    Toolcraft Bolt Carrier Groups, the best buy for the money?

    TOOLCRAFT

    I've been purchasing these Bolt Carrier Groups made by Toolcraft and nitride coated for as little as $65 each shipped to my door. I've put several hundred rounds through a few of them and I can not begin to tell you how impressed I am with the product.

    I have spent much more of my hard earned dollars on "high end" BCG's (not gonna name names) and the Toolcraft product has either matched or surpassed the quality and aesthetics of them minus a logo on the side, in every case. If you read the specs you'll see that Toolcraft does not scrimp on the quality in their product so I'm not sure how they keep the price so affordable and well below the cost of the high end "name" brand BCG's that are similar in quality.

    Toolcraft Bolt carrier Groups are a winner in my book and they will continue to get my money as long as they keep up the quality of craftsmanship I've seen so far!

    Bolt Assembly:
    ​Bolt: AISI 9310 alloy steel
    MPI Inspected
    Extractor: Shot Peened Hardened D2 tool steel
    O-Ring: Mil-Spec
    Gas rings (3): Mil-Spec
    Finish: Black Nitride

    Bolt Carrier:
    8620 steel
    Heavy Duty M16 design
    Grade 8 Gas Key Screws, Staked
    Gas Key Material: 4140
    Finish: Black Nitride

    Cam Pin:
    8620 steel
    Finish: Black Nitride

    Firing Pin:
    mil-spec firing pin made from centerless ground 8740 steel, hard chrome coated


    This is one that i have about 300-400 rounds through and it still looks minty fresh. Gotta love that nitride coating!

    They make more designer brand BCG’s than you could ever imagine. Solid components.

    Where are you getting those from?

    Monmouth and Right to Bear are also good sources. I just received a Toolcraft nitride 308 BCG from Monmouth and my initial impressions are very positive.

    edit: note that Monmouth gives the purists the option for the C-158 bolt

    My nitride 308 BCG that I paid $125 for is very nice and has performed well for me. Needs more rounds put on it though.

    I have purchased several nitride 223 BCG for $65 and used them on several builds and haven't had an issue yet. Don't see any reason to use anything else.
