Great Bolt Carrier Group and BarrelReview by Eddie
I normally get my barrels from Daniel Defense which have been great, but comparing quality and price I found Ballistic Advantage as a competitive alternative. I purchased a barrel and this bolt carrier group for my AR15 build and have been VERY pleased with the quality and price. (Posted on 2/21/2018)
Pixie DustReview by keith
I wanted to drop you a line to tell you guys how amazingly wonderful these products are! I just finished a 5.56 pistol build on a spikes Crusader lower. Once the barrel with pinned gas block and Bolt carrier group was unpacked I knew I was dealing with an item the company took pride in. This is my life or liberty weapon and I needed it to perform, not so much cosmetic but it NEEDED to perform for me. My life and the lives of those I love depended on this. I have used Daniel Defense products and many others that made claims to be the do all be all of the firearms market, only to be left with the "Meh" feeling. Once I got beyond the quality feel and finish of the parts and got it assembled I knew headspace was not an issue at all. There was no need to check it, it just was right. The parts mated together like a foot sliding into a tube sock. I loaded a mag and stepped on the range and it was like the stars aligned! Pixie dust was sprinkled! Your barrel and bolt mated to the PWS CQB Compensator were like falling in love the first time. I would have paid twice as much as I did for these items. It performed way beyond what I had expected! It almost made me feel like I could be arrested for lewd behavior. I told a buddy, "Kelly you have got to come shoot this thing!" It hits at 1/4" group shot after shot. Most short barrels you would pay three times this much for won't ever perform like that. After combat tours galore this was the weapon system I have been looking for for years. The next build will be a 300 BLK upper for this lower. I am never the type of gun guy that raves over one company or another. I am an equal opportunity pessimist until I find what works. I am not the "Tacticool gun guy." I am a realist and an AR purist. I am now a Ballistic Advantage fan boy. The pinning of the lo-pro gas block ya'll did for me was exceptionally done! I cannot wait to start building this BA 300 upper if you guys make it I will buy it! Hell, I'll even start wearing Ballistic Advantage swag and I am so not a swag guy. But anyone who asks I will tell them to "go BA or go home" Daniel Defense who? LWRC what? Sorry bro, can't hear ya' I'm spending time with a real weapon!
Hopefully waiting for you guys to build a compensator like the PWS CQB. It is absolutely necessary for a short barrel Can never figure out why guys build short barrels only to defy its purpose and have a concussion machine. Build it right Go Ballistic Advantage!

Faithful Ballistic Advantage Shooter and builder for life.
