    Chirping

    That's right, kind of like a bird.

    When I shoot my level 10 RT, sometimes there's a 'chirping' noise with the pop. What causes this?

    Do you have a crown point barrel? Some barrels resonate when the bolt spring compresses. What you hear is called "spring ping". It was really noticeable in mags with the original crown point barrels.
    Except for the Automag in front, its usually the man behind the equipment that counts.

    It just needed a little oil, went away. Nothing was wrong with it, no leaking, etc.

    I get this every time I install new carriers. Goes away on its own.

    I never heard a chirp caused by carriers and orings. Interesting.
