hey guys. so ive just be wondering how hard is ya'll bolt release to press. mine i've given up using all together and now i just reach for the charging handle instead. reason being is mine i just cant use one finger. heck even rolling my hand forward and using my thumb is a pain in the ass. i thought over time it would break but i was wrong. AND no its not a strength issue everyone who touches my rifle has the same issue. is there a way to loosen it up a tad? is anyone else having this gripe?

That's odd. I've never had a problem with mine.

I use mine petty and notice its slightly harder than eighty but both are harder with the supplied mini mag versus my gi magazines. I see what you mean though. It is difficult to depress.

mine is pretty easy, at first it was a huge pita but after a few hundred rounds it was alot nicer
+1

Mine was almost a thumb only at 1st. Now, it's very easy with the trigger finger.

Never had any trouble with mine. It's obviously stiffer than a BAD lever, but it's never been very difficult.

Just picked up mine yesterday and with dry fire manipulation I have to use my thumb. Its extremely hard to push. I figure I will sit down with it and do it a 100 times or so to loosen it up.

my new coyote one is a pita compared to my old black one
Hmm. Maybe it's an old vs. new (pre-recall vs. post-recall perhaps) issue. Mine was bought second hand and was pre-recall. I never had that issue, but I've handled some in store that were noticeably more stiff.

Well, after a bunch(100+) of dry firing(still need to get to the range), my acr is loose as a goose(serial #bl05xxx coyote brown).

Mine is brand new and I noticed it is a bit tough. I just got one of the limited pmags and was trying it out when I noticed the bold release really sticks. But it seems like it'll get broken in after some use.

maybe, my serial number is 3000+ but it also is almost brand new, im going to put the coyote lower on my sbr and see if i can break it in some
