Sounds like a cook off to me.

Sorry I’m late in responding Maddmax, I guess this thread slipped by me.

Ok, how many rounds fired that day? This was the first group of five.

How clean was it? Hmmm, probably 100 rounds down the tube prior to that day. As far as cleaning the FCG it’s not something I break down, nor do I know anyone personally who does.

How old is it? It was made in ‘74.

The fix was a new FCG, my suspicions pointed to the disconnector but parts being as cheap as they are everything went. Prior to reassembly I over-layer the old /new parts, you’d be hard pressed to see any discernible difference between any of the parts that make up the FCG with the naked eye.

My point is not everything that happens at the range is neglect.......sometimes things happen that our out of our control regardless of what you do.
