I bought a Young chromed carrier(carrier only) over a year ago. Now that I have a need for it I need a chromed cam pin to match but Youngs has not answered my emails for the part. Anyone else carry the chromed parts like the cam pin? I realize I don't really need the cam pin chromed but would like one just the same.

Smith Enterprises offers one. You need to be careful which brand you buy.

I purchased a DPMS several years ago and it snapped in half after less than 100 rounds. I suspect it was Hydrogen Embrittlement.

Yeah I saw the one on Brownell's. Not sure if I want that one though. Looks like crap. Probably no DPMS parts for me either. I thought Rainier would have them but don't list them. At least as a separate part.

Why don't you get a POF roller cam if you're having a hard time finding a nice chromed one.

Supposedly smoothes up the action too. Not that I'd know though.

I'll never know either. It says you need to remove the Gas key to use it. Fuck that crap, if true!
Talk about a mess.
I clicked on the pic on Rainiers site and it said that.

I have run DPMS chrome cam pins for decades in over a dozen rifles with tens of thousands of rounds through them collectively and I have never had a problem with them.

Call them. They will give you prices for what you want and you can email them with your order. 623-915-3889

I have a Young NM BCG and I just buy un-chromed spare parts. IMO, chrome doesn't do a whole bunch for the gas key(w/screws), cam pin and extractor.
