I understand one can pay to get a BCG ion bonded. Do the benefits exceed the cost? As well, does anyone have a vendor in mind who can do this?

I have a couple of BCGs Ion Bonded.
The carbon just wipes off, amazing stuff.

Get it done at IonBond.
IM me your e-mail address and I'll forward the docs they sent me.

They also offer a 10% military discount.

I don't really see the benefit of this.

Bolt carriers don't wear out anyway, and if you're lubing it properly then the carbon isn't a problem to remove.

does ion bond offer any extra corrosion resistance?

There isn't a better finish for your firearm than IonBond. Added corrosion resistance, lubricity, much less wear, thin.

Sights, sears, disconnectors, hammers, etc will all benifit from IonBond.

Lubricity is a key point for a BCG.

Ion Bond is the best way to permanently blacken a stainless steel barrel.

Both good reasons IMO to get parts coated.

Over-lubing is?

Same as PVD coatings?

Edited post for clarity ;)

Maybe it makes sense for some other parts, but IMO it's a waste of money on a BCG. All a BCG needs is lube. But it's your money to waste, don't let me stop you.

I could see doing it to a bolt... But why spend the extra money on the carrier?

I agree. Save your money. Buy more ammo. Go on with life.
