Actually, No. When the bolt was designed a slightly over-sized firing pin hole was implemented, with the theory being better reliability. Especially for a battle rifle. I can say this. All of my DPMS Gen 2 308’s have been very reliable. Even the one I converted into a 6.5 Creedmoor. The ONLY issue I have ever experienced is with mags. The Gen 2 rifles love Lancer mags. Magpul, not so much.
