Default New to the forum 1919 not right

I just built a 1919a4. Kmp setup on the internals. The gun without sear and trigger cycled perfect I just put in the seat and trigger adjusted headspace and went to shoot. The gun fires fine but every few rounds jams. With no ammo in I can recreate it. First the gun is dripping in lube. The problem is if I draw the action half open and release the action will not close. I can push on the bolt handle and nothing. If I back it up 1/4" and let go it slams closed. The only reliable way to cycle is to pull the bolt all the way back and release. I cannot figure out why if it's only mostly back or closed and half opened it will not close all the way. The barrel is still out and the bolt seems to be caught on something. Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Default I would...

I would start with the screw that goes through the cam that is on the bottom plate... Sometimes that screw that goes though the bottom plate to the cam gets loose or will protrude to far through the cam and the barrel extension hangs up with it...

As normal if you happen to have pictures sometimes they help... Welcome to the forum...

The way I had done a video in the past was to post it on U tube and then copy and past here?

hey so i took pictures but when i stripped the gun i think i figured it out
the rod and spring that attach to the accelerator had come loose and when i pulled our the trigger assembly part it popped right out. after reinstalling it all seems well. I will fire this next weekend and if it happens again ill check that part if it is fine i will be back. thank you all for your help so far.

Default There...

There you go... If the part pops out again you might replace that plunger rod... Sometimes they get to worn out...

Well I have put a few hundred rounds through and it hasn't happened again. Did have it happen once on reassembly but I hope I am good. This gun is a ton of fun.
