Hi, this is Caleb Kelly and right now we're going to be talking about how to clear a jam. This is called immediate action, and this has to do when you have a round that failure to fire, or like a problem like that. So, you're shooting, you're shooting, and you hear a click, it doesn't fire, you slap up on the magwell or on the magazine, inside magwell, make sure it's seated in the magwell properly. You pull the charging handle all the way back and observe the round eject out. You let go of the charging handle, not riding it forward, just let it go, it'll slam the round into the chamber. Then, you hit the forward assist, and the forward assist, when you hit that, make sure that the bolt carrier and the bolt seats the bullet, or grabs onto the bullet, the extractor, so that it's seated properly into your chamber. And, then you're back in action, ready to fire. Hopefully it cleared the jam.
