got a gemtech gsbc-5.56 in and need a bolt for it.

thinking this - http://www.aimsurplus.com/product.aspx?item=XAIMBAKNIB&name=AIM+NIB+.223%2f5.56+BAK-UP+(Bolt+Assembly+Kit)+for+AR+type+Rifles&groupid=723 - but am open to anything high end.

no price limit and needs to be awesome.

suggestions?

G&R had Colt bolts in stock a week ago. Might want to look there. His price beat the Brownell's Mil/LEO price. I think Brownell's was out when I looked.

I'll be interested in hearing your thoughts on the carrier. A buddy is getting one and claims it will cure cancer on his MK18. Personally, I'm not sure anything needs fixing when the money could go to other things (like ammo).

I shopped for a month of sundays and I found that it's cheaper to just buy a whole new BCG. Just my 2 cents.

Personally, I look for C158 bolts but the ARP superbolts have a great reputation (no experience with them, personally). That Ballistic Advantage NiB bolt that Stone linked to looks like a good choice, but PA has the Fail Zero complete BCG for only $99, so for a few buck more you get a spare carrier.

If I wasn't concerned about NiB or melonite, I'd get BCM or DD:

I will take a look, before they were released I saw them at SHOT earlier this year and have shot a few guns with it installed.

It'll not only cure cancer but a bunch of other stuff.

Thanks! I'll check them out.

Bolts aren't that expensive, even the really good ones are right under $80, which is still 1/3 of the cost of a really high end BCG unless its used but I totally see what you are saying.

I am not concerned, but want something that will mate flawlessly with the gemtech BC, so NiB may be a requirement (for me).

If Im not mistaken I beleive the bolt from BA is the Fail zero bolt. If you go that route I would call and confirm.

I don't know if it's been mentioned yet, but I had been thinking about getting the Gemtech carrier and pairing it with a Sharps Relia-Bolt.

I have a NiB bolt from Rainier lying around as a spare, which I would I have recommended, but I didn't find it on their site (admittedly, I checked quickly).

Any idea what the finish is on those? Doesn't say on their website. His warranty is impressive...
