Yep! That's the idea.

Those ARE disappointing range reports, but I think it's unfair to use that as a representation of the nickel boron coating itself. Both bcgs had manufacturing issues that had nothing to do with the coating. The fail zero's bent firing pin WAS replaced, but I have little confidence in a bcg the ships with a bent firing pin, no matter what the coating.

Also, it's important to note that neither of these were WMD bcgs. To WMD's credit, I've yet to hear of a complaint about one if THEIR bcgs.

I've handled the WMD complete Nib AR. It seems to be of good quality, and I understand the concept of requiring "less" to clean and maintain. I would not however, run anything with that kind of stress without some form of lube. It's basic mechanical law that anytime two pieces of metal rubbing on one another need be lubed, coatings be damned. That being said, I'd use the WMD bcg without any worries, but I wouldn't run it dry if they paid me to.

Thanks! It's good to hear from someone who has actually had contact with the bcg in question.

Again, I would never run a dry bcg, but if the coating can do what they say, then it seems like a plus to reliability and wear reduction.

My LGS has the NiB-X complete AR on the shelf for sale. $1799 I think it was. It's all NiB coated, except a couple small furniture parts. Looks pretty nice. Here's what it looks like

Waoh! That looks pretty nice! I don't think I'd actually want something like that though. Too shiny for my taste.
