A good friend of mine found out I was building an AR, and he sent me a complete BCG that he had "just sitting around for years".

The bolt itself is marked "CM", which to my understanding means it is a CMT product (which equals STAG?)?

Comparing the features to what is listed on the awesome M4 Guide, it does not seem to match up to attributes of a CMT/STAG BCG.

It is a M16 style carrier, with fully shrouded firing pin (chart says CMT/STAG carriers are AR15 style).
The Gas Keys are properly staked.
The only marking is a "D" located on the rear right side of the carrier.

Any feedback you may have would be appreciated. Thanks in advance!

It was new in the bag, he had bought an extra years ago but almost never shoots his AR. And yeah, he is a great guy, a solid friend.

I have a CMT BCG, it does not match the features or markings that you are describing.

Whoever made it.........you got a good one.

Is D Diemaco(Colt's Canadian "brother")? I'm not sure that DPMS marks their carriers as I've only handled couple, both unmarked, but it's another possibility.

Does it look like this?

Close, but not quite - A very plain "D" of the same size in the same place.

And for the record, the carrier is also light grey vs. the standard black found on the bolt.

Not looking a gift horse in the mouth or anything, Im just curious as to what is going into my rifle. On that note- my reaction when I got it was....

If it is a plain D it is a DPMS carrier and the bolt is a CMT bolt. DPMS marked there bolts that came with complete rifles with a D for a while. As far as I know they are back to the regular non marked ones havent seen one with a D on it in a while.

Right on, good to know-

I purchased a DPMS bcg 2 months ago from a friend that is a dealer. Chromed bore, chrome gas key bore, properly staked and "D" stamped on the side. Also ever so lightly stamped MP on the bolt (almost couldn't make it out without cheaters).

If somebody gave you a Kmart brand BCG (hypothetical) for free, wouldn't you want to know it was a POS? Likewise, if it was a brand new Colt, wouldn't you want to know?

An interesting comment:

"I contacted them (Spikes) a couple weeks ago and was told, "They (BCGs) are made by a large government contractor" When I contacted Fail Zero, they were more up front and I can quote them, "Yes our BCGs are made by Advanced Ordinance". "
