Default core 15 bcg

I will quickly run thru what I thought about it .
Staking is good, maybe a bit overkill as it split the steel upon staking again no big deal to me but i know a few people that would throw a fit . finish is as adequate as any bcg. Firing pin standard all. Now the bolt no mpi stamping which they claim that it is , so that usually mean its random batch testing at best . Worth the $129 ? I would say yes since they are on back order most everywhere. The test will come when we start running it . One thing I did notice is every split in the gas rings were lined up and not turned to keep gas from leaking thru. Not that big of deal to fix but almost certain to cause a problem .

I opted for the Core15 nickel boron bcg. I'm waiting for my SBR stamp so I haven't tested it yet.

Doesn't sound awful but I'd pay a little more for fewer unknowns. At that price I think I'd get PSA.

It really doesn't matter if the ring gaps line up, as you said it's not a big deal. I never pay attention to it, they stagger with use. And in a pinch people have run a single gas ring (which means the "gaps" always line up).

Does it have a FA carrier?

Yes FA carrier . PSA and BCM were out of stock when I ordered this one or I would have went with one of those 2 first

Yeah, BCGs are in short supply and the price was right. Sometimes you have to take a chance and jump on a deal. If you later find a deal on something you like - nothing wrong with having a spare.
