    LMT Enhanced Bolt Question

    I am currently waiting for my LMT 16in upper to arrive.I ordered it with the full auto enhanced bolt carrier group.Now i have been reading that I may be better off with the regular bolt.I was just trying to get the best I could get.Other than maybe overspending, did I make a mistake?This is my first AR so bear with me.Are there any downsides to the enhanced bolt?

    The enhanced bolt might work just fine, but they tend to be picky on ammo. If you only shoot mil-spec ball then you will most likely be ok.

    I'd would just go with a Colt/FN/LMT or CMT M16 carrier and a regular bolt CMT MP tested bolt. I haven't seen a LMT 'enhanced' carrier work in anything but a 14.5" full-auto w/M855. It's a solution is search of a problem.

    I run two in two different 16 inch weapons and both cycle fully using everything from Wolf to M-193 spec ammo. And I run a heavy MGI RRB buffer in both.

    Perhaps they have fixed the issues in the later production.

    I'm slow. What were these bolts supposed to "enhance?"

    My LMT enhanced has run very well so far on mixed ammo.

    They are supposed to be more resistant to breaking lugs due to design features in both the bolt and carrier among other things.
