Next to a light weight barrel there is not one single component with the ability to cut weight like this. If a light weight AR10 is your goal this is one of the keys to getting there. A savings of ~8oz over a standard BCG is fantastic but the 1/2 lb drop in reciprocating mass can't be ignored. A side weight benefit is reducing the buffer weight to match. It’s a win/win. As far as the quality is concerned I stripped the bolt and carrier completely while checking headspace and found the product machine work to be fantastic.

I took my completed .308 rifle out to the 300 yard range recently. I was very pleased with the results. This BCG operated perfectly. I used hornady and federal ammo and both brands ejected fine without any issue. All my primers on all my rounds had a very clean and uniform dent right in the center. All in all I am still happy with this purchase and would definitely buy a second one.

Nice quality and machining. The 308 Titanium BCG is only a little heavier than a standard 556 BCG.
My build is still in process. I will update when I get the chance to cycle.

It was unfortunate that the carrier had a nick on one of the bearing surfaces,not happy at all about that.

I got my BCG direct from the distributor a couple week before they became available. I used it to create the lightest AR308 with 18 inch barrel anywhere! Got it down to 4.99 pounds without scope. With a good adjustable gas block and good muzzle brake, my 5 pound AR308 shoots very soft, just a little bit more than my 6.8's.
But with action weights cut in half, the hammering is down from sledge hammer to ball peen. I am getting half inch groups or better, and the titanium BCG is a big part of it.
I have hundreds of rounds shot with this BCG and it still looks like new. Zero issues with the brass, no deformation or swiping.

When this BCG came in the mail I didn't expect the package to be so light. I opened the package and there it was, its Ionbond-Tribobond Coating did feel pretty smooth to the touch and all the millwork was pretty spot on. I am currently in the process of building a 308 rifle. I will put up a second review once I see how well it operates, but as of now the BCG passes the look and feel test, and certainly is lighter than most BCG.
