I just received a new LMT M16 bolt and carrier. The last one I purchased came with the nickel finish on the bolt:LMT nickel finish; towards bottom of page. Are all LMT bolts nickel finished? The one I received is marked with an "F" (FNMI) and also has brass marking on the bolt face (could this be from proof firing?) Just curious if this is a genuine LMT bolt/carrier.

My LMT M16 BCG has a nickle plated bolt assy without any markings.

My spare LMT standard BCG's bolt assy is not plated and have the F marking.

The F marking is a date code per the other LMT owners replies in previous threads.

So, are the M16 BCGs supposed to come with the nickel plated bolt?

The brass marks are from test firing.
LMT had a batch of their standard bolts nickel plated (like their enhanced model) instead of parkerized
My guess is the nickel was a mistake (an upgraded mistake), but it is not a standard item. . . . unless they have a new offering now?



Sounds good, Paul.

So, the brass marks are from "test firing"? As evidence of part of MPC testing, or am I reading too much into that statement?

I have seen some LMT M16 BCGs with and without nickle plating.

I bought mine about three months ago. Here's a thread about two months ago that shows a M16 bolt that's not plated, but strangely marked MPI and have a factory installed Crane O-ring which is rare.

The only guys who should know more about it should be the dealers like Bravo Co., C4iGrant etc.

ETA: I bought my M16 BCG from Bravo Co.

GLAD I STASHED A GOOD NUMBER OF THE HARD CHROMED ONES FOR SPECIAL PROJECTS.

LMT TEST FIRES ALL BOLTS, ALL BOLT CARRIER GROUPS, ALL UPPERS, AND ALL LOWERS. HOW MANY ROUNDS, I DO NOT KNOW. NOT EVERY MANUFACTURER GOES TO THIS MUCH TROUBLE. MAYBE NOT ANY OTHERS ...

I stashed mine also along with a LMT enhanced 6.8MM SPC bolt.
