The extension which fits into the rear of the bolt carrier- how does it weigh?

According to their data sheet for the Gen3 the housing is 8.5oz and the BCG adapter is 2 oz

Thanks. That seems like a lot of weight to be adding to the carrier.

Para I picked one up three weeks ago and a buddy did also. Between the two of us we have probably 600-700 rounds or so through them combined. A mix of slow and rapid fire as well as suppressed. Neither of us have had one issue with it. He put his on his 11.5" pistol and I put mine on my SBR. I also put three mags through my 300 BLK upper suppressed and non suppressed. Other than a few failures to lock back on empty there are no issues. BCM recommends varying buffer weights for the 300 BLK so I attribute the failure to lock back on empty to the ammunition.

Just another data point on this. I've had several adapters on different guns without issue across a lot of rounds. That said everything I installed them on is a 16" 5.56 gun and I don't run wimpy/crappy ammo ever.

Mine has been 100% between a 16" mid-length and the 10.5" carbine length with Wolf 55 grain and various other brass cased ammo...no issues with BCGs not locking back on the last round.

As a note to others.. I owned one, pretty much over night. Put it on and took it right off. The problem I had was just what I expected from looking at the photos. It was uncomfortable, the hinge pin dug into the second knuckle of my thumb working the safety or grabbing or manipulating the gun. I might have been able to learn to live with it if it was serving any real purpose, but having the gun uncomfortable to use all the time, for the rare occasion where folding it would be important just wasn't worth the trade off.

I have decent sized hands, it may not be an issue for everyone.

Hey cas...What gen was it...there were mods done from gen one to gen three that made them more user friendly.

Uh, yeah, when he whips out hs blaster at 1:10 in that video, he obviously has a round already chambered- with the stock folded. It may look cool on video, but who carries theur AR with a round chambered, and who would be foolish enough to have a round chambered in a rifle that would be damaged/disabled by firing a round without first opening that stock?

No failures between 11.5" 5.56 suppressed and unsuppressed and 8.5" 300 Blackout suppressed.

I could see getting another.

The 3rd Gen added the ability to fire a single shot (of course) folded without damage.
Why one would carry with a round chambered still unknown but one can fire folded if some need were to arrise.

Mine works like a charm. Lots of options for hiding/concealing a 11.5” SBR with it.

Edited ...

Just saw it at Brownell's for $199 + shipping, is that a good price?


If you really want something you'll find a way ...
... if you don't you'll find an excuse.

I'm really not a "kid" anymore ... but I haven't grown up yet either Wink

That's the price of the one I bought at Brownell's...toss in something like gas rings to bring the order up over $200 and use the code H7L (it should still be an active code) at checkout to knock $20 off and receive free shipping...

That's the best price I've seen on the adapter and if you are not satisfied Brownell's is good to deal with for returns.

If youre carrying it vs transporting it who wouldn't carry it chambered? Gen 3 can be fired folded with no damage
