Will Colt work? All opinions welcome.

So the Bushmaster bolt is not as good as the Colt?

Colt bolts supposedly has going for them their quality program (which includes certain tests and specs) and micropolishing on the face and extractor.

Me? Colt or LMT bolts - all else take a backseat but that's taking things to the Nth degree. That is not to say a Bushy bolt won't do just fine, they will.

Isn't MSTN putting Les Baer carriers with LMT enhanced bolts in their high end guns? I thought I saw that mentioned about a month ago in some units heading over to the sand box.

Chromed LMT, I thought.

FWIW, I would buy the enhanced LMT bolt. Its nickeled, to match thee chrome, and unlike the carrier its perfectly reliable. At worst its no improvement over stock, at best it could save the day.

I've gotten match KAC carriers from MSTN which are just chromed LMT's...

My MSTN SPR upper came with a Les Baer match chromed carrier.
