Sorry for being slow.
Here it is my 2nd review and my final conclusion to this FailZero BCG.
As i said in my previous post, i would be testing it with my Noveske firing pin inside the FailZero BCG.
My weapon was:
Noveske Complete 10.5" SBR, Carbine Gas System with Spike's Tactical ST-T2 Buffer.
Brought 220 rounds of WPA Russian ammo and 90 rounds of PMC.
First 4 full mags of WPA & 1 full mags of PMC ammo were flawless.
Then 2 FTE occured on the next full mag of WPA ammo.
Then 3 FTE on the next full mag of PMC ammo.
Things gone worst, i had about about 10 FTE, FTF and Double feed on the full mag of WPA ammo.
Remove the FailZero BCG out of my SBR and put in my Noveske BCG with it's firing pin.
Counted my remaining ammo, there were about 30 rounds of PMC ammo & 40 rounds of WPA ammo.
Shot the remaining ammo with my Noveske BCG without any single hiccup. Worked flawless!
Forgot to mention, the testing was done in a rapidly firing aka mag dumps.
Here are the abused FailZero BCG before cleaning:
Pics of throughly cleaned FailZero BCG:
The FailZero BCG is cleaned and is in sealed Priority Small Flat Rate Box. It is ready to be shipped back to X-Mark.
My opinion, as i said it is shiny just like Spike's. And i never liked chromed BCGs, i even sold my brand new Spike's chromed BCG which came with my upper.
I am not really sure why i had those hiccups with this BCG. I did heavily coat this BCG prior use with Mobil1 Full Syntetic Motor Oil 5-30W as i always do when lubing my firearms. I love them WET!
Maybe the extractor caused the problem? But i didn't notice any specific find which might caused this failure when i cleaned it.
Also, if i remember correctly, don't they always say Nickel Boron/ Chromed BCGs are self lubricated? It FAILED on WET though! lol
Hope this thread answer to those asking "Is Nickel Boron or Chromed BCG better than the regular BCG?" It is not necessarily better but it is more expensive for sure!
Also the SBR i used to test it, it worked and works flawlessly. That, i'm sure this failure wasn't because of my weapon or the ammo i used.
Once again, it was a pleasure and honor to be included in this experiment.
Thank You Mark!
