Attention AR Fans - Here's a game changer from II2 Defense.
by Ian-Bradley Johnson
As seen in the May issue of Marsh & Bayou Magazine.
We live in an age where around every corner is a new product that will make whatever existing product you have better. I’ll be honest in saying that I’m very skeptical of new products in the gun industry. Most of the new stuff I see is either a new iteration of an existing product or doesn’t really give a new advantage to something already proven. What gets me really excited are game changers. Game changers to me are products that really go against everything we thought we knew before. Let me introduce you to the latest game changer I found, EAC coated bolt carrier groups from a company out of Mandeville Louisiana known as IIA Defense.
I don’t know about you all but I take good care of my equipment. I frequently hunt hard with traditional walnut stocked and blued finish rifles in harsh conditions, but I take care of them. Most of my guns are in very good condition but I use them as they should be. As for my self-defense firearms such as my AR-15, I still take care of it but it gets a lot of wear and tear from constant use training with it. Enter the IIA EAC coated bolt.
IIA Defense claims that this bolt requires no lubrication. That’s right you heard me correctly, no lubrication. I’ve always been the type of person to be sold on something after seeing it in person so when Jeff and Marcos from IIA defense handed me a bolt I went to work testing it. The following weekend after getting the bolt I called five friends and instructed them to bring the dirtiest 5.56 ammo they had and lots of mags as we were going to put this bolt to the test. For the test I took my Daniel Defense DDM4 variant rifle and wiped it clean of any fouling, grease, or lubricant for a completely dry rifle. Now we didn’t put the gun through any environmental test such as sand, water, and mud but boy did that bolt get hot! With over six hundred rounds loaded in magazines already we started an assembly line. One shooter would do a mag dump, hand the rifle to the next shooter and so on. We got the gun so hot that the metal rear sight on the back of the receiver was too hot to touch and forget about touching the metal hand guard because it was steaming. A little over six hundred rounds were fired that day and the only failure that came up that day was due to ammunition, one guy brought some really old surplus ammo and one round in particular had some green looking grease stuck to the whole brass case and it caused it to get stuck in the magazine. This failure had everything to do with the ammunition and nothing to do with the bolt. After we were done shooting Jeff Blackman cracked open my rifle and handed me the bolt carrier group. I wouldn’t have believed it if I wasn’t there, the bolt was cool enough to touch and more so it was able to be wiped clean with a paper towel.
So what is an EAC coating? EAC is a proprietary coating developed to reduce friction and wear on metal surfaces. Unlike many coatings on the market this isn’t a hard coat. The coating is bonded to the metal. With metal heats up it flexes, most hard coats and traditional coatings have a point at with it my chip under flex. EAC flexes with the metal under heat. In addition to this it has properties which reduce friction and reduce carbon fouling build up. Like I mentioned earlier, after the first test the bolt was able to be cleaned with a paper towel.
The testing has gone even further in these past months. The bolt carrier group from the original test now has in excess of 3500 rounds down the barrel and has only been cleaned twice which entailed a simple wiping down with a paper towel. In addition to my testing there was another shooter who ran a bolt carrier group of theirs through over 1000 rounds suppressed on full auto. After working in a gun shop for going on six years I cannot stand cleaning guns, the ease of cleaning these bolts is much appreciated.
I can’t recommend the IIA Defense EAC bolt carrier group enough. I am a huge proponent in carrying things to protect myself with that are proven and have been tested. It is with utmost confidence that I can truly say I trust this bolt in my fighting rifle. So if you are looking to buy something to enhance your defensive rifle, look no further. Remember, be safe and have fun at the range.
