FDE BCG……Because Flat Dark Everything!!

Posted on June 15th, 2016 by ar15news

Bravo Company Mfg just introduced a new version of their AR-15/M16 full auto BCG with a Flat Dark Earth IonBond finish. The IonBond is a low friction coating that will help reduce wear on your BCG, makes it easier to clean and protects our BCG from corrosion, etc. It also looks pretty stinking sexy!! Bravo Company Mfg BCG’s feature a C158 Shot Peened Bolt, tool steel machined extractor and ejector, BCM Extractor Spring and are HPT tested and MPI inspected. Take a look at the pics below, then head on over to www.BravoCompanyUSA.com to snag one of these beauties!

LANTAC .308/7.62X51MM “HEAVY” E-BCG

Posted on June 8th, 2016 by ar15news

LANTAC .308/7.62X51MM Enhanced Full Auto Style Bolt Carrier Group NiB Coated

LANTAC E-BCG™, Enhanced Bolt Carrier Group. AR10 Full Auto Style for increased mass and lock time. Our new BCG is precision machined from 8620 Steel with a 9310 Precision Hard Ground, Magnetically Particle Inspected Bolt. The entire carrier assembly is NiB, Electroless Nickel Boron coated with the patented, advanced UCT EXO process, unlike standard NiB coatings. This offers extreme lubricity with a friction coefficient of .02 and surface hardness of 82-85 Rockwell C.

LANTAC 308 EBCG -620

The carriers patent pending design features unique shrouded and forward facing gas ports that have also been re sized so that gas is vented differently to a standard carrier. This results in a system that runs flatter with a smoother energy pulse. In addition the system also runs cooler and cleaner, there is also less pressurization of the upper receiver when running a suppressed barrel.

LANTAC 308 EBCG 1

The flared boss at the tail of the carrier enhances the BCG’s position within the buffer tube at the time of cycling and allows for a flatter more controlled reciprocation of the assembly. All critical dimensions are hard turned / ground after heat treat.

LANTAC 308 EBCG 1

All E-BCG’s feature the LANTAC CP-R360-H™ patent pending domed cam pin that is machined from 17-4PH Stainless Steel and hardened to H900 condition (45RC approx). The ultra smooth head reduces wear within the upper receiver. The BCG’s weight helps to increase lock time with smoother operation.

LANTAC 308 EBCG 3

Gas keys are properly staked at four points and only grade 8 fasteners are used in assembly.

LANTAC 308 EBCG 3

The E-BCG’s forward porting and unique shape assist in reducing pressurization inside the upper receiver that can be caused by short barrel rifles running suppressors. However, it should be noted that the E-BCG™ is not a complete solution for this issue and all rifles are different. ‘Over Gassed’ guns will suffer to a larger extent from this problem.

LANTAC 308 “Heavy” E-BCG

Posted on May 20th, 2016 by ar15news

LANTAC has been working on the new .308 (Heavy) Version of their E-BCG for some time now and they just announced it is now in production. The E-BCG is simply one of the best AR15 BCG’s on the market and now you’re looking at possibly the best AR10 BCG out there as well. Time will tell but I am expecting great things from the E-BCG “Heavy”. Not sure on price just yet but if the price of the AR15 E-BCG is any indicator, it’s not going to be cheap. We’ll keep you up to speed as more information regarding the E-BCG Heavy is released.

Faxon Firearms “Gunner” Ultra-Light Bolt Carrier Group

Posted on April 28th, 2016 by ar15news

When looking to reduce felt recoil in an AR-15 (there isn’t a ton but there’s enough), one route you could go is to go with a lightweight Bolt Carrier Group. Lightweight BCGs are largely used in competition rifles like those used 3-Gun where the lighter the recoil the better for fast followup shots, etc. Faxon Firearms is already very well know for their successful ARAK-21 self contained piston upper and massive selection of barrels but noticed some issues with other lightweight BCGs and decided to make their own. Check out the all new Faxon Firearms “Gunner” Ultra-Light BCG and intro pricing info below.

faxon-gunner-bcg-ultra-light-bolt-carrier-groups-ff556bcgcnitride-lw-by-faxon-firearms-140

When looking at lightweight bolt carrier groups, we were unsatisfied with what the market had to offer. Seeing a capability gap, we set out to create a bolt carrier group that could live up to the GUNNER name with no compromise in strength or function. We set specifications that would allow no compromise:

1. Lightest Weight Possible (8.32 Ounces Complete, 6.24 Ounces Carrier & Key Only)
2. MIL-SPEC Materials & Finishes or Better!
3. Forward Assist Serrations
4. Compatible with Dust Covers
5. Maintains Full-Auto Trip Sear for full-auto and the new multi-stage trigger functionality
6. Looks Amazing

Matching our barrels, we selected the QPQ method of Salt Bath Nitride for all the carriers components. By coating all parts, the carrier’s natural slickness is increased markedly requiring less gas and pressure to operate. Further, the QPQ SBN process seals components against corrosion while making them fantastically wear resistant.

PWS “Blem” Enhanced DI Bolt Carriers

Posted on January 15th, 2016 by ar15news

Got a spare bolt laying around that’s lonely for a carrier or maybe you just want to upgrade the standard BCG in your rifle? PWS (Primary Weapons Systems) has some of their Enhanced QPQ DI AR-15 Bolt Carriers in-stock that are basically used/blems. They were installed in rifles and have some wear marks but have been inspected, new gas key installed and are good to go. PWS complete DI BCGs go for around $249 but you can get a PWS DI Bolt Carrier for just $75. That’s not a bad price at all for the quality you’re getting. Keep in mind, this is just the Bolt Carrier, you will still need an AR-15 bolt to complete it.
