Looking for some help figuring out why my rifle will not cycle. Open the bolt , insert magazine, pull trigger, bolt closes, gun fires but will not cycle to eject the fired round. Gas tube is clean, action rod and bolt will cycle forward and backward freely by tilting the rifle up and down with recoil spring removed as per manual of arms book. Barrel hole to gas tube is clear, adjusted to the smallest hole, hell I have tried all three. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Must be something so simple I have over looked.

Checked everything in gas tube alignment and piston spec, found that head spacing was to tight which would cause the bolt to bind after firing, will correct head spacing and try it  again tomorrow.
