Any using a Bootleg B.C.G. ? Login/Join

I’m thinking of getting one of these to help control the gas to my face while shooting my AR’s suppressed.. especially indoors. I haven’t seen a hands down “yes it works”. It’s a bit of a pricey experiment at $150+. Hopefully someone has one. Thanks!

I haven't used one.

Adjustable gas blocks worked for me. And RTV sealant on the CH.

They have been out for 2-3 years now and seem well made (Bootleg is a partner with PWS). It would be an easy fix if it works as described. I have a Superlative Arms gas block on one gun, but this is a more simple fix.

Geissele ACH/SCH does this for me, along with a properly gassed rifle in the first place.

I never get gas to the face in my suppressed ARs.

Yes it works. They are great, with two caveats: you have to start with a properly ported barrel and use a low back pressure can.

I have experience with the Gemtech SBC, which is made for GT by Bootleg. A friend has one in his lmt mrp 10.5 upper. Suppressor is a DeadAir Sandman S. We shot it a ton on my Colt m16a1 lower. With a properly ported barrel, it is fantastic. Zero gas/carbon blowback. ROF is perfect, not jacked up in speed. In contrast, use it on a barrel with a large port and with a high back pressure can, and it’s less impressive - case in point my 10.5 noveske with aac M4-2k.

Start with a properly ported barrel and use a can that minimizes back pressure (SF or DeadAir) and I think you’ll be very pleased.

The only complaint about both the GT and Bootleg offerings is they do a crap staking job, use loctite on the gas key screws, and use cheap YFS screws. That’s a quick fix.

I have a Gemtech branded BCG in my 12.5” Suppressed Aero SBR. Never any issues and does cut down on the gas to the face issue.



Success always occurs in private, and failure in full view.

Thanks guys, I think I’ll give one a whirl. I have two SBR’d AR’s that I shoot suppressed, they need some help in this area.

I'm going to try the Geissele ACH on my SBR for next try. I only get gas face indoor shooting. Never notice it outdoors.

Yep, I have the Gemtech bolt carrier and like it.
I was waiting on Black Friday for Gemtech to post a sale but nothing. Found Bootleg, really goof BF sale , so I ordered 2.
Haven’t been to the range to try the Bootleg yet.
Going to put Geissele charging handles to replace BCM handles for a better “gas” seal.

Are the Geissele charging handle that good at keeping gas off your face? I bought a Radian Raptor-SD with the cuts awhile back when there was a blem-sale, and it works pretty good.

I’m planning on picking one up for a Grendel build. The ability to switch setting without having to use a tiny little Allen wrench to adjust an adjustable gas block makes it a winner.
