AT3 Black Nitride Bolt Carrier Group with Slick Side Billet Upper – 8 Colors to Choose From
Get a head start on your build with the AT3 Black Nitride Bolt Carrier Group, plus the AT3 Slick Side Upper. These two components are already discounted when you buy this kit, including the full range of Cerakote finishes that we offer for the receivers. From here, you can build out your ideal upper receiver group, with a handguard, charging handle, and more.
Be sure to look out for a barrel as well, whether chambered in 5.56 or .223, .300 Blackout, or .350 Legend. These three calibers share the same 5.56 bolt face, which means the AT3 BCG can be used for a variety of builds. Plus, with the upper receiver, you get a sleek, unique look, in whatever color works best for your AR rifle.
AT3 Tactical Black Nitride Bolt Carrier Group – 5.56, .300 Blackout, and .350 Legend Compatible
Getting a high quality bolt carrier group (BCG) that runs well in your rifle is absolutely critical. AT3 offers this BCG with a black nitride finish, which reduces friction and increases surface hardness for a lifetime of use. The carrier itself features a full mass M16 cut for the best possible reliability in your AR-15 build.
BCG Made in the USA
The bolt itself features shot-peened 9310 steel construction, which is Magnetic Particle Inspected (MPI) to ensure there are no hidden cracks or stress points. The bolt also has a chrome-plated firing pin, and a mil-spec o-ring extractor already installed to ensure reliable extraction of spent brass.
AT3 sources these nitride BCGs from one of the largest suppliers of bolts and carriers in the firearms industry. When you buy a BCG from us, you’re getting a high-quality product that’s made in the USA, that’s trusted by dozens of brands and manufacturers, and we back every one with our AT3 lifetime warranty.

Haven't shot it yet but it seems fine. Wish everyone would adopt this manner of holding in the dust cover door - it's great. Matched pretty close to an Aero G2 lower I had already, but not perfectly - most noticeable on the left side rectangular raise along the magwell, the sides don't quite align. But, I'm a function before form guy and this seems well made. Would absolutely buiy again.
