Hey guy,s , I just ordered a G3 HK tungsten filled carrier/bolt head from RTG. Say,s its very good condition and HK german. Just slightly heavier incase your gonna go rock n roll. Will this work GOOD in a G3K semi build?? Hope its all HK marked, they were out of HK marked FA carriers. This is late model SEMI auto. $199. Will it be bad or just as good and slightly better? I can cancel yet. Thanks guy,s

Tungsten is really for full auto. Bolt bounce won't mean much in semi. Unless it's excessive. And I doubt it would ever be.

Will it run FINE,without NEGATIVE results. Is it OK to use it? So it won,t make a shorter barreled rifle run that much smoother?#18 locking piece,lets not forget.

Seems like a waste of $200 for a semi-auto gun. Doubt you will feel any difference.
Somewhere on HKPro is a string saying that ALL the carbide plugs were aftermarket/armorer mods and NOT H&K built.
NOT stating that as fact, just that I read it on here somewhere as well as advice not to waste money for semi gun.
I saved $200 and haven't looked back.
Let everyone know how it goes if you do get it, and also how it was marked, Please!

It will run fine. If you have both carriers and run them side by side you wouldn't notice a difference.

Thanks bro,I went with an HK fa carrier for the G3k build instead of the heavy tungsten ordeal. I have a mint HK 74' bolt head for it.

The tungsten carriers only make a difference if the gun is full auto. Doesn't do a thing for a semi.
