    I think that is about as low as I'd expect.

    So I ordered that barrel. I got a confirmation email saying that it will ship soon. Then I saw a guy running from my porch yesterday. I opened the door to see what he was doing, and there was the barrel.

    Now I’m looking at BCGs. I have heard that since the barrel has a nickel boron feed ramp extension, a nickel boron BCG is a good match. True? I am looking at this one. https://www.armorally.com/shop/ar15-...kel-boron-bcg/

    Anything else I should be looking at?

    I do not like NIB for BCG coating and would just go phosphate. NIB is not really effective and starts to wear quickly. If you want something coated my choice would be NP3 followed by nitride. Sionics makes a reallly nice NP3 BCG and i think armorally offers the toolcraft in Nitride and DLC which would both be better options than NIB

    I have not used it but from what I have read would def be a better option than NIB. If you want info on all the different BCG options check out Chris Bartocci on YouTube. I think his channel is small arms solutions. He did a the part series on different BCG types and coatings.

    He personally speaks highly of chrome and had a lot of industry experience as a former employee of Colt and several others as well as authored Black Rifle 2

    NP3/NP3+
    Chrome
    Nitride
    Phosphate

    In that order. However, I probably would buy a known-quality phosphate before an unknown quality nitride, which most of them are. Above that, it just depends how much you are open to spending. I personally buy NP3 when I want supercool, and phosphate when I want a gun that just runs.
