Alex Pro Bolt Carrier Group AR-10 308AR Nickel Boron DPMS Compatible

There was a time when 308AR/AR-10 bolt carriers were often in short supply. I remember some of us would send each other email messages if we found 308AR/AR-10 Bolt Carrier Groups before announcing them to 308AR.com forums. Today the 308AR/AR-10 Bolt Carrier Groups seem to be everywhere. Some from long time well known and well established firearm manufacturers and other from manufacturers I never heard. Todays entry is the latter. I happened across the “Alex Pro Bolt Carrier Group AR-10 308AR Nickel Boron DPMS Compatible” while browsing The Sportsmans Guide website.

Note:The Sportsmans Guide seems to have a possible mix up between phosphate and nickel boron. Check the product titles and descriptions of this Bolt Carrier Group as well before ordering.

A quick internet search lead me to the “Alex Pro Firearms Armory”. If anyone has experience with Alex Pro send a message.

Installation Instructions
Engineered to provide a much longer service life than standard extractors, the JP .308 Enhanced Extractor is an easily swappable component for any DPMS pattern bolt to eliminate extraction problems, premature extractor failure and other malfunctions resulting from the extractor not clearing the case rim. While designed to remedy these extractor‐specific problems, the JP Enhanced Extractor will not solve issues stemming from poor chambering or over‐gassing. If your rifle continues to experience extraction issues with this component installed, the problem lies elsewhere. Refer to the section below regarding such failures.
To remove your existing extractor, use an appropriately sized punch to drive out the extractor pin. On all current JP EnhancedBolts, this pin can be inserted/removed in only one direction. With the pin out, the extractor will then be easily removable and should retain the extractor spring, which need not be removed from the extractor. Install the JP Enhanced Extractor in the same manner making sure that the extractor spring with rubber insert and the O‐ring remain in assembly.

ADDITIONAL EXTRACTION ISSUES
Although much development, thought and testing have been put into optimizing the performance and durability of this extractor, it is important to know that other factors enter into an extraction failure and some of these are beyond the ability of any extractor to overcome. If you have a rifle that has extraction issues, it is important to find and address the root causes that may not be related to design deficiencies of the extractor itself.

Note that if you see the rim of fired cases slightly bent to the rear from extraction, this is an indication that your rifle is on the verge of not extracting or breaking the rim off the case. These cases should then be discarded and not reloaded. The cause of this should then be determined and addressed.

  1. Over‐pressured ammunition causes the case to extrude into every minor imperfection in
    the walls of the chamber. The case will then stick and fail to release from the chamber during
    the firing process. For reliable extraction, the case must relax and release the chamber
    during the firing cycle.
  2. Port pressure that is too high or too sudden will cause the extractor to break the rim off the
    case before it has a chance to release the chamber. Excessive port pressure causes too rapid
    a pressurization of the bolt/carrier assembly, which in turn attempts to extract the case too
    quickly before it is “ready” to come out. If the port is close to the chamber as in the carbine
    port position, this exacerbates the problem further. An adjustable gas system can usually
    solve this issue.
  3. Micro flaws in the chamber of any self‐loading rifle are an invitation for a malfunction. If the
    chamber has reamer marks, scratches from sand or grit, rust pits or any negative features
    into which brass from the casing can extrude during the firing process, this will literally lock
    the case in the chamber and defeat the best of extractors. If these anomalies are not overly
    severe, the chamber may be recoverable with a good polish. Rust pits, however, usually
    spell the end of a good barrel. A ring depression from a bad or fouled reamer is also not
    recoverable, and the upper will have to be re‐barreled.

There are a couple simple reasons to utilize a Nickel Boron 308 AR Bolt Carrier Group in your 308AR and AR-10 rifles. The Nickel Boron Coating by FailZero is super slippery this means the bolt carrier group can operate with much less lubricant, the bolt carrier group will be easier to clean and the coating should allow the bolt carrier group to outlast the weapon under normal operating conditions. Less wear will also occur in the upper receiver. The finish also looks pretty slick.

Drop-in bolt and carrier group has a self-lubricating surface that eliminates the need to apply oil or grease that can attract dirt, dust, unburned powder, and carbon and lead to cycling failures. Proprietary EXO-treated Nickel Boron finish produces an exceptionally hard surface that’s 40% more wear resistant than chrome plating, with an ultra-low friction coefficient. Surface is actually harder than the substrate underneath and will not peel, flake, gall, or rub off. EXO-treated Nickel Boron finish bolt/carrier groups have been tested to function reliably without additional lubrication up to 50,000 rounds. Reduced friction also means less heat generated by metal-on-metal contact, so the gun runs cooler and parts last longer. Easy to clean, too—fouling brushes right off. Before treatment, parts are shot peened for surface uniformity and magnetic particle inspected to make sure there are no hidden flaws. Gas key is hardened to USGI specs, chrome lined to resist erosion, and comes already staked to the carrier.
