A decade ago, Faxon Firearms was the brainchild of Bob Faxon, who dreamed up a design for an AR15 upper receiver that he had always wanted, but the current rifles didn’t provide. During these past ten years, Faxon Machining has machined over thirty million parts and performed far better than six million hours of machine work. Adding a list of certifications and awards to the company’s history, Faxon earned the privilege of working with world-class customers.

Although you may be able to locate a bolt carrier group that accommodates both .308 and 6.5 Creedmore round, it’s doubtful you’ll find one that equals the BCG from Faxon Firearms. The Generation Two BCG from builds on the perfection of the original with improvements that include using 9310 tool steel for the bolt, which is more robust than traditional C158 steel, and then nitrides the entire assembly to increase the surface hardness while minimizing resistance. This feature provides superior qualities and better corrosion resistance than bolt carrier groups with chrome or Maganese Phosphate finishes.
Another feature that puts the Faxon BCG in a separate league is the proprietary Superfinish Faxon Firearms applies to further reduce friction and increase a much smoother operation while minimizing fouling. Each Gen 2 BCG from Faxon Firearms is Full-auto-fire rated and accommodates full-auto fire control groups and newer multi-stage trigger systems. The gas keys of the Faxon Firearms bolt carrier group are fashioned from grade eight fasteners and are fully staked to provide years of reliable and dependable service. Faxon Firearms builds the Gen 2 BCG bolt with .308 Spec Springs and a dual O-ring installed, and the entire bolt is QPQ salt Bath Nitrided. For the best operating bolt carrier group at a great price that only Faxon Firearms can manage, the Gen 2 BCG from Faxon Firearms is the obvious choice.
