Bolt carriers , Which one would you choose ?
 
3 different bolt carriers here bolt A on the top of the first 3 pics , bolt B on the bottom of the first 3 pics is slightly used 3400 rds so please ignore the wear marks and bolt C on the last 2 pics . all 3 are mil spec and MP, HP tested
Now why would you choose what you have chosen ?

"A" looks brand new, smooth, well staked and M16 carrier. "B" shows use, is rougher and maybe not staked as well. Also M16. "C" would be my least favorite due to the AR-15 carrier and the staking looks light.

I would choose bolt B on the bottom of the first 3 pics because it looks like mine. A Bravo Company Mfg. BCM full Auto M16 This is a good game. Will you tell us which ones are in the pics after more people chime in?

I would choose A! It looks like a much cleaner manufactured carrier, with consistent lines and angles.

good enough for me, any of them ;) if it breaks I'll swap it out with a b/u bcg until i can repair it :cool:

In regard to the edit, C's carrier is not milspec, it's AR-15 style.

My bad u are right on that one. More surprises coming soon

My guess are: A = is a Spikes Tactical
B = is a BCM
C = is a cheap back up
When can we get the results?

Good call A is spikes. They have a very distinct color from everything else
B is a palmetto state armory. Very dark in color and almost exact to a BCM. After comparing this to my buddies BCM I would say these come from the same house.
C is a LMT .
LMT is Normally not know for this kind of work. But this just goes to show they all have slip ups in QC every once in a while. ,
This LMT rifle came from a dealer who claimed it was all mil spec. And we know it is not, that is why I posted them all up in mil spec to see who or if anyone would catch this. Good catch Quentin
LMT has taken care of this issue by the way so please do not slander them they do make great rifles and they all have a slip every now and then.
