This high quality Bear Creek Arsenal barrel goes through its entire production life in Sanford, North Carolina at Bear Creek's facilities. Drilling, reaming, rifling, and turning are all accomplished on their CNC machines under ISO-9002 Quality Systems, allowing Bear Creek to put every barrel through a 100% inspection and air gauging process, ensuring every individual barrel is flawless before it leaves their facilities.

This 16", 1:7 twist, heavy contour barrel is machined from 41V50 chromoly vanadium steel, heat treated to RC 28-32 hardness, properly stress relieved with a durable parkerized finish. Chambered for 5.56 NATO, BCA expects that it, along with any of their barrels 16" or longer, will hold a 1.000 MOA group at 100 yards when used with appropriate ammo and shooting techniques.

Gas Port: Carbine length, 0.072"

I have had this barrel for a couple of months now.. and it garbage. No matter what I run through this barrel, it patterns like a shotgun at 100yards. Heavy or light bullets. It just cant hold any type of group. Primary arms in general had my order to me in less then a week. Their shipping and just general over a great company. I did email bear creek about the issue and have not heard back from them yet. If you dont care about group size or building a upper for full auto or just to do mag dumps, then This barrel will just fine.

Looks Good

Shipping was very fast as usual. The finish was not as shiny as it seems in the picture but i actually like that. It feels solid and is very snug in my omni hybrid upper. Cant wait to see how it shoots.
