So im in the middle of getting the parts together to send over to the gunsmith for a 6mm arc build.

This will be a long range, sitting at a bench rifle with a 22" barrel.

I had my heart set on JP enterprises BCG, but of course like everything else they are out of stock.

I want something fancy with tight tolerances, go big or go home don't care about $$.

Ive been scouring and what I can find in stock that is of higher quality is Wilson combats BCG, they have it in stock.

Optics Planet has the JP Carrier, but then i am unsure what bolt to throw in there that would be of equal quality to theirs?  AA, Maxim, Other ?

Also looks like Precision firearms has a BCG in stock, not sure how they are.

Lantec would have been a second choice but they are OOS too.

What do ya think is my best option from above OR do you know of any other higher quality BCG's that are available now?

Precision Firearms would be good quality.
I would consider Maxim.
Aero Precision @ Primary arms
I prefer to match bolts to the barrel Mfg.

Cryptic coating. Not only fancy, but also very well made.

I went Maxim for my Odin barrel. Ar15discounts has a sale on a Toolcraft one right now, I’ve always been happy with their stuff in the past too.

I was finally able to find a JP BCG


LMOS polished, no FA.

Now just trying to nail down barrel length.

I have a Precision Firearms 6.5 Grendel BCG I got on sale and it is by far the nicest BCG I own.   Personally I don’t think it makes any difference.   I have five 6.5 Grendel AR-15 BCG and several have Millenium manufactured bolts sold by SixFiveArms.   The same bolts are sold by Black rifle Arms.   If I were buying a 6.5 Grendel bolt I’d buy from SixFiveArms but if I was buying a BCG I’d buy whatever I thought was the best deal.   I think Toolcraft, PSA have quality 6.5 Grendel BCG.
