Professional Grade Weaponry, by BCM®
 
 
These are stripped 11.5" Carbine gas, Cold Hammer Forged Barrels with gas ports installed and dimpled for a strong gas block installation.
 
 
Cold Hammer Forged Barrels
This process of manufacturing barrels has been used for European small arms for generations, and it is gaining popularity in the United States because of the increased barrel life and outstanding accuracy of a hammer forged barrel. The BCM BFH series of barrels are made right here in the USA! (Just like all the BCM products.)
 
M4 Feed Ramp Barrel Extension
In developing the USGI M4 carbine as one of the primary weapons for todays infantry, some modifications were performed to the original M16 platform to enhance the reliability of the shorter barreled carbines. With the shorter carbine gas system and the increased gas port pressure, the carbine cycled faster, and at times the cycle rate could be faster than the magazine would feed ammunition. One of the modifications done to increase reliable feeding included enhancing the angle and the length of the feed ramps. This USGI modification was done to both the barrel extension and the upper receiver, creating a longer and steeper feed ramp. These Mil-Spec M4 feed ramps are part of the original CNC manufacturing process. As a result, the factory machined M4 feed ramps on the receiver are hard coat anodized which adds significant strength to the aluminum. This feature is offered on all BCM barrels.
 
 
USGI 1/7 Twist Rate
The USGI 1/7 twist rate of all of the BCM barrels is the preferred twist rate by most professional infantryman. This twist rate has proven very versatile and can effectively run the new heavier 5.56 ammo that is hugely popular with military and private security personal for its superior ballistics.
 
Mil-Spec Barrel Steel (Mil-B-11595E)
BCM barrel steel is Mil-Spec per MIL-B-11595E. This grade (CMV) of steel is a Mil-Spec steel used in the USGI M16 family of rifles; it is stronger and will last longer than the typical barrels offered in the commercial market. The Mil-Spec grade steel gets its additional strength and rigidity from an increase in carbon and/or vanadium in the alloy. This will offer increased barrel life and performance through use in all types of extreme environments and temperatures.
 
Chrome Bore and Chamber
One of the first modifications that were made to the original M16 in the mid 1960s was the addition of the chrome lined bore and chamber. It is now a world wide 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 resist 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.
 
Manganese Phosphate Barrel Finish
Barrels are parkerized with the manganese phosphate finish (Mil-Spec A-A-59267). Military specifications also state that the entire barrel surface is phosphate finished to create a porous surface to absorb oil as to resist against corrosion from the elements. BCM barrels are phosphated before installation of front sights. This is a much more extensive assembly operation, but insures that the entire barrel is finished and protected . . .even under the front sight base.
 
5.56 NATO Chambers
The USGI 5.56 NATO chamber is the best choice for effective deployment, reliability, and compatibility, of higher chamber pressures of military ammo.
 
 
Government Barrel Profiles
Duty rifles are built to be carried - day in and day out. The USGI barrel profiles (often referred to as the Government Profile) enable the operator to carry their weapon for longer periods of time and deploy them faster than the heavier commercial H-Barrel counterparts. The government profile barrel is also compatible with the current M203 mounting systems.
 
HPT / MP Inspected Barrels
Military specifications require that barrels undergo a HPT (High-Pressure Test) load as a part of quality assurance procedures. Commonly referred to as a proof load, the M197 HPT is rated for 70,000 psi. BCM barrels are proof loaded and then MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) to detect any possible flaws in the barrels surface. The barrels are MP inspected with both circular and longitudinal magnetic fields per ASTME1444-01 (current Mil-Spec) to assure a high quality finished product. All BCM barrels are marked HP MP as our proof load marking.

    Very High quality barrel. Gas port seems to be perfectly sized. This 11.5 has a very smooth recoil impulse. Accuracy is great.

    +550 Rounds with Zero Issues

    Posted by Jimmy on Jan 2nd 2020

    I have this barrel paired with a Noveske Switchblock, JP Silent Capured Spring H2, and a Surefire SOCOM556 suppressor. I've gone through three 150 round boxes of 55gr Hornady Frontier along with some Wolf Gold and Norma with no malfunctions. For accuracy, I was able to shoot about a one inch group at fifty yards while sighting in my a red-dot. This barrel hasn't disappointed and is a blast to shoot steel with.

    So far so good.

    Built a new upper for my SBR. Took it out to the range and fired 300 rounds of bulk ammo with zero issues.

    9k rds later, still shoots like new

    Posted by TacticalTimmy on Dec 19th 2019

    I bought this barrel as part of a complete upper about a year ago, to be used on a full auto. I’ve put around 9,000 rounds through it in a very awful way, just mag dump after drum dump after mag dump screwing around kind of shooting. After all that abuse, the bore and throat still look brand new and it still shoots as accurate as it did on day one. So I just bought the barrel a second time to assemble a second upper so I don’t have to wait so long for cool down. It’s an insanely durable barrel, well worth the price given how much life it has in it, probably actually cheaper than a cheap barrel if you take into consideration the round count life spans. I’ll likely buy this again, to lower my cool down times even more.

    Haven't put any rounds through yet but it assembled well and feels like a quality part.

    Only 1k

    Posted by James Isaac on Apr 9th 2019

    I only have around 1k rounds down this barrel so I really can't speak for the quality. No malfunctions. Doesn't seem to be over gassed.
