    Trigger not resetting

    Hello, last year I inherited my father's ACR and it has an issue. That gun will fire, eject the brass and feed in a new round but, the trigger will not reset unless I pull the bolt back. It's also missing it's gas regulator. Does anyone have any ideas on the rifles issues and how I can fix them.

    1st, you need the gas regulator. Not sure how it’s cycling at all without it.

    Well no shit it's not working without the gas regulator! Get that replaced and you should be good.

    Sounds like however its actually cycling without the regulator is short stroking it and not cycling the carrier back far enough to reset the fire control group. As already mentioned, start by getting one of those. Bushmaster should sell you one, I believe they are around $95 from what I've read

    Couldn't be; the hammer is reset LONG before the bolt moves far enough back to eject OR pick up a round. But then again, it shouldn't be possible for the bolt to cycle at all with no regulator. Nothing about this makes sense; how is it cycling at all without a regulator, it should be a bolt action without one.

    You are dumping about 90-95% of the gas out of the rifle. If you need a regulator I stock them at any given time. They are 73 shipped to you for one.

    I think I figured out how the regulator was misplaced.

    It looks like you've confirmed the regulator is missing. I'm not see anything that tells why it was it is missing. Bought a new one yet? Part number F1009209.
