warthog984 Posted August 11, 2014 Report Share Posted August 11, 2014 (edited) So....I just got my second DPMS bolt carrier group today from Midway USA. The first one I got had a bad ejector and the roll pin for the ejector was really beat up. This was causing my issues with getting round to chamber. I called Midway and they sent me a new BCG. I have yet to send the old one back because I replaced the ejector and roll pin and I know it works. I was thinking of keeping the second BCG, but I a was a little concerned when I saw how sloppy the bolt fits in the carrier. It feels like the gas rings are making good contact, but the forward face of the bolt is moving around. I have never had a bolt this sloppy in any of my AR15s. Also, the firing pin retainer was really loose. No big deal except someone ground the tip of the retaining pin and it looks like poop. I have always steered clear of DPMS. Not a big fan of Freedom Group. I felt this may have been my best option for my build. Does anyone else notice QC issues from DPMS parts? I will have this BCG exchanged for a new one, but I am hoping the new one is fine. Any other brands that I should be looking at for DPMS pattern? My understanding is that Fulton Armory is a re-branded DPMS. Edited August 11, 2014 by warthog984 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
