firing system on each and compare them. See if I notice anything different between the two; one made in '76 the other in '77. Then I plan to take apart the firing systems. Likely replace springs at that time at a mimimum.

Default Update

Removed the firing systems from each rifle(M60 and 99M1). Disassembled the 99s using online guidance from Arrowdodger. Both the lifter and feedthroat were very worn compared to the M60. Replaced both worn parts as well as the buffer(had a new one on hand).

Parts on the M60 look great so maybe the tube spring is causing the feeding problem. Will keep exploring solutions until she is feeding correctly.

So back to the range to check out the M99A-1.
