    Has anyone been able to find any full auto AR-15 bolt carrier groups in stock?

    The ONLY Auto BCG I can find in stock appears to be Bravo Company's. I am very fond of BCM and their products, however, I don't own a BCM rifle and find the BCM logo on the BCG to be a bit annoying. Seems, however, this is the only BCG in stock ANYWHERE.

    Please let me know if you guys know of any sources.


    NOTE: I'm currently running LMT Auto BCG's on my other riflles.

    Wow, first I have seen that someone wants anything but a BCM. Usually people are complaining about then being them not being in stock.
    Anyhow, PSA had them on sale this weekend for $129 and it seems that PKF has a few in stock... http://www.pkfirearms.com/Bolt_Assemblies/26/c

    A semi-auto will work fine as well. I have semi-auto carriers in a couple of rifles and if I handed it to you to shoot you couldn't tell me what kind of carrier is in the rifle. I have no reliability issues with any of them.

    Everyone thinks they have to have a full auto carrier because you aren't tacticool unless you do. Really doesn't make .05 difference in anything. The very small difference in weight between the two versions isn't enough to matter.

    Usually, I’m too busy concentrating on the front sight rather than noticing logos. I also keep the dust cover closed when I am not shooting. :whistling::supergrin:

    I bought a BCM BCG for my rifle and carbine 2 years ago. I have been very happy with them. They work great.

    +1 You don't need a full auto BCG in your AR, it does not offer any advantages over semi auto. Ask anyone who has been in the AR world for a long time and they will tell you the same thing.

    It makes a difference in SBRs. I learned that the hard way.

    Why does anyone need a M16/M4 bolt carrier group? I'm not entirely sure that it is not considered part of a machine gun, thus you would have an illegal machine gun.

    The ONLY part that makes a gun a machine gun is the full auto sear. Nothing more, nothing less.

    ...M16 bolt carriers are not designed and intended solely and exclusively for use in converting a weapon into a machinegun and are not any combination of parts from which a machinegun can be assembled. Further, an M16 bolt carrier is not a firearm as defined in the GCA or a machinegun as defined in the NFA. An M16 bolt carrier is simply a machinegun part and as such its domestic sale and possession is unregulated under the Federal firearms laws. It is not unlawful to utilize a M16 machinegun bolt carrier in a semiautomatic AR15 type rifle.

    Not always the case. With AR/M4/M16, having any of the fire control parts (ie: hammer, sear, safety, disconnector, and maybe trigger) without a legit FA lower is a no-no. The bolt carrier is Ok, though.

    I prefer the added weight for carbine length. Just a personal preference.
