The Sharps Xtreme Performance Bolt (XPB) Carrier Group Complete is comprised of our patented Relia-Bolt™ and our Balanced Bolt Carrier. Both are machined out of S7 tool steel. The XPB undergoes a 24-hour thermal cycle proprietary heat treatment and is finished with NiB-X (Nickel Boron) Coating.
The XPB carrier displays the SRC logo machine cut and is visible when the ejection port door is open. The XPB fits standard AR-15/M16/M4 rifles chambered in .223/5.56, Sharps 25-45, and 300 Blackout calibers. Sharps will not guarantee proper function with the use of steel cases, or foreign ammunition.

Limited Lifetime Warranty
If any SRC Balanced Bolt Carrier or Relia-Bolt™ is found to have manufacturer defects, SRC will repair or replace it at no charge. Manufacturer defects include broken lugs, out of spec parts or defective parts. Although our BCG is Mil-Spec, there are so many variables, sometimes a little troubleshooting, or fine tuning of parts may be required for proper functionality. Before a part is replaced or refunded, SRC reserves the right to inspect and test part(s) in question to determine if it is defective.
Order cancellations may incur a 15% restocking fee. Please see return section
