Are you saying that the first round will extract and eject but the next round won't enter the chamber? If so, being push feed, I don't think the extractor has anything to do with feeding the next round. Are you pulling the bolt back and letting go, letting the bolt slam forward on its own? If you try to ease the bolt forward with your hand it will jam every time. Just pull it back and let go. See if that helps.
Have you done anything to your magazine? Like cleaning? They have to be reassembled correctly or headachs will follow. Is the magazine seated fully? Are you using BX-1 Magazines?

mags are all spotless and an extra 1/2 turn put in i don't believe the mags are the problem.I got a chance to fire a few rounds this weekend and i don't know how but the gun seemed to work i had a couple of missfires but that could be the cheap ammo.it seems that the gun works better when it cycles itself and not by hand i wll keep you all posted thanks for your helpRON

After adjusting your magazine, did you back the allen screw out 1/8th turn? If you don't back it out the mag will act as if you didn't tension the spring enough. The rotor will bind between the front of the mag and the six sided nut. Some back the allen screw out until it clicks (1/8th-1 turn). You can try it and see if it feeds better than 1/8th turn and go from there.
