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 the DLC (Diamond Like Carbon) 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. Weight: 11.2 oz.
