    They use the same bolt carrier correct?
    Just a different bolt, barrel and mags?

    I actually knew about the mag, just poorly worded.
    Was not sure about the carrier.

    Thanks,.........:thumbsup:

    they DO NOT use the same magazine >>

    the mag body is different inside , more than just the follower....PRI or the newest C mags have been 100% for me in teh 25 round variety

    Like he said about the mags - different body and follower. PRI has had a significant defect rate (somewhere around 10-15%) with their 25 round mags for the last year in a half at least. If you like dealing with warranty support and paying top dollar go with them. If not, go with C-Products. If you need something more sturdy go with Barrett (I have dropped two different ones fully loaded on the feed lips with barely a scuff to show for it.)...

    Alaska, again (for now)
    You might play around with magazines.

    I can get P-mags to feed 6.8 in MY magazines. I know some other people have had issues. I can get the 20 rounders to feed without any issues as well.

    H&K mags with magpul followers seem to work so far. Will post after I have a few more rounds through them.

    The C-Products mags have been flawless for me as well as the Barrett's actually I prefer the C-Products being that there shorter and a hell of alot cheaper, their 5 rdrs are great also

    My best 6.8 mags are the C products that I installed the ranger plates on those stainless mag bodies are very tough.. once I polisehed all the edges on the edges on the followers they are super slick....
