Default BCM bolt carrier group

I bought a BCM bolt carrier group and it came with a small nut or something I'm not sure what it's for can anyone tell me? I'm new to the AR platform..

O-ring? You don't need it, but save it just in case you do.

Its an o-ring for under the extractor. Im running a 14.5" and mine works fine without it. I think it adds some uumph for extraction. I would run it without and see how it does, you can always add it later.
