Hey guys I need some help!  So I've had my lm4 for a bit now and randomly if I have to bolt locked back and I move the gun around a bit the bolt will close by itself and then I have to press the bolt catch to reset it. Is my bolt catch just worn down and needs replacing or is there anything else wrong? Please help!

If you're closing the bolt by depressing (or slapping) the bolt stop the edge front of the bolt carrier will wear into a rounded shape and not hold it tightly to the rear,  There are threads on how to fix this and someone will come along and link a couple of them.

Thanks chuck! I just looked at it and noticed it was really worn, I have some extra money I think I'll just order another bolt carrier and maybe a extra bolt catch just in case. Thanks again!
