Ok, it is shiny...it looks familiar...what is it exactly?

Wait, it's really shiny...MUST HAVE ONE.

How's tricks Bradd_D?

I always pass on those kind of items. Like the titanium firing pins.

You're not really thinking of getting one of those, are you?

I don't think it is a must have item. However, Wes knows his stuff and if he thinks it is a superior product it probably is.

Naah, if it aint broke....

It DOES look like it incorporates a number of worthwhile improvements.

I've considered buying a set.

What the fuck are you all THINKING?!?!?

If someone asks if dropping a load of cash on something is a good idea, you say YES!

Do you need a little stamp on your hand to remind you of this?!?

Too rich for my blood. I was just curious if anyone was considering it. I'd like to get the bolt, but not for $185. I don't really think I have a need for the carrier as most of the improvements relate to the carbines.

I'm not personally excited about the changes. The bolt locking lugs have to be weaker due to the cuts, and trading one large extractor spring for two smaller (necessarily weaker) springs doesn't spell improvement to me. Of course, shiny is attractive....

[crow mode]Ooooh, a SPARKLY! Must have! [/crow mode]

If it's a swishy crow, that would of course be a "thparkly".

Um...Hmmm. Lessee, I can get one of the shiny LMT bolts for $185, or I can get three regular black ones for $165. Sure the regular bolts can break earlier than the LMT, but I don't think the LMT can last up to three times the useful life of the regular bolts. I think I'll take the regular bolts, and use the spare change for my Aimpoint.

I will probably get one just because they make them. I want one of them fat boy gas tubes too.

They really beefed up the extractor...wider and 2 springs.
I wouldn't say "must have" but I'd like to try it....

Im passing for now just because my parts supply is GI Spec, and that nifty extactor AINT.

It's so shinny. You could have the "homeboy" edition AR.
