The HM Defense HMB Bolt Carrier Group – Black Nitride corrects a natural weak point in existing Mil-Spec M16, AR-10 & AR-15 bolts, where the cam pin hole passes through the bolt.
Under extensive use, including the stress of combat, a standard Mil-Spec bolt can fail at the cam pin hole location. The HMB Bolt by HM Defense eliminates the pass-through cam pin hole & replaces it with a cam pin socket and tapered cam pin design.
This new patent-pending design eliminates the natural weak point of Mil-Spec bolts by significantly increasing the amount of metal (& strength) at the cam pin location.
The result – No more broken bolts!
Additionally, the HMB Bolt reduces contact between cam pin & firing pin, enabling smoother operation of firing pin, bolt lugs & aft gas rings. The new cam pin socket also retains lubrication for extended operations.
