They use the same bolt carrier correct?
Just a different bolt, barrel and mags?

Like you said same carrier different bolt and barrel. Same mag just a different follower. The flash hider is also different.

I actually knew about the mag, just poorly worded.
Was not sure about the carrier.

Thanks,.........:thumbsup:

they DO NOT use the same magazine >>

the mag body is different inside , more than just the follower....PRI or the newest C mags have been 100% for me in teh 25 round variety

Like he said about the mags - different body and follower. PRI has had a significant defect rate (somewhere around 10-15%) with their 25 round mags for the last year in a half at least. If you like dealing with warranty support and paying top dollar go with them. If not, go with C-Products. If you need something more sturdy go with Barrett (I have dropped two different ones fully loaded on the feed lips with barely a scuff to show for it.)...

You might play around with magazines.

I can get P-mags to feed 6.8 in MY magazines. I know some other people have had issues. I can get the 20 rounders to feed without any issues as well.

H&K mags with magpul followers seem to work so far. Will post after I have a few more rounds through them.

The C-Products mags have been flawless for me as well as the Barrett's actually I prefer the C-Products being that there shorter and a hell of alot cheaper, their 5 rdrs are great also

My best 6.8 mags are the C products that I installed the ranger plates on those stainless mag bodies are very tough.. once I polisehed all the edges on the edges on the followers they are super slick....
