Recommend me a good stainless/chrome AR carrier. All I need is the carrier. WOA will be supplying the bolt headspaced to the barrel. I like the look of the chrome/stainless BC and want to incorporate a good one into my next project.

Nice. I might have to get one from Midway. It appears Les Baer has newer bolt carrier redesigns which Brownells doesn't stock yet.

I would recommend you also buy a gas key with screws, a firing pin, cam pin and firing pin retainer pin.
Those are NOT always included with "just a carrier".

I'm aware of this. Thanks though.

Whats so special about the WOA bolts? Is the headspace tolerance that much better with their barrels?

Nothing.
They have just been checked with the specific barrel before shipping.

Good to know, Thanks Randall.
