1 - Anyone make a chrome bolt for the 6.8mm AR?

2 - Is the bolt carrier group (everything but the bolt and extractor) on a 6.8mm the SAME exact thing as the one on a 5.56 AR? Meaning, if you already had a 5.56 bolt carrier group, could you then just use a 6.8mm bolt with it in a 6.8mm AR upper?

Thanks!

LMT makes a 6.8 chrome bolt. $155.

Yes all you need is a bolt and the carrier is interchangable.
Thanks!

The only chrome bolt I could find to run with my chrome carrier is the LMT enhanced bolt, which I don't want. I'm going to take a CMT bolt and extractor and have them chrome plated.

yes:

Chrome bolt

Second question is yes.

Thanks, guys.

Going to get a 5.45x39 build and was wondering if I should even bother with the chrome bolt and carrier - all the ammo I will use will be corrosive, but I assume if I clean meticulously after every session, the non-chromed bolt and carrier should serve me well, eh?

Hell, for the cost of the chromed bolt and carrier group, I could buy TWO non-chromed bolt and carrier groups.
