RTB AR15 Lightweight Carrier - Black Nitride (carrier only)

Featuring our new Right To Bear Lightweight carrier, weighing in at approximately 6.8 Ounces, or 194.1 Grams for you lightweight build fanatics! Using our low mass Carrier creates less reciprocating mass moving back and forth inside the action, which reduces recoil significantly. Our lightweight carrier also allows proper cycling with less gas. When used in conjunction with an adjustable gas block & reduced power buffer spring, you can tune the gas way down, which will reduce muzzle rise and carbon build up.

The increased lubricity from the Black Nitride process allows you to take full advantage of its lightweight profile. The slick surface combined with our lightweight carrier, creates very little resistance and allows the rifle to cycle smoother and increases reliability.

Pretty good function with visible imperfections. August 17, 2019
Reviewer: SGM from Phoenix, AZ United States  
To start, the carrier is pretty light, and paired with a Taccom light weight rifle buffer system and reduced power spring, it makes full 6.8 SPC II power loads super soft recoiling.

My only gripe with the carrier is noticeable machining marks in the interior. While I understand it's not something I paid top dollar for, I'd hope for these to be cleaned up a bit before they have them nitrided. I doubt it'll cause any function issues or undue wear though.

Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Yucaipa, CA United States  
Paired with reduced power spring on a midlength build and a muzzle break, it reduces recoil similar to that of a 10/22.

I did not expect much. Was pleasantly surprised. February 11, 2019
Reviewer: Ryan from Houston Area, TX, United States  
This thing cost me so little that I was sure it was a total gamble of a buy (it was $65 at the time of buying). Turns out it's a great bolt carrier. It fits like a glove and runs like a top. It's got a well staked gas key (which tends to be pretty unusual on a low cost carrier). Feather light. Would definitely buy again.

It was extremely hard to find a light weight, standalone bolt carrier, especially at a reasonable price. Shout out to RTB for delivering a great carrier at a great price.
