Professional Grade Weaponry, by BCM®
 
 
These are stripped 14.5" Mid Length 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. The 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 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.

    Satisfactory achieved 🧐

    Just got my first barrel in and man let me tell ya, you can feel the quality just oozing from this thing or maybe it’s the amount of oil coating the barrel. But honestly, this company has blown my hair back with the amount of quality products they produce and but how reasonably priced it is. My only suggestion is maybe offer a pre-assembly option.

    Barrel and mags

    I ordered a barrel and several magazines. They were shipped very quickly and perform as advertised. Would not hesitate to purchase again or recommend.

    Quality Build

    I’m Extremely happy with this new build i also purchased a new Bcm Complete Lower just got it and yesterday I ordered the upper receiver now saving a little more money to get my KMR Alpha Handguard. This Is my first Hammer Forged Barrel and the quality of every part is amazing but it is well known when you purchase anything BCM. I have BCM BCG’s and Charging Handles in all of my Rifkes and of course never a problem. I will have this OG BCM Build Completed in the next few weeks and will be posting everything and the groups it is able to performe.

    Customer review

    The barrel had a good finish and I'm sure it would have shot just fine, but the profile was not to my liking so I returned it. Unfortunately, despite being a long time BCM customer I was raped by a 15% "restocking fee" which I had been unaware of. It's my bad for not reading the fine print, but I will certainly think twice before ordering a BCM product again, lest I get nailed should I have to return it.

    This barrel is excellent!

    I purchased this barrel when I rebuilt my M&P15 to suit my needs better. I coupled this barrel with the BCM 13" KMR-A handguard and I couldn't be happier. Light, strong and accurate! This 14.5" barrel makes all the difference in the world on my rifle. Quality is top notch and the fact that it was dimpled made it easy to attach the BCM gas block to it.

    I wish I had purchased this barrel sooner.
