    I've got a BCM Auto BCG on order for my new NFA-legal LMT 10.5" upper going on my Bushmaster Patrolman lower. Since this upper didn't come with a BCG, what should I check when putting the BCG in? Is it "drop-in" ready?

    Most are close enough but the headspace should be checked, as an example combining a LMT barrel that was setup for a LMT bolt might be tight when used with a CMT bolt because most CMT bolts have a .153" back of lug to bolt face dim and most LMT bolts have a .148" BOL to BF dim. If the BCM bolts are Microbest bolts like I believe they are it should have a .150 BOL to BF dim which is in the middle of the other 2. Most of the time mix and match works, sometimes it doesn't.
