Done it MANY times with ARs...no ill effects whatsoever. Other guns are different, but this being AR15.com, I would think that is the pertinent info.

Bullshit. A very small amount of increased wear, possibly. Injuy & death, bullshit.

For awhile I'd built several upper configurations to help me decide what best worked for me, & only had 1 bolt carrier assy. Never a problem - of course, all parts were Bushmaster.

No, he's right...I'm still having trouble getting the Enfield bolt out of my Swedish Mauser.

Vennie,I had the same problem , use a big hammer. Then I found out it should work fine in your Springfield.

I would agree on a HK rifle but very slim chances on other weapons. If you have seen Model 1 sales at gun shows they just go and grab parts and put them in a bag. People have several different AR uppers and use the same bolt.

Hey, I never said that was my opinion.
Several other people asked about swapping bolts and assemblies.
The phrase in question came from U.S.M.C. TM 05538c-23&P/2

If I am not mistaken, the headspacing on an AR is on the barrel as opposed to headspacing the bolt head.

I don't know what you're talking about. If you use a hydrolic press, you can get just about any bolt in an AR15.

"Do not interchange bolt assemblies or other components fron one weapon to another. Doing so may result in injury to, or death of, personnel".



I was trying to remember where I saw the above text, so I looked it up in the reference material I have on the AR15/M16.

I found this very sentence in the U.S. MARINE CORPS TECHNICAL MANUAL TM 05538C-23&P/2 on page 2-18
