The new .223 Rem./5.56 NATO Ultimate Bolt Carrier Group from POF USA ($274.99) was developed to solve simple issues that plague standard direct impingement bolt carrier groups. The Ultimate Bolt Carrier Group is machined from a solid piece of alloy steel, eliminating the need to stake the gas key and preventing gas key screws from coming loose during operation. The carrier itself is high phosphate, nickel coated and features a chrome plated bolt. This bolt carrier group features a stainless steel gas inlet tube that is pressed and pinned into the solid gas key. This tube has been designed to allow ample clearance for the removal of the roller cam pin during maintenance. It weighs .70 pounds and measures 7.50 inches long overall. It is equally happy dancing with either .223 Rem. or 5.56 NATO ammunition in direct gas impingement rifles. Contact Patriot Ordnance Factory, Dept. OT; Tel.: (623) 561-9572: www.pof-usa.com
