Every BCM® barrel uses the same Independently Certified Mil-Spec 11595E Barrel Steel (CMV) used in the USGI M16 family of rifles. Built to perform in extreme environments, BCM® barrels are stronger and more durable than typical commercial barrels, thanks to high concentrations of carbon and/or vanadium in the alloy.
NOTE: Firearms purchased on this website must be picked up in person (GA residents only) or shipped to a Federal Firearms License (FFL) holder in your state of residence. You must provide us with a copy of the FFL prior to shipment. Transfer fees charged by the receiving FFL are your responsibility. If you are not eligible to own a firearm, return shipping and other charges will be deducted from your refund.
BCM® barrels also undergo a M197 HPT (High-Pressure Test), commonly referred to as a proof load, rating each barrel for 70,000 psi. This hardening is followed by a MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspection) to detect any possible flaws in the barrels surface, with both circular and longitudinal magnetic fields per ASTME1444-01 in the current Military-Specification.
Mid-length systems deliver the same compact size of a carbine, with less overpressure and recoil for a smoother running platform with more agile weapon control. The mid-length system also allows for a longer hand guard and by extension, a longer iron sight radius for improved accuracy when engaging with iron sights.
A chrome lined bore and chamber is now a worldwide standard in the industry for a battle rifle. The chrome bore and chamber is harder than the barrel steel and on the USGI M16/M4 rifles will aid in chambering, extraction, and reliability. It increases velocity, and also resists against fouling and corrosion from extended use in the field. This gives the end user a longer barrel life with less required time in maintenance and cleaning.
As with all BCM rifle products and accessories, 100% Made in the USA.
