Folks,
We now have our premium Bolt Carrier Groups, treated with Robar's NP3 coating, available for sale on our website! We have used these in our rifles for some years now, and we have been very pleased with the ease of cleanup, and how well the carbines run with minimal lubrication compared to a standard parkerized BCG. We have had many requests in the past, but we simply couldn't get enough BCG's to supply demand. Now, we have caught up a bit, and with increased deliveries from Robar, we are able to offer these for sale.









The Wilson Combat AR-15 complete Bolt Carrier Group [made for us by Microbest, a Mil-spec contractor ] is machined from the correct Mil-spec steel for increased strength and includes tool steel machined extractor with upgraded spring/insert and is Magnetic Particle Inspected for fail-safe reliability under extreme use. This bolt carrier group will enhance the performance of any AR Platform rifle and is the perfect start for your next custom rifle build.

The hardened gas key is secured to the carrier via USGI grade fasteners and properly staked to exceed normal specs for proper gas system function.

For more information, or to purchase, please visit this item on our website at....

The carrier seems to be AR15 and not M16 type, right? Is the firing pin shrouded?

Maybe I'm seeing things, but is the carrier key cracked where the staking was done? MIM key?

born2die,
It is a "Ar15 Enhanced" carrier. It has a shrouded FP, but is not as heavy are a Full Auto carrier. Thanks for the interest

Eight,
It is not a mim gas key. It is Chrome-Moly steel. That is not a crack in the gas key.

I see that an excellent staking job is also included in the $250 price range.

I was in the fun store handling a WC AR today and noticed the nice BCG inside. I like the dark gray look - I have a chrome young BCG that I love, but geez it's got some bling to it. This is a much more subdued coating, but still looks / seems great.

Bummer it's $250... $200 and I'd be there...

It it enhanced like the eqiv of LMT enhanced? What is NP3 coating? Similar to EXO? Do you make this for an M16 BCG?

There is a great explanation of NP3 if you click on the link.

Right now we are only selling Semi Auto BCG's.

The manufacturing tolerances and specs are "enhanced" -its not a redesigned part. We did not reinvent the wheel, but our semi auto carrier is not heavier than the early Colt style semi auto carrier, with all the material removes from the bottom, tail end of the carrier. It also features a fully shrouded firing pin, like the full auto carrier. Thus, it is the AR15- semi auto enhanced carrier, not the lighter weight, non-firing pin shrouded semi auto carrier used by some makers.

We also obviously feel that the NP3 coating enhances the functioning[ over the long term ] of the carbine

I edited my post above to clarify. Basically, there are a few variations of semi- auto carriers. We used the AR15 Enhanced carrier, which is closest to a full auto carrier. Shrouded FP channel, closed bottom at the rear, but this closed area is just a bit shorter than on a FA carrier. Then we NP3 coated it

I'd like to have this for my firearm, but I use a piston system with a special carrier.

Would you sell the bolt/extractor, firing pin, firing pin retainer and cam pin? Basically everything except the carrier and carrier key.

Also do you undercut the locking lug directly opposite the extractor slot?

Rosenbudteg,
Forgive m e if I am missing something, but I'm not sure what feature you are talking about? The ejector is opposite the extractor, and the cut for the ejector is standard. Am I missing something?

I'm not too sure myself. But another manufacturer selling BCGs claimed "All Bolts will feature an undercut of 0.020” on the one locking lug directly opposed to the extractor slot. This has been shown to relieve the stress on the two locking lugs next to the extractor slot and greatly extends bolt life."

I don't know if this is true or if it's just hooey, but I figure it can't hurt... might help.

Brahmzy,
We JUST start selling these, and as far as I know, we have not shipped any to any of our dealers yet. I'm doing my best to let ARFCOM readers know as quickly as possible when new products are available. We have not had enough coated BCG's in the past to offer any for sale individually. So if you want one, just head to our website, or give the guys in customer service a call

Rosenbudteg,
I'll check with engineering about that spec, but I've never heard it mentioned. Or maybe its standard, and I've not heard it mentioned before
