Default AR14 "Jam"

My AR has a live round in chamber and gun won't let me eject it. I can pull extractor back about an inch and the round will slide out of barrel, but chamber won't open any further. Also, safety will not engage. Any ideas, or know anyone that will look at this for me? Thanks.................... Bob 850.393.2285

Can you seat the casing/extractor? If so I'd touch it off and then work on it.

I had something similar happen at Oak Ridge gun range once when my AR10 had gotten back from being cerakoted...shame on me for assuming the guy had cleaned my gun up. I went and got one of the attendants and I'm pretty sure he was able to get it out by splitting the upper/lower.

Do you have a picture of your AR-14 just in case we are thinking its a AR-15 and giving you bad advice?

Donít do this if you have a collapsible stock.

And donít do this if you donít know what youíre doing. Itís a crude technique for when you donít have tools or knowledge available. It tears shit up.

The first thing Iíd do is take out the rear take down pin to split the lower and upper, so I could verify thereís not anything obstructing the buffer and spring from moving unrestricted in the tube.

It would be unusual for there to be something in the chamber preventing the round from coming out unfired. Firing it in this condition wouldnít be my first option either, probably not even an option Iíd consider at all. Any gunsmith should be able to handle this in a few minutesí time.

Default AR15 not 14

sorry y'all, I'm just now getting back. Sorry for the typo, it is a DelTon AR 15 M4 with an adjustable stock. I'll try the ideas in the post and get back. I apologize for the lack of communication and typo...... Bob
