Ratings & Reviews
I don't know what is up with Sean's barrels, but i own and shoot the hell out of my 4 BCM barrels and have never had an issue with any of them. They are very accurate and use an evenly applied parkerizing on the exterior of their barrels. BCM makes some of the finest quality barrels on the market today, you might find a fancier or better looking one, but when it comes to accuracy and reliability, BCM is near the top of the pack!
Good barrel, bad coating!

Barrel is really good and impressed with the accuracy and weight. However, after taking it out the 1st time the finish of the barrel bubbled. Very shocked as it happened after the second magazine ran through it and did not do full mag dumps. Perhaps this barrels coating wasn't applied great on this one, but for it being BCM I expected more, especially since I haven't had this issues with my other 2 BCM barrels. I may contact BCM about it, if the problem gets worse.
