Easy fix to try 1st.

.45 ACP Chamber reamer rental is $50.

The chambers in a SMG must be loose.

Worked for me & my postie.

The deal hasn't been finalized.   But, we are probably going to meet in the middle of what I offered and what he wants.  He is going to be out of town for a week.  Things here move a little slow.  

 

The suggestion was to replace the internals, where would be a good place to find a non WH bolt?   I am not 100% committed to the gun right now.  But about 95%.  

 

I am ultimately looking for a shooter, not a collector.   This gun fits my budget, and my timeline.   Even if I do need to send it off to an expert.   I will keep you all posted.   Thank you for the advice so far.

There are a bunch of places you can pick up a GI bolt. Your best bet is probably GunBroker. Sometimes you will find them on eBay (not often). Waffenmeister might have as well. Places like IMA, Numrich (gunparts), and Sarco sometimes will have, but they are all out of stock now. There's probably more places I can't think of right now. All the above places are good for other GI replacement internals as well.

Thank you Andrew.   I am possibly going to buy an entire parts kit as well.

Meeting up today to fill out my form 4.   Got my picture and fingerprints taken care of yesterday!   I plan on taking pictures today.   I am on pretty good terms with my dealer.   So, I should be able to accumulate some replacement parts and trouble-shoot along the wait time.
