Is the Aero Precision Nickel Boron BCG the Best on the Market?

Are you a fan of cheap, mil-spec, or high quality gun parts? A conversation with a Marine buddy had us laughing, “… people actually think mil-spec is high quality”. As a former supply Marine, I can tell you it’s not all its cracked up to be. For bolt carrier groups, the Aero Precision Nickel Boron BCG is the high quality part you’re looking for.

Difference between mil-spec and Aero Precision Nickel Boron BCG

All service members understand the time and effort needed to clean your rifle after the range. As a civilian, we’re certain you do too. Breaking down the rifle, taking out the charging handle and bolt, and the buffer and spring.

Taking the bolt apart isn’t rocket science – but it’s messy. Your hands, guaranteed to get dirty.

Never mind the dirty hands – what about getting all the carbon off the bolt carrier group? You’ll take the components apart, wipe them down, add your cleaning solution, and start brushing the BCG components.

You’ll spend some time here. Your hands are dirty. The bolt is dirty. But, when will it all get clean?

There’s a better way.

The Aero BCG that makes cleaning bolt carrier group easy

Any Aero BCG is manufactured with the highest quality and processes possible. Just like their rifles. But this bolt is top notch in its entire catalogue. Aero Precision’s Nickel Boron BCG has many benefits.

#1. Bolt Carrier Group Aesthetic

Every shmuck at the range will have a black BCG. Maybe they have some class and will have an Aero Precision BCG. Imagine rolling up with a nickel boron colored BCG – you’ll stand out. Especially against a black rifle.

#2. Reliability and Corrosion Resistance

Your bolt carrier group will ware down. You’ll experience it as some point. You can replace individual pieces or spring for a whole new bolt carrier group.

Aero’s BCG’s are made from a couple different types of steel. The bolt itself is made from high quality 9310 steel, while the carrier itself is made from 8620 steel.

During testing the Aero Precision Nickel Boron BCG proved to be the highest quality BCG compared to the phosphate and nitride BCG.

#3. Easier to Clean

Picking up a phosphate bolt carrier group, it almost feels porous. The nitride is slightly better. Holding the Nickel boron BCG though – you don’t have those concerns. This makes it easier to clean.
