    I'm going to start another AR build.
    But I think I'll use the BCG from another rifle and use it in the new build...

    Is this okay to do?
    I don't see why not but I'm thinking maybe the BCG wears down and fits the rifle it's in after a while...idk

    Just checking.
    Asking y'all makes me feel better, lol

    Yes it's ok between standard AR's. Barring heavy wear/tear

    Carriers can be interchanged but bolts may not headspace due to wear and other factors. Use a new bolt and be confident your new build will run at it's best. Actually good quality complete BCG's can be had for about a hundred bucks.
