Professional Grade Weaponry, by BCM®
These are stripped 11.5" Carbine gas, Forged Barrels with gas ports installed and dimpled for a strong gas block installation.
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.
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.

    Pretty Typical

    Posted by JG on Oct 27th 2017

    One could argue that BCM is boring. Boring in a way that their website is well laid out. Boring that their product descriptions and pictures are true and accurate. Boring that they have product on hand to fulfill orders quickly. Boring that they do all of this day in, day out, error free.

    Is shopping with BCM boring? You bet it is. I'll take it every time!

    Well done guys! As usual! As you were!

    BCM Standard 11.5" Carbine (ENHANCED LIGHT WEIGHT)

    Posted by David Duffy on May 4th 2016

    This is my 4th BCM barrel and unfortunately the least accurate to date. On a very positive note it appears to have been ported better as the function is one hundred percent better than previous barrels. The good with the bad I guess. You spoiled me with the first 11.5" barrel that I purchased from you.

    A Company You Can Count On!

    Posted by David Young on Apr 26th 2016

    I am now doing my second rifle build with basically all Bravo Company components. My first experience building with them over a year and a half ago was so enjoyable I wanted to use them again. I take a lot of rifle courses where your parts and gear is always tested. I ordered a 16in enhanced light weight barrel, buffer tube kit, lower parts kit, and KMR from them last time. I beat the living piss out of my rifle at these courses and nothing broke or failed. Bravo Company is a "Go to War" brand that can with stand any punishment you give them. I HIGHLY recommend them to anyone who is looking for reliable parts that can withstand any beating you give them.

    11.5 BCM Barrel

    Posted by Chris Ward on Dec 11th 2015

    Have yet to shoot it to attest for its accuracy, but the barrel shipped to me in 2 days. Very fast, and much appreciated. It was all packaged nicely and came with a protective plastic sleeve. Upon closer inspection, the machining, and finish seem to be perfect. A+ BCM
