Hi all,
I got my AMD65 today and the dust cover I think I am not putting it on right. In fact I can look the charging handle back and it will stay open but a friendly bump will push it forward again.
Am I dong something wrong?

If your dust cover is on and your bolt is sticking, 2 ways to fix it..
1 shoot a couple hundred rounds thru it and it should fix itself.
2 maybe your hammer is sticking up yoo high and needs to be grinded a lil bit.
Did you build it or buy it?

based on those pics, the dust cover isn't installed all the way on. It need to go forward about a quarter inch. the back of the dust cover needs to be infron of the rear lip of the rear trunnion, not behind it.

Take it back and have them file the hammer down.

It's pretty common, and it's unlikely there's anything fundamentally wrong. I'd second the suggestion to shoot a few hundred rounds and if it's still binding go back and have the shop give it a good deburring.

You're right. The guys at Valkyrie Arms just showed me the proper way:facepalm:


It now functions perfectly. The trigger is really nice and feels 5-6Lbs.
The interior when field stripping looks new and Valkyrie did an amazing job on overall finish
