In January when I receiver my 450 bushmaster upper I replaced the carrier with easier to clean ice arms nib carrier well two months & 80 rds through the gun I noticed that nib plating was not only was wearing off but chipping off . I contacted Colin at ice he sounded quite concerned that the plating was coming off i sent him pics we texted back and forth for a hour he told me I would get a replacement carrier & ra for the bad one well that was a month ago and so far nothing doesn't answer calls or text anymore . This is just a FYI for people I'm not really into bashing manufacturers I know things happens but the no more contact sucks if you what more bad reviews of ice arms there's a lot on ar15.com. Some of the pics are hard to see but the chipping is easy to see. After four builds this is my first bad part I guess that's not bad
