NFM Elite Gas Bolt Carrier

NFM Elite Gas Bolt Carrier

NF Manufacturing is a custom rifle manufacturer focused on increasing overall performance of the AR platform. Our rifles are best-in-industry and proudly made in North Carolina.

Product Features:

Our Elite Gas Bolt Carrier is fluted front to back to reduce weight and disburse dirt and sand to prevent jamming. Then our entire carrier is super-finished to remove all machining marks and surface blemishes which improves the carrier’s friction coefficient rating and brings the carrier to a mirror finish. Finally, the DLC or PVD coating is applied which also drastically improves the coefficient rating to surpass that of Teflon while adding an extremely hard surface which makes the carrier almost as hard as diamond.

Overall, our carrier has ultra-low drag and is ideal for dusty, sandy, or wet conditions where no oil use is required. The super slick carrier allows for very low drag, reducing friction and allowing reduced gas pressure rifles to run more efficiently; it is a must have for every AR-15 platform. The advantages for using our carriers are increased lubricity, more wear resistant, smoother recoil, faster cyclic rate, easier cleaning, and less carbon fouling.
