RFI: Centurion Arms BCG and CHF Barrels

WhiteZombie ·
I remember hearing about this company about 5 or so years ago, I only knew them for their rail systems. I was surfing around, and noticed that they also make barrels and bcgs. I've been toying with the idea of replacing my standard BCM 16 inch carbine barrel and bcg with a CHF middy and starting anew with a replacement bolt. Are these guy worth the money, or should I stick with a known quantity like BCM? I've searched around here, but all the results I'm getting are in regards to Centurion's...

I have both a barrel and a BCG from them, and they've worked fine so far; I've never heard of any issue with either part from Centurion, and I personally would have zero issue recommending them over BCM given all the feedback I've heard about them. I suspect that BCM uses the same supplier as Centurion, which is FN, and the only differences lie in the specs and QA/QC demands, and I find found the 11.5" barrel specs from Centurion more compelling for my planned final AR-15 build, given the...

The guy who owns Centurion is a Navy SEAL. He doesn't sell any shit. All his products are top of the line. I believe his CHF barrels come from FN. Most bolts and bolt carriers you see being sold come from a handful of manufacturers, several of whom supply OEM companies. I'm talking about firms like www.toolcraftinc.com I'm not sure where Monty at Centurion gets his BCGs from, but I'd bet they come from a reputable manufacturer. Outfits like BCM go the extra mile to make sure that what they...

The reason why I'm wanting to swap is, well, I got an itch for a middy that I can use the hell out of. Not that I haven't gotten excellent service out of that carbine gas barrel and bcg from BCM - the barrel has seen around 20k, and same with the bolt, which has surprised the living hell out of me. I fully expected the bolt to have broken by now, either one of the lugs near the extractor to crack or break, or a crack to appear at the cam pin hole. I've only had to change out the gas rings...

I have barrels and BCG's from both. They both shoot great and hold up well. This is one of those rare times where you have 2 good options. I would go with BCM if I wanted something super skinny or off-the-wall (SAM-R). Otherwise, I really like Centurion for a go-to rifle that checks off all the right boxes (lightweight, midlength, accurate).

Had a Carlson's 18.5" barrel. Rear sight screw threads stripped just before deer season, so I couldn't sight in. Currently looking for a replacement. If you're looking for a vent rib barrel (presumably with a bead sight), they should be fine. Up until the sight broke, I was happy with mine.

Carlsons 870 barrels ??

B0308 ·
Hi all, I've got a couple of nicely done tactical Rem 870 12 ga's. One by Novak and a Hans Vang. Both great shooters. However, last week went out with friends to a long round of sporting clays with a borrowed Beretta 12ga semi. It was a shit ton of fun. Before I drop $1.5K on a 12ga O/U, I'd like to go a number of rounds. Thinking of getting a different barrel for the Novak gun. Looking at Brownells, they have some options on Rem barrels, but the moderate priced option is for a vent rib 24"...

Another option is picking up a used 870 bbl from Ebay. With a little time watching Ebay you should be able to pick up a bbl with RemChoke for less than the Carlsons on Midway. Unless you just like/want a short bbl you'll probably be much happier with at least a 28" length for smoothing out the swing on SCs.

Thanks for all the inputs. I've got a local lead on a great Rem barrel we'll see if it pans out. Just to remember how great LF is. Another member, who saw this, who I've never met or in my knowledge communicated with sent me a PM, offering to send me his Rem Choke, vent rib barrel to try for a few weeks! No $, no commitment, just one LF'er helping another. MegaForce!!
