Cryptic Coatings Mystic Black Bolt Carrier Group .308 Winchester

Recently I was researching 308 Bolt Carrier Groups for our CT Other Light Weight AR-10 build and I decided to go with a Toolcraft BCG as that’s the brand BSF Barrels uses to headspace their Carbon Fiber Barrels like the one I bought for the aforementioned 308 build mentioned above. Unfortunately, I couldn’t locate the Toolcraft BCG I needed but some additional research lead me to Cryptic Coatings, specifically their Mystic Black Bolt Carrier Group.

I spent a decent amount of time reading Cryptic Coatings Mystic Black Bolt Carrier Group Reviews and decided I MUST buy one. Unfortunately, the Mystic Black in .308 Winchester was out of stock. I was bummed out but not deterred as Primary Arms let me backorder one BCG. I also decided to send an email to Cryptic Coatings. To my surprise, I received a call from the wonderful Karen H of Cryptic Coatings who graciously offered to save me one from the next run of .308 Mystic Black Bolt Carriers.

Three days later the Primary Arms order was delivered and about a month later Karen called me again to tell me my BCG had shipped. So yes I now own two very nice and expensive Cryptic Coatings Mystic Black Bolt Carrier Groups.
