Bolt Carrier Group Question

Recommended Posts

Now I have the .22 conversion kit, the .223 bolt carrier group spends more time out of the rifle than in it. I know they're pretty tough but does anyone know if there is a protective container sold by anyone to put one in?

Right now it is in a zip lock bag in the gun cabinette, but I want to take it with me to the range so I can shoot some of the .22 and some .223.

I never seen anything but Il bet a bit of pvc pipe and a threaded cap on one end might be sufficient.  FWIW mine was kept in a magazine pocket in my rifle case for nearly 20 years without protection or damage

I would think the tool steel of the bolt and the carrier would be tougher than anything the BCG was likely to encounter.  My concern would be for the gas key maybe getting bent? 

A section of plastic pipe and end caps sounds good.  Maybe a plastic box from the supermarket where the food storage items are??  With a little foam of some kind or bubble wrap inside the box around the BCG-  mostly to keep it from rattling?

I bought a piece of 1" pipe insulation and put it in that. I should protect short of me running over my range bag with my truck. The added plus to using the foal insulation is it still fits in the pocket of my range bag, where as a piece of PVC wouldn't.
