With strength in mind, Toolcraft made their Bolts from heavy duty 9310 Alloy Steel and their Bolt Carriers from 8620 case-hardening aircraft grade steel. 9310 steel has a high core strength rating, high fatigue strength, and a high hardenability rating overall. Normally, 9310 steel is used for gears and crankshafts in massive trucks and large aircraft, so its easy to see why it would make an ideal Bolt for an AR. Why 9310 instead of Mil-Spec Carpenter 158 steel? Simple, 9310 is an AISI standard grade tool steel which, when properly treated, actually makes it about 7% stronger than “mil-spec” Carpenter 158. The proof is in the numbers. The carrier material, 8620 is used for various aircraft and vehicular applications, has a superior toughness rating, and features solid overall strength properties. So when you combine these two outstanding steels with Toolcraft’s superb machining, you get a BCG that is an optimal choice for your next 458 SOCOM or 450 Bushmaster AR build.
The Toolcraft 458 SOCOM/450 Bushmaster Bolt Carrier Group comes in the Salt Black Nitride finish to upgrade your existing AR build with an excellent, long lasting BCG.

NOTE- The Salt Black Nitride BCG offers the dark, subdued finish that doesn’t change the specs of the Bolt Carrier, but it still makes the outside of the Bolt Carrier harder. This treatment increases the longevity of the part, makes it extremely wear resistant and durable, and this treatment protects the part from corrosion.
