Bolt Carrier

Recommended Posts

Has anyone used the 9mm AR-Stoner bolt carrier Midway sells? I am tired of fixing my New Frontier carrier. Looking for something in the $100-$150 range.

One that I've run that's worked with everything...various uppers/barrels and triggers from Geissele/POF/Hiperfire/Rise/CMC without a hitch has been from Pickett's Mill Armory.  I got another one and they rotate between different uppers and such.  Dead nuts reliable.  All kinds of ammo from hollow points to flat points too.  Dediaced 9mm lower and a mil spec AR15 with Stern adapter, no probs.

The two best PCC bolts on the market are JP and Taccom. Both of them have numerous competitors running tens of thousands of rounds through them and they just plain work. Everything else is a crapshoot.

Save up. Buy a JP. Never think about it again.


If I were going to start another blowback build I’d echo this ^^^
I’d only add by saying spring for the newest short-stroke version, so if you ever want last round bolt hold open capability you’re already squared away.

 

Budget choice would be the Foxtrot Mike bolt, solid and under $100 when they’re in stock.

 

But, that said, there’s a lot to be said for “buy once, cry once” with a lot of this stuff...

My Faxon gen 2 bcg has been running reliably for the past two years for me.

I'm a big fan of the Taccom Extreme, it's run flawless for me.

 

Hope this helps.

I'll second this … both my Taccom bolts have always run 100%..
