We just can't help not accepting the status quo. Bolt carrier groups are available aplenty, but few could meet our exacting standards for performance and value. Seeing "MIL-SPEC" as just the starting point, we set out to ensure the best options are available for our demanding customers.
Improvements include using 9310 tool steel for the bolt, which is stronger and nitriding the assembly to increase surface hardness, decrease resistance, and have superior corrosion resistance compared to typical chrome and phosphated bolt carrier groups. All bolts are fully MPI tested to ensure the material is sound and without defects. Bolt lugs are chamfered 45 degrees to ensure reliable action for even the highest pressure hand loads and fast lightweight actions. Extractors are S7 Tool Steel. From there, the extractor is sprung using the spring, o-ring, and silicone insert.

Note - Bolts ordered and deployed with barrels not specifically checked by Faxon for headspacing MUST be checked to ensure safe and reliable function. Faxon recommends Pacific Tool & Gauge headspace kits for all measurements. For detailed instructions on headspacing, see our blog post for instructions.
