The [BRDC] AR-15 Aluminum Bolt Carrier is a revolutionizing innovation to AR-15 low mass bolt carrier to help manage your recoil. Manufactured out of 7075-T6 aerospace grade aluminum for reliability but our innovation does not stop there. [BRDC] now has 2 versions of the Alumium AR-15 low mass bolt carrier, the ALWC and the ALSK+. Read below about each one to see the difference.
ALWC AR-15 Aluminum Bolt Carrier, (Assembled Carrier)
The ALWC Aluminum AR-15 Bolt Carrier is a revolutionizing innovation to AR-15 low mass bolt carrier for the firearms industry. Reducing the recoiling mass of the AR-15 operating system to around half of the original design (6.0 ounces) and effectively reducing the shooters felt recoil. Use of a quality buffer system and an adjustable gas block will allow you to properly tune your weapon system to your ammo for better recoil management. Manufactured from 7075-T6 just like our ALSK+ and finished in a proprietary anodized coating for longevity. Our current ALWC has over 5000 rounds in a properly tuned weapon system with minimal signs of use.
Read below to see what additions have been made to the ALSK+ over the ALWC.
ALSK+ AR-15 Aluminum Bolt Carrier, (Assembled Carrier)
The ALSK+ AR-15 Bolt Carrier is manufactured the same way as the ALWC carriers. Manufactured from 7075-T6 and annodized in a proprietary process just like the ALWC. The difference is the longevity innovation supplied in the ALSK+ Bolt Carriers. Featuring a [patent pending] lightweight alloy skid plate that has been precision machined and permanently attached into the hammer engagement surface of the bottom of the AR-15 aluminum bolt carrier to extend it’s service life . Our proprietary anodizing coating and additional skid plate on the ALSK+ provide a better friction coefficient against engagement surfaces inside of the upper and against bearing surfaces while also allowing the life of the carrier to be similar to that of steel carriers but with a lighter felt recoil for the shooter.
Our proprietary aluminum anodizing and coating processes make our aluminum AR-15 bolt carrier perform to your expectations and more!
- 7075-T6 Aluminum Alloy
- M16 Cut Profile
- Proprietary Anodized Coating Process
- Staked and Seated Gas Key Included
- Patent Pending Affixed Skid Plate (ALSK+ Only)
- 3.5 ounces with key, approximately 6 ounces complete
- Carrier Only, additional components required
[BRDC] recommends the use of an adjustable gas system to be able to accurately tune the direct impingement forces applied to the key of the aluminum AR-15 bolt carrier, either ALWC or ALSK+ versions. The over gassing of your rifle system will cause additional wear of critical components and ultimately result in malfunctions and failures.
All [BRDC] products such as the ALSK+ Aluminum Bolt Carrier are tested rigorously in prototyping stages to ensure we are outputting a quality product that is held to our strict specifications and quality control requirements. All [BRDC] products are precision machined in a dedicated firearm component machine shop, we only manufacture for the firearms and defense industries.
