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.

I did see that one but I don't know the dif between it and a std ar15 bcg. Can you fill me in?
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
Left to right: AR15 carrier, AR15 carrier, M16 carrier

I'd check Brownell's. I bought a FailZero bolt carrier from them awhile back and have been very happy with it.
FWIW - PSA has M16 BCG MP tested in stock as of 0400 today.
