Essential Skills: Remedial Action for the AR series
Last article we covered immediate action with the AR-15 series rifle. Immediate action is geared toward fixing simple ammunition or feeding problems, such as a light strike, bad primer, or a failure to feed. Conduct immediate action only once - if that fails to solve the problem, remedial action is needed. Remedial action clears more complex rifle malfunctions, such as double feeds, some failures to extract, and bolt overrides.
