    I bought the spikes Nickel boron. Slicker then owl snot. Works well. I find clean up real easy but where the bolt tail sits inside the carrier.that part of the carrier is still tough to clean. (where the gas key expels the gas)It's looks chrome lined like the standard. I've read good and bad reviews about them. Some say they freeze up inside the upper. Never had that issue. I would say for the extra money a Parked one is just fine. I use LMT's in my AR's and the spikes sits in the safe as a back up.

    They used to be quite a bit more expensive, AIM Surplus and PSA have them for $99. I bought one from AIM and it had free shipping. A lot of their AR parts ship free.

    I have it in a 300BLK and haven't put it to a good test yet. It's working great so far though.

    555th yes I bought one, well hell I buy just about anything weapon related that sounds good. Never really had any problems with the original designed bolt carrier group. Even on a bit of full auto.
    Is it a necessary improvement over something that is working? I do not know? Guess maybe in real harsh conditions, like our Troops in sandy environments it may help?
    All I do now is take the ARs too the range, fire a few rounds then come home and spend the day cleaning them. So no real tests of it on my part.

    I have the AIM NIB bolt , in my 300 pistol . If you run surpressed it is worth it because it cleans up easy.

    So, You've noted more fowling with a suppressed firearm nhgunnut? I'd often wondered about that being an issue or not and could only imagine it would be by restricting the gas's.

    That's true, they have come down quite a bit. I bought a couple of these when they were on sale for $79. Very nice BCG. Slicker than snot on a doorknob.
