    Do we have any other reports of how long the extractor springs last? I took apart my bolt and compared the factory springs to some new pairs, and wouldn't you know it, the original springs seem to have quite a bit less tension. I have since replaced them as a precaution, but what I don't know is whether this was a product of wear or they came that way to begin with.

    No inconsistent ejection pattern observed with the enhanced bolt or carrier. On a side note, you cannot fit the LMT enhanced extractor springs with the LWRC rubber inserts, there's not enough room.

    Are you talking about these? Will these work?

    Yes, those are the rubber inserts I was referring to. I have not tried firing the gun with the LWRC springs themselves installed, they may work but I would personally prefer not to increase extractor tension so drastically.

    I'm kinda confused because I thought someone on this thread said they used the lwri ones.

If I'm not mistaken LMT does not use them in any of their rifles out of the factory.

    Inconsistent ejection, extraction, bcg running fast or slow depending on barrel length/port size/buffer weight/etc. Proprietary springs which have issues either out of the box or after a few K rounds, etc. I'm not sure if they are addressing any actual problem with it (vs a milspec bolt) or just selling it based on a marketing alone. Even if they are addressing some of deficiencies in theory, execution seems far from proper for a Tier-1 company.

    Compared to a number of BCM/Colt/DD BCGs/Bolts out there vs LMT enhanced it seems like issues constantly come up with LMT even in number count (in percentage terms that would be a few orders of magnitude more). Or is it just seems to me that way?
    I've been reading about the EBCG for years and I've always thought they sure caused a lot of trouble and didn't really ever fix anything.

    I've been around this site since the beginning and the people here generally seem to tinker and fiddlefart and upgrade things until they don't work.

    ETA: Which is not a bad thing as that's how innovation happens.

    Yes, you can put the LWRC 6.8 springs inside the LMT Enhanced bolt. I don't know how well they work but they do fit.

    What I was saying was that you cannot take the rubber inserts out of the LWRC springs and put them inside the LMT springs. This was an idea that I previously had in mind.
