    Do Polish KbK Kits in circulation have Forced Matched Bolt Carriers? “Pic Heavy”

    Before I start this thread I want to point out that I am not trying to attack nor smear AoA because I understand that things can and do happen. AoA has been a valuable resource to me in the past and I have not had any prior negative experiences with them of which to speak.

    My only intent here is to reach out to those with more experience than me, who have handled their share of parts kits and such to shed some light on a possible issue with the current Milled Polish KbK kits in circulation.

    It was made mention to me on a thread I created “https://www.theakforum.net/forums/14...k-kit-aoa.html” that the Bolt Carrier Group might possibly be of new/newer manufacture and was forced matched somewhere in Poland before they were acquired here in the states. I do not have very much to go on but If anyone out there could shed some light on this issue I would be very grateful

    Looks fine and original to me. But it has been sand/media blasted at some point.

    Look at JoMommas post here, he recently close up photos of his bolt carrier. https://www.theakforum.net/forums/27...uestion-2.html

    Thanks Pinakar, his looks very similar to mine, sand blasting would make some sense, it has kind of some staining on the grey like a purplish rainbow sheen as if there was some chemical treatment applied.

    I've made my comments, so i'll let you make up your own mind on this. However, I will try to dig out one or 2 of my KbK 'N' kits that i got from Apex and take some good pictures of the bolt and carrier for comparrison.
