Hey guys,

Didn’t even know these existed 2 days ago. Do any of you have any experience with or knowledge about these? On the one hand, I’ve been lead to believe that fully chromed Bolts and Carriers were not a good idea in practice but on the other hand, KAC usually only puts out top notch stuff so I’m thinking if this is real deal KAC stuff, it’s probably pretty good?

there's nothing wrong with a well made chrome bcg just cheap/crap ones.

Somebody on the EE was selling 4 of them for something like $120 each if I'm not mistaken. MJD

Yeah, I bought one of them. Price was pretty good so I figured I get one to check out.

I was curious if anybody had and first hand experience with them?

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. How has the carrier been working out for you? Did you get the KAC Chrome bolt as well?

Is cleaning them any easier or do they seem to stay cleaner a any longer?

The best thing about them is they are a slipperier metal so they dont need as much lube and thusly they dont jam as often as gunk doesn't build up as easily. As far as cleaning them it's 50/50. The only real cleaning advantage is you can see if any powder is left on it.

Does the hard chroming increase the longevity of the bolt? Is it less likely to break a lug or crack at the cam pin hole? Any idea how well LMT/KAC chromed bolts are holding up to high round counts?

Wes, why did you buy them all up? What impressed you about them so much?
