So I decided to build myself a G&P WOC M4. Maybe not the route most people would take, but I wanted a challenge and something to do. I've put it all together, and bought myself magazines, but the thing wont feed. The magazines are King Arms, but it says it should work in a G&P. One mag wont let the bolt travel all the way forward, and the the other shoots, just doesn't feed. Any ideas on what this could be because of? Thanks.

I've heard KA magazines are crap, should have went the G&P route. It's most likely you're bolt and not your magazines though. Make sure to lube the hell out of your bolt. Are you sure you put it together correctly, and also installed it correctly?
(also did you lube your magazine spring/feeder up nicely)?
It would not so much be the bolt as the loading nozzle. Look at the bottom of the loading nozzle and make sure that the small arm that would push the bb out of the mag is there. The magazine not allowing the bolt to travel forward all the way is another issue. It usually stems from the rubber on top of the mag being to tall, and adding a little lube on top of the rubber should help. If it still doesn't travel forward; open the rifle and remove the bolt, then flip it over and look for wear signs or defects to the bolt. I had the same issue and found that my brand new bolt had a chip that caused it to not travel after each shot. Wear signs on the bottom of the bolt should be on the outer edges of the flat part, this is where it could make contact with a mag that is to tall. King arms mags suck, you are setting yourself up for a life of hell using them. G&P are a little better and more streamline so you will have less problems. The best gbb mags are pro-win, and are extremely reliable. The other way to go, is installing an angry gun 300% recoil spring and using a GHK co2 mag. The recoil is 3/4 of a real m4 and will always load your bolt, but you must have an aluminum loading nozzle before you do that or you will destroy your plastic loading nozzle. If you need a loading nozzle let me know. I have an aluminum 5ku with a NPAS system that I could let you have for 40.00. I hope this helps.
