I know its legal. My question is, is will it fit? does it use the same extractor and springs? Will the semi auto bolt fit properly? Thank you. And thanks to all that answered my other question yesterday. Stilleto.

It will fit, and is considered better than a semi auto BCG by many.

Only difference in the auto carrier and a standard one is the auto carrier has more mass and as a result is heavier.......

+1 Both carrier types have same overall dimensions and are interchangeable. The cutout in the M16 carrier is smaller so it is heavier.

Hey, that's a good one - 'has more mass and is heavier'. That's like 'It's more expensive and is costlier'.

Mass includes inertia and density... Just because it has more mass doesn't mean it's heavier, although it is the case this time.

Back on topic, why would a heavier bolt carrier be considered better? Does it allow for more reliable feeding?

ETA: failed at chemistry myself...

Mass is weight X density... Just because it has more mass doesn't mean it's heavier, although it is the case this time.

Yes, especially in select fire weapons or rifles using heavier than standard ammunition, i.e. 64-80 grain loads.

I just like having the rifle as close as possible to the same design spec..like un notched hammers.
