Bolt Carrier Groups $99

Just bought one of these from AIM. Free shipping.

Anyone have experience with their BCGs? Likes, dislikes? Good buy?

The only thing i would be worried about is the bolt not being Carpenter 158. But in all honestly i think it would be just fine.

Carpenter 158 is harder 8820 and I know BCM bcgs use it and work quite well.  I don't think its anything to be afraid of at all.

That being said Rainier just had theirs on sale for I think 115 for a Labor Day sale, gotta get on 'em.  There are plenty in stock all over nowadays though so it shouldn't be hard to find one or ten.

They use 9310 for their bolts, which most vendors rate as an "upgrade"

Which is why I would (and did) go with AIM.  Palmetto is becoming famous for the bait and switch.  I'd hate to order the $99 one and end up with an 8620 bolt, which is what their $79 one has.  With AIM, you know you are getting a 9310 bolt, and it is also $99 shipped.  Mine arrived this week, and looks great.

Where exactly does it say the $99.00 BCG is MPI? I can't find it anywhere on the product page or in the description.

Hmmmm my bad.  I must have read it in a different product description.

As for psa involved in "bait and switch", I've never experienced anything of the sort and have had nothing but good transactions with them.

I am 1 for 3 on hassle free PSA orders, and there are many people who ordered 7075 buffer tubes only to receive 6061, and more recently "complete" uppers that show up without BCG.  That said, I hear they have a new process of accounting for the packing of orders.  That and their weekend sale led me to make a fourth order, albeit one that would be hard to screw up.  Fingers crossed.
