    Bolt Carrier Group... where oh where?

    So I need a buffer tube and a bolt carrier group to complete my first Ar. PSA is my prefered vender because they are only a couple miles from my house and as a local business owner I like to support businesses close to home. Anyway, for weeks their bolt carrier groups have been out of stock so I thought what would it hurt to lok around a little. I'm not saying they can't be found but a HUGE number of places list them as out of stock , no back orders.

    Whats up with this? Is their a single supplier for one critical part that no one can get? Just a huge demand? Or somethig else? Anyone know?

    Seems to be high demand. I waited till PSA had them back in stock last go round. Since they just had them on sale , it figures they may be out of stock again.

    In short, full auto BCGs are heavier and stronger.

    An M16/full auto BCG functions the same as a semi auto BCG in a semi auto gun. They're generally regarded as better because of their weight and more metal in the carrier

    I'd check Brownell's. I bought a FailZero bolt carrier from them awhile back and have been very happy with it.
