Anyone know anything about these guys? Saw this news flash on AR15News

http://www.ar15news....on-308-bcg-218/

 

It has all the right stuff it would seem... just not sure if they are known at all? Plus the deal thru AR15News is a pretty damn good price. I have my Harris Tact BCG, but never hurts to have a spare,

Sorry... guess I need to look/search more. Just figured it would be in the 'parts' area! I might just have to get a backup...

I don't think he meant anything about needing to search around more first...just letting you know where she was. No need to apologize, that was a pretty logical assumption you made.

Here's the thread.

Haha! No worries... I am on a few boards where the motto is 'Read More, Post Less and Search Often'! I know better...   LMAO

Be curious to see if the quality is good...  $218 for a 308 BCG seems damn good.

Has anyone been able to get one of these - they've had my money for a month and a half and won't reply to my

request for a update on the status of my order, their website just says "processing" are these guys trustworthy? Thanks

Yep. A couple of us guys got one of these. It took a little time for mine also. Haven't built the rifle yet that I bought it for, so I can't speak as far as function. But it looks pretty well made.


I'm still watching you mister.............

  BCG works just fine in my 16" build . Only have a couple hundred rounds with it, but after cleaning it the other day , it still looks like I just took it out of the box.

I love mine, but the NiB BCG seems to take on a light gray/black stain that just won't come clean. I tried the Fireclean on it and it doesn't seem to clean up any better than regular cleaning with Hoppe's #9. Other than that cosmetic item, it's a great BCG.

There's a couple stories out there of NiB "burning" and changing colors. The reason behind it is different each time; inadequate lube, wrong kind if lube, bad loads, poor quality parts/build. The list of possible reasons goes on and on... The only constant is that even with the color change, the NiB coating holds strong and continues to perform.

Having Tom and I post on the same thread is like having two fat chics at a night club. It doesn't matter what song is playing, we are going to take over the dance floor.

I found that the best way to get in touch with Shadow Ops is through their facebook page.  I really like my lower, but it took awhile to get.

Lol. I burned my .308 a little. I ran it for over a year without any lube.... just to prove a good build doesnt need lube. It ran 100% the whole time. I never even cleaned it the whole time.

Ive switched to FireClean since then.
