Life Saving Tools, by BCM®
These are stripped 16" 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. 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.

    16in Mid Length Barrel

    This was for my second personal rifle build and after a ton of research I found BCM. Everywhere I looked people had amazing things to say about the company and their products. I am SO glad I went with BCM for my rifle. The parts arrived very quickly and looked great. It went together with my BMC upper perfectly. From the time I have had shooting with the barrel I can tell it is a high quality product that will put rounds on target time after time. I am very pleased with BCM I would recommend this to anyone! I will be shopping here again!

    BFH 16” - Top quality product!

    Accuracy is top notch and consistent. Time will tell when it comes to durability, but based on reviews and suggestions I’m confident the barrel will last longer than I do.

    Great experience!

    Out of all the company's I ordered parts from for my first AR build BCM was by fare the best company I delt with. The website is easy to navigate, product details are very detailed, the product I ordered (all the upper components) are very well made and just as described. The shipping was fast, the order came faster then most of my other orders that I had ordered days earlier.
    Financially I only had one shot at building a quality rifle and with the products I purchased from BCM im very confident my rifle will last longer then me. Im going to upgrade my lower and ive got the parts on my wish list at BCM.

    Great company.

    This isn't a review of the barrel so much as a review for the company. I originally ordered a 14 1/2 that didn't work with my build. They had no issues with exchanging it and taking care of me. The fit and finish of both barrels was great. Thanks for the great service.
