With all the durability and longevity of a Mil-spec carrier but lighter by 2 oz., our stainless steel LMOS carriers are a perfect for any of the wide range of civilian machined receivers on the market. The reduced profile of the these carriers removes material to reduce weight but sacrifices none of the critical operating dimensions save for the forward assist serrations. Even then, these LMOS carriers still function equally well in military-style receivers with the exception of the forward assist, which already sees sparse competition or sporting use. The dust cover feature of such receivers is unaffected.
Beyond their design features, our stainless LMOS carriers come in one of two finish options. The stainless models undergo a vigorous polishing process to bring out the maximum of the steel's natural luster for an eye-catching component that wouldn't look out of place in a jeweler's cabinet. Alternately, our black models undergo a state-of-the-art, multi-vendor process known as QPQ (Quench-Polish-Quench) that results in a durable rock-hard surface with remarkable natural lubricity and sheen.
To meet all needs, each of these models is available as a carrier alone, a complete bolt group, or a home builder bundle in combination with various billet receivers.
