    From memory the MPI was always done, the HPT appears to be a new(er) feature.

    IIRC Toolcraft does not make bolts, they source them from other companies.

    It is very possible Primary Arms specified HPT when they purchased the BCGs. It certainly does not mean all Toolcraft BCGs have HPT bolts.

    That's also a hell of a price from a retailer with a stand-up reputation.

    Toolcraft makes the carriers and Swan Machine make the bolts which are covered under the Toolcraft lifetime warranty. My question was about the MPI and HPT though.

    Toolcraft will provide pretty much anything you want and agree that likely Primary Arms speced it out that way and it is a heck of a price but pretty much just price matching PSA.

    How would you say it stacks up against a Microbest?

    They will give the customer what they want spec wise. The PA HPT ones must be newer.

    The only Hpt/MPI branded toolcraft I knew of was the nitride and fancy coated ones sold through their retail arm, Cryptic Coatings

    I have been buying the SOLGW (microbest OEM) bcg's on PA when they have them on sale for 114.99.

    I like that they have the extra power springco extractor spring and think it is worth the small premium

    I can't say for sure but would guess you get a higher level of QA/QC both from the OEM and SOLGW. I believe that every bolt is Hpt/MPI on Son's and guessing batch tested on the toolcraft. Not 100 percent sure though
