Lock back bolt, pull rear takedown pin, pivot upper upwards, deal with whatever snagged in the mag.
I've put definitely 1000+ rounds out of my ComGraf lower and only a couple of times had a FTF to clear.
In a severely bad FTF or FTE, I'd do the same as above, but if the mag was jammed and not feeding (which would be rare with a 10-rnd STANAG), you could easily pull the mag floor plate and drop it all out like a Mauser-type Ruger bolt rifle.

It does seem to happen more with larger capacity mags than 10 rounders. I tried some fab defense VZ mags in my VZ58 and they were shocking, the 10 rounder worked flawlessly though, saying that I found normal Ali VZ mags are the best there. But it sounds like you're got a plan. Have this for a rifle and Madsmith's FM16 and you have the rifle and short barrelled packages covered. May this Make IPSC Great in CT Again. MIGCT.

Just for Curiosity sake, how does the zero hold with optics when taken down?

Surprisingly good.  Optics on receiver.  Barrel locks in consistently.  Negligible shift at typical 50 yard engagement range for a pistol caliber carbine.

Long barrel, long buffer versions of the FM19 with Sig braces, heavy bull barrels, and flip up sights.  ;D
