I just got a new A5 Sweet Sixteen and when assembling the bbl/forearm the bbl will not seat in the receiver all the way. Anybody else have this problem?

Did you pull the bolt back before you tried to seat the barrel? Just asking.

Regards, Gordon

Post some photos. That'll make it easier to determine what the problem is.

Did you have the forearm installed on the barrel so its as far forward on the barrel as possible before you tried installing? If so, how big of a gap are you talking? I had the same question when I first got one because it does have a very slight gap; it doesn't quite snug up against the receiver like an original A5.

I experienced this as well. I just picked up a new sweet 16 a5 and what I found is to turn the cap REALLY tight on the front of the forearm and it will close the gap pretty well.
