    Finish on bolt and bolt carrier

    What type of finish is used on the bolt carrier and operating rod? It's seeming to wear fast form just a small amount of hand cycling. I have not yet fired the gun, and yes I do have it heavily oiled.

    This is not a big issue just wondering.

    I am not really allowed to say... trade secrets and all... But wear on the parts is normal.

    I posted this before.... and included pics...

    The bolt and carrier look pretty bad pretty fast.

    Not like an AR Bolt and carrier group.

    This is mine after 600 rounds. It works fine just looks rough

    It's a standard manganese phosphate (parkerized) finish. Anyone can refinish these parts. Lightly bead blast then phosphate.
