Why use a lightweight bolt carrier?
Low mass buffers and bolt carriers are intended to reduce felt recoil by reducing the reciprocating mass and it does work. A low mass “lightened” buffer tube is just lighter than the standard it does not effect function at all. Low mass parts help with split times in competition since there is less felt recoil.

What is the difference between low-mass and high-mass bolt carriers?
While a lower mass does increase the speed and reduce the weight of the rifle, low-mass bolt carriers are also more susceptible to wear and tear, and as a result are typically not suited to be chosen as a lifetime component for an AR-15 setup. There are a number of coatings available for AR-15 bolt carriers.
What is the best coating for an AR-15 bolt carrier?
