556 issue

I bought a Ruger 556 and shot it for the first time today. After 3 mags the slide ejector is jammed and i cant pull the slide back. I tried to field strip to see what was wrong and i cant break it apart. Has anyone had this issue and know how to fix??

1. Are you referring to the AR556?
2. When you say slide ejector, are you referring to the bolt carrier?

If the answer is yes to both, it sounds like you have a case stuck in the chamber. If this I the case, try to gently tap the charging handle with a soft mallet to loosen the bolt. A word of caution though, I have bent charging handles doing this and had to replace. If you're unsure call Ruger and send the rifle in.

Is there a live round in the chamber? Is the bolt carrier group all the way forward? If the bolt carrier group is partially extending back into the buffer tube you will not be able to open it. Be extremely careful if there is a live round in the chamber.
