It didn't blow up, but didn't cycle effectively, accurate too. The 'tuning" phase commences tonight.

Awesome, or at least partially awesome.
How much did it cycle? Did it eject the spent cartridge?

Neither - I had a high end single shot rifle, gas block is literally.025 off in placement and the adjustment screw was one turn less than fully closed. Of all the steps required to complete, I am sure I have done two right the first time, the rest are multiple attempts. I knew going in on the first one that there would be some learnings, I was right on that

Just make the first shot count.
But then I guess thatís not the point of shooting an AR.
