Bolt Gap - Cocking tube gap check for builders and buyers. by BATTLEMENT ARMS
Whether you are building a Delayed Roller Blowback rifle, or buying one. It is important to know howto check cocking tube gap and bolt gap against each other. We all know that bolt gap is crucial tooperation and safety of the DRB's, CETME or Hk. But, sometimes we fail to realize or remember thatboth work together. On a properly assembled or functioning rifle, as bolt gap decreases with normalwear, cocking tube gap decreases by the exact same amount. Many times, when buying a DRB that iseither used or has been assembled improperly, the bolt carrier can be bottoming out on the cockingtube support, creating false bolt gap and doing damage to the rifle from the bolt carrier impacting thecocking tube support during firing. So, the buyer or builder can check the bolt gap and it appears tobe fine, but if he didn't check the cocking tube gap, he can find out too late that all is not well. Myadvice is that when checking bolt gap the first thing that should be checked is proper cocking tubegap. It does no good to check bolt gap if the bolt carrier is bottoming out on the cocking tubesupport.In the following pics, I try to show how the process works so it can be used by both builders andprospective buyers who may not understand all the crazy terms and actions we DRB nuts blabber onabout.First do a quick look to make sure that the charging lever is fully seated against the cocking tube,and is fully latched over the detent stub.

Next,
Remove the magazine
, and make sure the safety is up in the fire position. On a CETME thesafety being on will prevent the bolt from being fully opened, on an Hk it doesn't matter. Pull the bolt all the way back and lock it.When you start to pull the charging handle, the lever should be loose and come out away from therifle with no resistance to about 1/2 inch, about enough to get a finger under neath the lever to pullagainst it to unlock the bolt.

You should be able to lever the charging handle out to a full 90 degree position and feel the boltunlock. The force necesary should take no more than 1 or two fingers, but it should be pretty stiff atfirst until the lever unlocks the bolt. You should be able to pull the charging handle back with one hand. It's pretty heavy, ( 20 to 25 lbs.)but you should not feel any excessive dragging or feel any obstructiuons until the charging handle isall the way to the rear.
