The Adams Arms VDI LifeCoat Bolt Carrier is designed to extend the lifespan and durability of the direct impingement system. Unlike most other carriers, the LifeCoat VDI features an integral gas carrier key machined directly into the carrier itself. No more needing to worry if the screws are staked properly or even shearing off as this method completely negates the need for screws of any kind. Because of this design, it also allows for the gas flow path to be improved reducing the chance of obstructions or rough surfaces where carbon can build up. Built to Mil-Spec dimensions, this AR-15 bolt carrier is compatible with a wide range of parts and upper receivers.

The Adams Arms LifeCoat VDI Carrier features a full auto rated M16 profile and their proprietary LifeCoat two-part finish that offers an extremely smooth surface with better corrosion resistance, durability, and lubricity than other finishes. The first layer on they apply to the carrier is Nickel Boron for its lubricity and then a second layer similar to physical vapor deposition is applied to add the wear resistance. This 8620 carrier, however, does not include a bolt, cam pin, firing pin, or retaining pin.
