Bear Creek Arsenal 16" 5.56 NATO M4 Contour 1:8 Carbine 416R Barrel - Stainless
This 16", 1:8 rifled, M4 contour barrel is machined from 416R stainless teel, heat treated to RC 28-32 hardness, and properly stress relieved. Chambered for 5.56 NATO, BCA expects that it, along with any of their barrels 16" or longer, will hold a 1 MOA group at 100 yards when used with appropriate ammo and shooting techniques.

I purchased item # B556CM41618-SS on order # SO-1171930 on 12-26-17. I finally finished the gun this month with one of your micro red dots on it. It was shooting 8" groups at 50YRDS. I took the red dot off and installed Magpul iron sights. Still no better. I removed the flash hider and shot from a SLED at 50YRDS with 4 different kinds of ammo. It is still not acceptable. Alex from Primary was great in that he contacted B/C on my behalf and got a return issued back to B/C. Jump foreward 2 weeks:
<br>Received the replacement barrel on tracking # 1ZRE88790363307879 invoice # 17879 in 2 pieces. 1 broken in half tube and 1 loose barrel. I have not shot it or even installed it and I don't think I will. I learned my lesson and this will not happen again. Primary Arms 5 stars,B/C product 0 stars
Bad barrel extension
by Bradley -
Barrel extension is not completely finished and will not headspace. Very dangerous and Primary Arms won’t return it. Have to go through Bear Creek which is a pain. Spend the extra $50-100 and get a reliable barrel from a company with a quality customer service department since PA wont do anything.
High Quality Barrel
by J L -
Professionally machined, perfect fit, gas port must be drilled to correct dimension as everything cycled smoothly. 1/8 twist is perfect. This is a high quality barrel at a very good price!
Best Entry Level Barrels on the Market!!!
Bear Creek barrels can not be beat for the price, Ive used around 50-60 of them now and they are always accurate and well machined. If you're looking for a good econo BUILD barrel look no further.
