I've got an S&W VTAC2
, which claims to have a chrome lined bolt carrier and gas key...however, I'm confused. I'll admit I'm very new to AR15s, but won't chrome lined look shiny? If yes, then why does the bolt look like this?
The surface is a matte black. What's up here?
Also, it has a standard carbine buffer and an AR15bolt. Is going with a M16 bolt carrier and a matching H Buffer going to offer an improvement? (avoiding the whole chrome vs parked discussion in here.)
