    Anyone try one of the Fail Zero BCG. Is it all hype? Thanks

    I use one and like it a lot. I still lube it however. It rides in the upper on my 18" SPR like rifle and has been flawless since building it this past winter. Worth every penny.

    Thanks for the advice. I have a Bush M4 that cycles fine when using brass ammo but when using steel case it starts not cycling after 20-30 rounds. I was wondering if the Failzero would help correct that. It only has about 300 rounds through it since new.

    I dont know about the steel stuff. I have yet to use any of it. Have you posted your problem so someone might be able to diag it?

    I was having issues feeding steel as well. I thought I had mag or feed ramp problems, but they disappeared when I switched to brass. Maybe there was another issue, but I'm done with steel cased .223 for the foreseeable future. Buy AE XM193, it's almost as cheap as wolf or bear steel case.

    I ordered the Fail Zero BCG and they sent me the full auto carrier so I sent it back and got the AR carrier. Put a few hundred rounds of Wolf through it without a hiccup. I,m impressed.

    Why did you not want the FA carrier?

    I was just curious. Thought it might be some accuracy/function thing I didnt know about.
