My bolt doesn't lock back after the mag is emptied.  It does this firing slow on semi-auto and in full-auto.  Shouldn't it lock back after mag is emptied?

Yes it should lock open when the mag is empty.  Be sure your hand is not touching the bolt release when firing.  Does it lock open when you push the bolt release up while holding the bolt open?

This was happening in both full and semi auto.  Yes, I was emptying entire mag.  I wasn't firing that fast though when I was doing semi-auto...about 1 round per second.  I gave it a good cleaning last night, and will test it again this weekend.

Edit...and yes, it does lock open when I push bolt release up

Took the gun apart last week and gave it a thorough cleaning.  Over the weekend it performed flawlessly and bolt locked back everytime.  Thank for the help all =)
