What can I say about Barnes Precision Machine AR’s? Apparently, a lot, since I have written about them here, here, here, here, and here. Oh, and here too. As far as bang for the buck, they are very hard to beat. Most of my personal rifles are BPM, including the one with my ODA number for the serial number. Hell, my wife’s wedding ring is cut from a Barnes 308 barrel. I believe.
Mr. Barnes has been a great supporter of the Special Forces Regiment, and not just stateside. His uppers have done some weird things in some very weird places, though he would never tell you that. I say with certainty, his guns are combat reliable.
BPM builds almost every part in-house and cuts from the finest barrel blanks. Accuracy is the first priority, and I haven’t seen one of his AR’s yet that shoots bigger than ½ MOA. The bolts are nickel boron coated, for a smoothness you have to feel to believe. The handguard is a BPM design, and it is as tough as a coffin nail. Drop in an AR Gold trigger, and you have a rifle that is capable of anything.
All this, at an MSRP that is well below market average. The base model gun retails for $750, while the CQB/MOE model ( my recommendation) retails for $1458. If you haven’t snagged an AR yet, I recommend you put a phone call into Apex, NC. With the way things are going, these are going to be selling fast.
