You have to put in the penny, or better yet, a dime, or a washer.

What they don't say in the video is that the penny (try a dime) has to be thin enough that it blocks the spring, but not the central rod.  So it has to be thin, and it has to be seated all the way up or all the way down in the slot.

Awesome, that made all the difference.  Thank you.

I found it useful to have a 2nd pair of hands. My girlfriend easily punched out the pin while I pushed down to relieve the tension

I shot my 556 Tavor with a SilencerCo 300 Omega suppressor for a 300rd SIG Academy Rifle 102 class using Federal AE XM193 supersonic ammo. I had zero malfunctions. I had a gasketed port cover but forgot to seal the back of the rail and got a *lot* of gas in the face. I had to clean my eyewear a few times as I could barely see. And my face was black. Mid-way through a mag the ammo was very sooty - gas was blowing down the mag and everywhere.

Iíll swap in the ShootingSight extra spring to see if it helps recoil without malfunctions. Recoil *was* a bit bad and I came too far off target each round, so fingers crossed.

 I would care to venture that it is over gassing & moisture.

Hell if anything excess gas would protect the gun, no? Can't corrode if it's protected by a nice layer of carbon, right? I'd guess moisture worked it's way under the paint? and bubbled away

It happened in a single day shooting SIG Academy Rifle 102. I swapped the cleaned 556 barrel and frame over from the 300BO and shot 12rd to zero Saturday and then ~300rd Sunday at SIG.

After 1000+ rounds a few years ago with heavy rain to boot I had that with my SAR. Was a class at Academi.

Makes sense in a way since the bleed off is close by.
