    Surefire Bolt Carrier?

    The Surefire Optimized Bolt Carrier has been seen on YouTube and a few other places since 2016 and is apparently ready for commercial sale. Has anyone seen these in stock yet?

    Optics Planet shows these for $400 but out of stock with an overdue availability date.

    Surefire may actually have these in stock but if I can save a few bucks ordering elsewhere I'd rather go that route.

    What is a “long stroke buffer”? Will that be proprietary with the BCG?

    Seems overly expensive and lacks details on what makes it better. Why not an LMT and standard H2 buffer if you want proven enhancements.

    It's kind of odd. It's one of the few products you have to call Surefire to purchase, the website won't let you add it to the cart. I recall seeing this debut at SHOT 2017 ? But haven't seen much news about it since.

    Yep. Certainly not cheap. But the fact that it appears to be a complete kit with buffer and spring softens the blow somewhat.

    Wow, they've been pimping for 2 and half years and it's still not readily available?

    It looks like there were two versions. One was a standard bolt carrier with the built-in mass. The other was the enhanced stroke version with the shorter buffer. Both appear to have been NP3ed or NIBed.

    Now it looks like only the enhanced stroke carrier is available and then only as a complete kit. The silver colored coating is done and has been replaced with what? Maybe DLC or black nitride?

    Heck with it I've gone ahead and placed an order. I have a rifle I sort of want to reconfigure and might as well change the bolt and carrier while I'm at it.

    As thorough as you are, I can't wait to see your first hand thoughts on it.

    I appreciate the confidence. I'll do my best to be impartial and objective.

    Dueck Defense shipped the same day the order was placed.

    The rifle I wanted to rebarrel will have to stay "as issued" for awhile. The barrel I want to try is out of stock and won't be available for a couple months. In the meantime I'll run the bolt carrier to see how it does.

    The rifle in question is a Ruger that's built using a Ballistic Advantage carbine gas barrel with A2 front sight base. It currently has a NiB bolt carrier and Geissele buffer and spring. I use the gun suppressed from time to time so the buffer has three tungsten weights in it.

    Maybe it will end up being a pretty good test bed for the Surefire carrier and short buffer.
