    I can't find a fricken BCG anywhere..
    Well I can find a few but not what I'm looking for.
    I want one chrome finished. Or with a nickel boron finish.

    Can anyone find me a link on a good one for $175-250?
    I found this one and was hoping to hear some reviews on it from y'all...

    SOLD!
    But quick question (this is my first build and I'm new to all of this)...it says it has a "full auto carrier". But I will only be doing semi auto will this still work for me?
    Thanks

    Don't get the AR Stoner. I ordered one on a whim due to not finding one and returned it a day after taking it out of the packaging. There was hardly no staking and it felt like a POS

    Definitely steer clear of that Stoner. Way too many reports of bolt lugs shearing off after a few hundred rounds.

    As far as the FA carrier, that's a good thing. It will work in any standard AR.

    No need for external plating, in fact it's wise to skip it and look at specs instead. If you want the best specs look at BCM's standard BCG.

    Joe Bobs had MPI bolt groups for around $140 yesterday. Bolt type is the 9000 number that is the hardest. I'm at work so I can't check to see if they are still in stock.

    True. But I won't chrome or nickel boron.
    And thanks so much for helping with the search.
    I'm trying to find this stuff online so I don't get raped at the local gun store. I love supporting them but their selection is low and the prices wayyyy too high.

    If you don't want chrome/NiB, but want a higher end M16 BCG at a fair price...PM me. I have some new BCM & PSA M16s...they're slated for builds, but I may part with one at a fair price. There is also this option, which is probably outstanding quality and can be had for a price I simply can't compete with.

    I believe he wants a Ni Bor or Chrome . His choice his money but not worth it to me . Looks wont get you better performance in this area. and since its the heart of the gun that keeps it running I would stick to quality parts , A BCM , PSA ,Rainier Arms and a few others fall in this category and you wont find all of those in Ni Bor .
    If you come asking we are willing to help but if you have your mind set in stone on something sometimes its best to just not ask , you might not get the answer your looking for :rolleyes:

    Nice, nice, nice! Always love to see a Hi Power! The Practical is about as nice as two-tone gets.

    If you want a standard phosphate BCG, I have a few from Rock River Arms available.
