I don't think the nickel boron really does much. Maybe a little easier to clean. BCM bolt carrier groups are the bees knees man.
You do what you want but anything moving like a BCG is creating friction and premature wear , stick with the trusted stuff and BCM is it , use what ever you got to lube it, engine oil, vegetable oil, spit, transmission fluid , 3in1 oil, grease, , what ever we all know this stuff works 100% and BCM is a trusted name out there in BCGsI found the thread and double checked. So far they said they put 800 rounds through the rifle without any ADDITIONAL lube than what came on the bcg when it arrived from WMD. It was still running strong at that point (this was posted in July of 2012). Others seem to have done similar tests, but they usually stop around 300 or 400 rounds.
The whole point of nickel boron coating is that the surface is slick without adding lube. It sounds like it lives up to its claims.
So you selling the other BCG?epleyjoseph said:BCM it is!
But I'd like to clarify-no one is saying it's wise run your AR without lube. These posts were by people who were skeptical of the nickel boron finish and wanted to put it through hell to see if it was legit.
OPPORTUNIST!So you selling the other BCG?
That would be great!OPPORTUNIST!
Hey check out our own non professional testing. There's a thread in this forum...i wonder what happened to it..... lemme dig it up for you...
Thanks! It's good to hear from someone who has actually had contact with the bcg in question.I've handled the WMD complete Nib AR. It seems to be of good quality, and I understand the concept of requiring "less" to clean and maintain. I would not however, run anything with that kind of stress without some form of lube. It's basic mechanical law that anytime two pieces of metal rubbing on one another need be lubed, coatings be damned. That being said, I'd use the WMD bcg without any worries, but I wouldn't run it dry if they paid me to.
My LGS has the NiB-X complete AR on the shelf for sale. $1799 I think it was. It's all NiB coated, except a couple small furniture parts. Looks pretty nice. Here's what it looks likeThanks! It's good to hear from someone who has actually had contact with the bcg in question.
Again, I would never run a dry bcg, but if the coating can do what they say, then it seems like a plus to reliability and wear reduction.
