I will have a couple extra to part with to spit the shipping.

IF it's anything like the BCG in my Noveske, I'm sure it is a good one. When John was around, he was very picky, as to which parts he used in his rifles. I know RCA makes BCG's for Noveske now, but the one in my rifle was not made by them. Its an older rifle with a CMT BCG, according to Noveske. CMT also made BCG's for Colt, DD and Stag. I see on Noveske's site that they have RCA BCG's. I wish i could compare RCA's black nitride finish to the BCG in my rifle, as it is very good quality. Very easy to clean and tougher than the hubs of hell.. I believe Noveske has been using RCA BCG's since about 2015. As for you needing a handguard, there are some out there that would surprise you for the money. The one MM suggested, would be a good one and at a decent deal. The ones I buy work just as good as the infamous Noveske NSR:

But a far cry less expensive. I'd rather spend my money on something else, like reloading components etc...:

I believe Noveske and RCA are affiliate companies now? Good stuff.

I really like the handguards with the partial rails.

Next need is one for my YakutskX39 build. I can't share the details at this time. LOL However, it will likely have a tube type handguard which I can cut to "exact" length. To assure the impending suspense, and to protect the innocent, I can say no more. 😜

I am looking forward to this weekend. I'll be taking over the 'dining' table for parts inventory, conceptualization, and assembly starting Friday morning.

Not their $50.00 ones.
But it appears their Premium BCG's are made by toolcraft.


I haven't seen any of PSA's cheap PTAC line for a good while. I think they've discontinued it.

I got these about 2 or 2.5 years ago. They look great. I don’t remember anything about the PTAC stuff. I thought that was their cheaper rifle line. Not sure how they would cheap out on the bcg though. The phosphate bolts were the cheap ones I thought? I’ll have to go take a look and see what the bolts say on them later.

Sounds like a lot of fun. I was hoping to get to shoot my new 6x45 this weekend, but I don't know if I'll have the die set by tomorrow. USPS is being super slow!!!! I was supposed to have it by the 23rd..

Waiting on the thread protector too. Has an unusual thread pitch (9/16x24). That was supposed to be here yesterday..

They're always "out of stock". Just order. You'll get one. Quickly.

So that's what you meant when you said you ordered and got shipping notification from RCA.
