BoomFab Titanium Carrier needs Refinished

Recommended Posts

Any recommendations on someone who can remove the wearing factory finish and put a finish on my Ti carrier?

If the website is accurate, the "finish" is the result of the heat treating process, not something applied to the carrier.  Easy fix- you could rub it with a green 3M pad(~300 grit), with a dab of gun oil for lube, and produce a nice brushed finish, or go further, taking the finish down to the gray 3M pad (~600 grit), then using metal polish to produce a nice bright-polish.

 

I guess you could have a nitride finish applied, which should produce the gold coloration.  Any nitride finisher should be able to tell you if that's true, how much, etc..

It's an AR-15 bolt carrier made of titanium.  I had to look it up too.   

 

Apparently it's also been discontinued by the manufacturer who is also out of business so either its price or durability were show stoppers.

Not necessarily, a lot of businesses with excellent products at reasonable prices have gone out of business due to a variety of reasons, like under capitalization, poor inventory control, etc...

No one is or was buying $700 BCG.

Nonsense, they were only like $550 and Keith Garcia claimed that instant match wins were mixed in with the special sauce.

No, it was Benell...err Bredas. Yeah that's the ticket now! 

There were a couple places that did coatings on gun parts but outside of H&M the majority have stopped. Max probably has the most experience with steel but as far as titanium you might need to do some heavy external research.

So all I need is a $550 BCG and $400 magic headphones and I'll be unstoppable? Why didn't you tell me that a few years ago, I could've saved a lot of money.

@jrbet83 other than the worn finish how are the Boomfab carriers working for you? They were the heat for a while but I haven't heard any end user reviews since the company went under.
