AIM v2 BLACK NITRIDE .223/5.56/300BLK CARPENTER 158 Bolt

Posted on May 4th, 2015 by ar15news

AIM Surplus just introduced their new Black Nitride AR15 Bolt made from Carpenter 158 steel. The bolts are also Shot Peened and MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) and feature Billet Machined Extractors with Black Insert and O-Ring upgrade. Black Nitride is quickly becoming the go-to finish for AR parts. The fact that it is a Surface Treatment (Molten Salt Bath) and not a coating gives it better durability and boasts some of the best lubricity and corrosion protection of any finish out there. If you’re building a BCG or need a great backup/replacement Bolt, this is a great option for just $49.95 with FREE SHIPPING at

Great Deal!! – AIM Surplus Nickel Boron .308 BCG

Posted on February 16th, 2015 by ar15news

The last year has seen an explosion of interest in building big bore AR’s, especially the AR-10/.308. Things like .308 receiver sets and barrels are not only a lot more readily available but also much more affordable than they ever have been before. Unfortunately some smaller parts like Bolt Carrier Groups are still not so easy to find and can cost quite a bit. This weekend I happened to run across the AIM Surplus Nickel Boron .308/7.62×51 BCG and was surprised to see that not only does it look like a very high quality BCG but they are selling it for just $179.95 with FREE SHIPPING in the lower 48 States. I just finished up my second .308 build over the weekend and might need to pick up one of these BCGs for the next .308 build.

AIM Surplus NiB 308 BCG

AIM .308/7.62×51 Caliber BDG Nickel Boron Bolt Carrier Groups. A great BCG at an even better price! We are having these built to our exacting Standards. The Bolt is shot peened and manufactured out of 9310 Tool Steel with a 4140 Machined Extractor. The Carrier is the more common DPMS pattern with a Nickel Boron finish for easier cleaning and provides a slicker surface. The Gas Key is Hardened to USGI Specifications and fastened to the carrier using Grade 8 Hardware, and then properly staked. More information below.


The assembly requirements for our Bolt Carrier Groups are much higher than most.  Before assembling the gas key to the carrier, permatex NO.3D aviation is applied to form-a-gasket around the gas hole (per MIL-SPEC).  Then Grade-8 hardware i used to attach the gas key, followed by properly staking per spec.  When installing the extractor to the bolt, both the extractor buffer and the crane-o-ring are inserted with the spring.  Both are present to insure proper ejection 100% of the time.  Then high temperature grease is app to the gas rings before inserting the bolt into the carrier, which allows for much smoother operation. These BCGs are inspected to the highest of standards, to insure a high quality product that is 100% reliable for our customers…PROUDLY MADE IN THE USA!

BLACK FORGE BF15 AR-15 Receiver Sets – Black or Kryptek

Posted on March 18th, 2014 by ar15news

Our friends over at BLACK FORGE are known for making some really sweet AR’s. They also make some pretty sick receiver sets including a full line of Kryptek camo models. As with any manufacturer, from time to time they find some receivers that may have a small scratch or dent on them and just don’t pass their quality control to be sold as a normal unit. Some companies call them blem’s but BLACK FORGE calls them Hard Use receivers because you don’t have to be worried about scratching them up. Another great thing about blem receivers…they usually come in at a great price point and these are no exception. Right now AIM Surplus has standard Black Upper and Lower sets for just $115 and Kryptek camo Upper and Lower sets for just $140. Add FREE SHIPPING in there and you’ve got one heck of a deal. Start your next build with a set of BLACK FORGE Hard Use receivers at

AIM Surplus Labor Day Sales

Posted on August 26th, 2013 by ar15news

AIM Surplus has started their Labor Day sale quite a bit early this year. It appears to have been a great idea as they have pretty much sold out a lot of the items they had for sale. However, there are still a few deals to be had. I’ve listed the two that really stuck out to me below. 

First is the M16/AR15 Full Auto BCG. Its not quite milspec due to the fact that the Bolt is made from 9310 but that’s not a bad thing. Most of the expensive “High Performance” bolts out there are made from 9310 which is what this bolt is made from. These are MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) and have Staked Gas Keys. On Sale with FREE SHIPPING for just $99.95 but you better hurry before they are all gone. Purchase HERE.

The second item that caught my attention was this Advanced Armament Corp MPW 16″ 300 Blackout Rifle. I’m a huge fan of the 300BLK round and I’ve been hearing more and more that people are seeing 300BLK ammo in stores which is awesome. This complete rifle features a KAC URX III rail, Nickel Boron BCG, Geissele Trigger, Magpul MOE+ Grip and Magpul CTR stock all for $1,499 SHIPPED! I know that’s a lot of money but its a steal for this gun. If you want an awesome 300BLK Blaster….this is it!  Purchase HERE.

You know what the number one question I get lately is? It “Hey, do you know of any good deals on complete uppers?”. For the most part people are marketing assembled uppers and BCG separately to make the price sound like a better deal but they really aren’t. This is why I haven’t been posting about assembled uppers lately. Well, this deal is definitely one I would consider as a good deal. AIM Surplus has COMPLETE Spike’s Tactical MOE AR15 Upper Receivers in-stock right now. This includes the assembled Upper, Spike’s Milspec Full Auto M16/AR15 BCG and Charging Handle. Spike’s makes some great stuff so you would expect a slightly higher price range but that’s not the case with this deal from AIM Surplus. This complete upper is only $530 so don’t expect them to be in-stock for too long. Details and pictures below. Purchase one for yourself now at
