    Try some different ammo first.

      i would pull it out of the stock and check to make sure the op rod runs smooth , the op rod guide has not moved , the gas piston goes back and forth when the rifle is tilted . make sure the recoil spring is not bent or binding .
      also when the trigger assembly is out of the gun make sure there is no binding in there .

        Do you oil or grease the piston, or run it dry?

            i usually lightly coat those parts with a little spray-on EEZOX and wipe excess off for storage. I've shot my M1A's right after and no issues there with piston/gas system/cycling

                Maybe I should have gone higher. I was thinking in terms of current prices. I forgot some of you guys could supply the invasion of Normandy with your stocks.

                  The ejector may be out of spec and pushing down on the cartridge. The only remedy is to take about the entire gun and rebuild it to proper fitment.

                  M1As are expensive for this exact reason, they require very precise hand fitting to work properly and it seems yours was rushed.

                  Send it back to springfield and they will take it apart.

                  Also, Ill give you 2000 round of 9mm for it.

                  Do you want Federal or S&B? 115g or 124g?
