3. Non MPI/HP tested bolts.

4. Inferior steel used for bolts. Mil-spec is 158 Carpenter, Bushy and DPMS do not use this, and there are a lot of bolts that shear teeth at relatively low round counts because of this.

5. QC issues. BM is known for shipping rifles with non-staked, finger tight castle nuts.

6. Use of commercial buffer tubes limits buttstock options.

For the same amount of money, there are much better options on the market. I'd steer clear, but what do I know, I'm just an armchair commando.


If I find the asshole that changed my bolt out I'm going to kick his ass

Accuracy issues is a shooter problem not the rifle

commercial buffer tubes?? HAHAHhahahahha!!!

so far just a bunch of internet garbage and BS
