The AIRIX ARMOR High-Precision M16 Bolt Carrier Group significantly exceeds mil-spec performance through a combination of an improved precision-grinding process and application of Diamond-Like Carbon coating for improved lubricity, tolerance, reliability and longevity. 

These bolt carrier groups are presented without compromise or peer. 

Along with the exterior, we precision grind all interior dimensions of the carrier, giving the carrier group a nearly friction-less feel. Aggressive tooling-replacement intervals, next-gen treatments and other QA/QC innovations maintain ideal steel substrate composition for application of DLC.

The Diamond-Like Carbon (DLC) coating is harder and slicker than nitride, nickel boron, phosphate and other low-cost carrier coatings,  The DLC Carrier improves reliability, reducing maintenance requirements, makes cleaning easier, results in more accurate uppers when paired with properly spec'd barrels (and barrel extensions) - with a measurably more transverse bolt face.

Rigidity and smoothness are ideal characteristics of the carrier itself, but different approaches are required for different operating parts.  Some parts like the bolt and cam pin can benefit from a little bit of increased ductility, so we have the Bolt coated in blacknitride+ (a proprietary product improvement on typical "nitriding"  by H&M, The DLC/Blacknitride+ interface that is the bolt/carrier mating is essentially ideal from a technical perspective.

The extractor is also a beneficiary of increased ductility, so after machining from a billet and undergoing treatments it is coated in phosphate to also hold lube for ideal ejection patterns. 

We use a VITON O-ring insert in the extractor for the best possible outcomes and utilize an enhanced extractor insert. 

The gas key is precisely machined from a billet and DLC Coated, then seated and staked with Grade-8 fasteners. 

The Bolt is Shot-Peened, Magnetic Particle Inspected, and all parts are subjected to rigorous spec requirements.

We have several test units with over 60k rounds of hard-schedule firing, still going strong. 

Our BCG  is 100% American Made in all respects and that will never change.
