DPMS Sportical Bolt Catch Not Working
I purchased this .308 Sportical in November brand new. Since, I have ran less than 100 rounds through it due to a different issue. Now the bolt catch won't hold the action open unless I hold the button down. If I let off and barely look at the gun, it slams shut. Can't find anything on this petty issue. Thinking I bought a dud... Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks

We recently had a thread on this but anyways, my DPMS AR 10 does the same thing. I got it used and it never worked. I haven't tinkered with it yet.When it is time to bury them it is time to dig them up.

Sounds like a worn/broken bolt catch - just drive out that roll pin and put a new one in - should fix your problem.

I just found this website / joined last night and 4 replies within 24 hours. I appreciate your advice guys. Let me know if you need assistance on fixing a Red Rider BB gun...

It's a pretty simple issue to diagnose. Does the bolt lock back easily with an empty magazine in it? Being only from November I would send it to them to do with if you aren't too comfortable doing anything on your own.

Have you replaced the stock?
My issue was the replacement stock had a cheek piece that ever so slightly interfered with getting a full stoke on the bolt with the charging handle.
Nothing says 'I love you' like a box of hydroshox.

Hhhmmm.....I've had this same problem develop just a few days ago. But I have installed the Phase 5 (B.A.D. lever). I am going to reinstall the factory catch and see if that fixes the problem. A close visual inspection of the Phase 5 does not show any wear.....I have only fired about 200 rounds total thru this rifle, of which, 90 rounds with Phase 5. We'll see...............SOGWAG
