I know youposted this a while back... I am looking for the same bolt carrier CAD files in ANY format. Did you have any luck on finding a place to download them from? Thanx!

Hi all

Thanks for the link newyorkdesigns. Have you ever made this bolt using this file??? One of the reviews claim it is missing two rings. I am very new to this hobby and was curious if it is an accurate file or not.

 Thanks have a good day

Don't ever download a free CAD file and expect every dimension to be 100% correct. Try it out, if you are new to the hobby I wouldn't suggest machining bolt carriers. Stick with a few muzzle breaks or flash hiders and work your skills up from there.

 ;) Thank you!!!! Now I just need to find the tolerance sheet (tough to find anywhere for Bolt/carrier but important) and warm up the old HAAS...LOL

Thanks Newyorkdesigns for the information. I was thinking of using the wax or Delrin just to see if I could get a solid upper and lower made, that was accurate and tight fitting. Then I would try one out of 7071 T6 maybe.
