I just got everything expect for my Laylax Spring guide. Now, when I pull the bolt back, It just slides back, no click or anything. I seriously have NO idea what this is, and I know my rifle really well...

A little more detail? (I'm assuming this is the ASR). So your bolt handle works? and when you pull it back the sear isn't engaging the piston? What parts have you upgraded inside the bolt?

Edit: The reason I ask, when I installed my 210 spring that last 1/4" was really hard to get used to initially. So what spring did you put in?

Also, a lot of times I forget to put the spring guide retainer back up (not sure what this is called exactly, the part you pull down in the trigger set to remove the bolt), so if there is not spring tension even, that is probably the problem.

Have you got any spring spacers in place?

I had one in my rifle, but it snapped. So I put a new one in and then the bolt wouldn't cock.
I took it out and compared it to the old one, and the new one was about 1mm longer. I took off that 1mm and put it back and it worked.

So if you have a spring spacer, you might want to check that out.

Yep, thats the same one I have, so it should work. Take your bolt apart and remove the spring. Re-assemble the whole thing outside of the gun (bolt on top of the trigger box) and then pull back to see if the piston even reaches the sear on your trigger box.

IF it reaches then you have a problem with the spring.

If it DOESN'T reach, then you have a problem with the spacer/piston.

... Come to think of it, you said you have everything BUT the PSS spring guide? I have a feeling (can't confirm since I don't have the stock guide anymore) that the PSS guide is shorter, since the space inside the piston is probably shorter to allow for the removable piston head... i.e. the stock guide is too long.

Also, your cylinder could be cocked weird, and not letting the sears hold back the piston.

EDIT: I would just try to open it up, and reassemble, you probably forgot something, or something is cocked weird. Usually when you reassemble, it will go away.

Okay, I have had this happen on my SD700 before. So, you need to take the bolt off, and then look at the spring itself (this is just a hypothesis as my gun fixed itself and i just noticed that the spring can move inside the bolt) see if the part the sear catches is out of place or if something is missing. If so move the spring. If you don't want to take any chances just take it apart and try again.
