Hey guys,
I am trying to figure out why the bolt catch is engaging everytime the bolt cycles. Regardless if the mag is empty, full, or not even in the gun. I rack it and the bolt locks back without a mag in it. It's the weirdest thing and I can't figure out how to fix it. Could the spring on the bolt catch be messed up? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

There is a spring that holds the catch down until the mag engages the bar #65.  It has come undone.  See part #110 in this link: http://store.kwausa...._S08V02_MP7.jpg
