Here we go..
Opened the FailZero package from X-Mark. He sent me the FailZero BCG, instruction and a blank small notepad.
Inspected the BCG, it's shiny just like Spike's Chromed BCG.
Have you guys seen R-Guns Nickel Boron BCG? I prefer the R-Gun's quality finish. It is Nickel Boron coated and the finish is satin silver.
Sorry i don't have the R-Guns BCG with me right now, so no pic to show.
Anyway the spec of FailZero BCG as shown in Roctac.com:
Side by side with my Noveske BCG.
FailZero Bolt Face close up pic. Sorry kinda blurry
I disassembled the BCG and cleaned it. It was a little bit dirty, maybe it was coated with grease. As you can see the dark stains on my fingers.
Cleaned it throughly with Break Free and Hoppes #9. And lubed it with Mobil1 Full Synthetic 5-30W motor oil. Those 3 chemicals which i always use to clean and lube my firearms. Work great all the time.
When i was about to drop the firing pin back in, i felt i didn't drop free fully. It stucked. Then i inspected it closely and found out the firing pin isn't straight, it's bent. Here is the pic..
Do you guys notice that? Know what i mean?
So i did try t force it in, It need some force to push it in. So my conclusion is, this firing pin definitely will cause FTE/FTF. As i have no spare firing pin, i will be using my Noveske firing pin inside the FailZero BCG.
I am not going to test it with bent firing pin. Not going to risk or ruin my day.
By the way here is the pic comparison between the FailZero (Left) and my Noveske's (Right). As you can see from the quality finish, the Noveske is more shinier and smoother finish.
I apologize for doing this inspection on the last minute. As tomorrow (monday) is the day i will abuse this BCG. I had been busy at work and busy hunting for ammo too
Couldn't get any new ammo so i will be using some of my old ammo. Not much but the abuse will be 200-300 rounds. I will make a full detail report tomorrow.
I will also bring my Noveske BCG for my backup.
To be continued..
