So first of all let me say that customer service was outstanding. My bolt came in flawless and smooth as all get out. After about 100 rounds I noticed some of the coating coming off at high impact points at the face of the carrier and corners of the lugs. Now keep in mind any coating will do this so don’t freak out! The bolt was easily cleaned and a little solvent was needed to break down the solidified carbon on the back of the bolt, however, it came off much easier and cleaner than a standard or even nickle bolt carrier would have. Love the product amazing coating and top quality bcg!!! Joseph Craig on 19th Feb 2019
This is the 3rd bolt carrier I have purchased and it impresses me just as much as the other two. Great craftsmanship and the coatings are perfect. Highly recommend. Brent on 15th Feb 2019
Great looking BCG honestly one of the best carrier's ive ever owned. Quality is top tier. Robert on 31st Jan 2019
I ordered the Mystic Bronze BCG, and am very impressed as are my shooting buddies. I just finished a .300 BLK Pistol build and this thing ran like butter! Supper slick and easy to clean off by wiping with a rag to take off any carbon. Absolutely love it, plus the looks of admiration and envy from my buddies does not hurt either. Looks and runs great. I will definitely buy another one from Cryptic on another build, another color/coating just to have a little variety. Jaime S. on 23rd Jan 2019
This my second Cryptic Coatings BCG and as with my first Cryptic Coatings BCG I'm extremely pleased with its quality, smooth operation, and ease of cleaning (micro-fiber cloth is usually all it takes - and they supply the micro-fiber cloth). Cryptic Coatings is first class and a by far have the best product out there. Bob C on 22nd Jan 2019
This BCG is by far the most superior setup compared to anything else on the market. Zero issues with durability or reliability at with 2k+ rounds on it. Cleans up with a microfiber towel for the most part, might need a brush around the rings for the stubborn build up. Will continue to upgrade all of my setups to include Cryptic Coatings BCG's.

Here's the bottom line period. I love to build and shoot AR platform rifles. I don't like to clean them though. So, I buy the nitrided carriers and run them until they fail before cleaning them. I have at least 3 right now on 3 different rifles. Haven't cleaned one of my AR's for probably 2 years. Won't even consider buying a different carrier. Eric. on 16th Dec 2018
Have been buying Coated BCGs from Cryptic for years...have them in all my guns in Various Coatings...Wipe clean every time! Highly Recommend! R. Jones on 29th Nov 2018
IMO one of the best BCG’s available. This is my third purchase and I will only run this in my builds. Not only is the coating smooth and slick but hands down the easiest piece of my gun to clean after a day at the range!! Buy one, you won’t regret or be disappointed. Charles Burnham on 29th Nov 2018
First, a bit about my background. I am a rifle armorer for a PD of 285 officers. A little over a year ago, an officer brought in his patrol rifle for inspection, a Daniel Defense sporting a Cryptic BCG. Of course I was impressed with the DD rifle, but what really caught my attention was the shiny and slick Cryptic BCG. I see a lot of rifles and BCG's. But this one was the slickest and smoothest I have ever seen. Even w/no or very little lube. Ha! I said "lube". I vowed to save my pennies and one day purchase a Cryptic BCG. I signed up on the Cryptic website and waited for an discount code email. And waited. And waited. And waited. Sadly, it never came. I finally lost it and asked about a LE discount. And that is the story of how the Stork delivered my first Cryptic BCG. She was Mystic Black. Not a flaw on her body. I lightly touched and caressed every part of her as I gazed upon her shiny skin. Wait, what was I talking about? Then I inserted her...into my rifle, you perv! Talk about a smooth action. I really don't see how a BCG could be any smoother. My other rifles quickly became jealous. So in the interest of a ménage à trois, I purchased a second in Mystic Blue. My poor Nickel Boron (from another company) now keeps getting pushed back in my rifle collection. I sorta feel sorry for her. So, I am a satisfied Cryptic customer. I am a return customer. I recommend them to anyone who has the extra coin to cough up for what is probably the finest BCG out there. Still reading? Yes, they work flawlessly. They are easy to clean. So go ahead. Pull the trigger. No regrets here. And as always, Rock On! Unknown on 28th Nov 2018
