I imagine your biggest problem involves failure to feed

Probably a bad magazine, or magazine spring.

Seems to be inserted correctly. Maybe a defective firing pin?

Your problem is that you tried to feed it singly. If you would have just loaded it in the mag and fed it from there, you wouldnt have had an issue.

I was thinking the mini threw up the white flag and said "I isn't firing this." If that hadn't happen your shoulder would be flying a white flag to its use anymore.

Seems like the chamber is undersized by a thou or two?

Did you slingshot the bolt, or ride it gently forward? I think with the 50 BMG/Mini combo, you're supposed to slingshot it to prevent failure to feed.

Its either that, or you forgot to do your basic preventative maintenance....I think the manual calls for fresh hydraulic, coolant, and blinker fluids every 500 hours of operation.

Thanks for tips. I hit it with a drop of Mobile 1 and that did it.

But I cut my finger on that OTF blade in the trigger card pretty bad.

Here's your problem: I think you need to replace the rear sight with a Tech Sights one.

Or maybe your gas bushing is too robust...
