Approximate Weight: 3lbs 3oz.
Great fit and finish. I haven't gotten it installed yet but can't wait.
I haven't shot this barrel with an optic yet, but after a break-in I shot a 2-3inch group with iron sights at 203 yards with my handloads. I have no doubt this will shoot sub moa once I get an optic for it like my other one in stainless steel. Perfectly gassed and running it with a BCM intermediate buffer tube, 5.3oz Vltor A5 buffer and a JP tuned and polished rifle length spring, with a BCM gas block and BCG. I really like the ion bond finish, as well. The bore is beautiful on this thing.
Barrel fit onto my upper just right, no complications. Have only taken the rifle with that barrel to the range twice but it has shot absolutely great on both occasions.
Nice and heavy but light enough to hunt with, accurate, and the 1/8 makes it extremely versitile as far as bullet weight. Shoots quarters at 200 yards even with cheap ammo
I felt obligated to buy from these guys coming from 1/8 B Co. in 2004. But after buying from these guys, I can say their stuff is of excellent quality, and not just show. Service was expedited as well. Couldn't ask for anything else.
Mounted to a BCM upper with BCM gas block and tube, Lantac NiB BCG, original KMR15 handguard, Anderson lower, ALG LPK with ACT trigger, A2 stock, LaRue bipod, 6X SWFA scope in LaRue mount. So far it's flawless. I'm a convinced BCM user (this is at least my 5th barrel/upper).
I'm not quite getting the groups I want yet, but I'm breaking it in with cheap 77gr. ammo so I'll chalk it up to that for now. I'll see how it does with premium 77gr. soon.
It really doesn't get any better than this in my opinion. I bough this barrel for my SPR/SAM-R rifle hybrid. I had heard great things about BCM but I had to shoot it to believe it. I just got back from the range and shot a .52 inch 5-shot group with this barrel. It was AWESOME. My only regret is that I don't have a BCM hat. I would wear it with pride because I am so satisfied with this build. Thanks BCM! You guys kick, well - you know.
