    I tried a Brownells lightweight, Faxon lightweight and a MRA glide bcg. All had the same issue with the ejection port cover. If the bcg has material removed from the sides to reduce weight (from my experience) there's a good chance it won't open the cover either reliably or at all. These bcg's did the same thing when tried in all 4 of my builds. Ejection port covers are Aero Precision, Stag Arms, Phase 5 and an engraved cover that I have no idea what brand they made it from.

    I'm not complaining as I needed an excuse to buy the Brownells Titanium bcg anyways. I have found it to be well worth the few extra bucks.

    It's called a Brownells Titanium M16 or AR15 bcg because they are made to standard dimensions.

    So true!!

    But in all seriousness you just have to wait for a 10% off sale AND make another email account so they send you a $10 off coupon. It actually ends up quite affordable.

    Is anyone running the Armaspec stealth recoil spring with a Brownells low mass bcg and rifle length gas system? Should I go with the carbine 3.3 oz.?

    The JP Enterprises Aluminum Ultra Light Bolt Carrrier works fine for opening a port door. It is by far the lightest carrier I have found, keep in mind it will wear and it's a consumable item. I have one in my 6.5 Grendel upper, got about 400 rounds through it. I'm guessing it will last 3000-5000 rounds.

    Lol I have been running my AR without one for a couple years now.

    Function has not been affected.

    I don't doubt that one bit. Unfortunately, our AR's are range toys and all things considered a restricted rifle a pretty pampered tool.

    I know 1 of my MS's will be used and abused compared to my other ones. Dust cover would be necessary, imo.

    Does anyone know how I can remove the rear takedown pin and what is required to fit an aftermarket pin like a KNS or V Seven titanium pin? I am receiving my rifle soon and would like to buy some pins beforehand.
