I'm using this carrier with a stock G&P Negative Pressure Nozzle which after some minor fitment issues works without issue.
Due to the nature of aftermarket parts and differences in manufacturing, some tolerances may be tighter or looser than original parts.
In this case, the tolerance on the sides of the wide block section located near the front on top where the nozzle meets the carrier are ~1-2mm too wide and need to be worn* in or filed slightly for smoother cycling and return of the nozzle to the carrier.
As for the performance, this carrier is nearly 1/3 the weight of the stock carrier which increases the system's cyclic rate. This helps increase gas efficiency and save you money while boosting performance. The paint does wear after 300-500 bbs, but after ~1000-1500 bbs there is still no significant metal deformation on areas that see direct metal-on-metal contact such as the lip the bolt catch touches and the bottom of carrier where the roller hammer touches.
Aside from paint wear, this carrier is still going strong and works great in full auto.
