Whilst messing about my MG, the bolt got stuck in the camming piece, and it won't disengage. I've tried pushing down the muzzle many times to no avail (goes down for only a few centimeters at most). Any help would be appreciated.

I haven't solved the issue yet sadly. I only got back from abroad yesterday night, and like I said in the first post, have visitors over (he's been here for a few weeks now, went on trips together, etc). I am terribly sorry I couldn't reply any sooner. I will get a more accurate description posted later today, as well as a picture or two which might help - though the angles make it hard to get anything worth getting on photo.
Will definitively also try the towel method mentioned here. Thanks for the advice everyone! This one has me puzzled to no end.flemgunner wrote:Silly question but did he forgot to install the charging handle? Ive done that before, and felt like an idiot
The charging handle was installed, though I think by pulling it as much as I did, it may have slid into an unintended position. Its not connected to the problem with the bolt being stuck - just me using too much force plus wear and tear I assume. I have spare charging handles, so this one doesn't worry me too much.

"The barrel bounces back so that it is in the forward position? Push the bolt carrier back in? In what? Do you mean you push it forward toward the front of the gun? Have you removed the grip?"
How about a picture far enough away to see the whole bolt? Is this a full auto or semi gun?

It's hard to see from the pictures, but the ejector bar seems to be in the correct position. Any ideas what went wrong? Even if it turns out I'll have to send it to someone more capable at this than me, I would like to know what not to do in the future.
