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).

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"...

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.

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!!

Glock 46 with Rotating Locking Barrel

3ACR_Scout ·
This German publication, DWJ, (which I can't read and haven't had the chance to look at with Google Translate) contains photos of what appears to be a new 9mm Glock model, the G46, which features a rotating, locking barrel. This file is posted to an AR15.com user's Google drive, so I'm not sure how long it will be available. The G46 is on page 7 of this PDF file: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B9hAva_yxlzPZnh0QXNCdk5rckk/view Overall, the pistol appears to be Gen 5-ish, but with a longer...

Mark, someone referenced the Beretta PX4's rotating barrel on the other forum also, so I'm guessing you're correct. Another post mentioned that the G46 is being evaluated by Germany's GSG9, but I'm not sure if that was lifted out of the article or just RUMINT. I'll try to look over the article and translate some of it when I get to my home computer. Hopefully a German-speaking member will beat me to it... Dave

No, Mojo you are correct. The PX4 Storm (and the 8000 before it) has a similar rotating lugged barrel. Pretty sure the 1912 Steyr is this way as well. From what little I understand of the article, the Glock 46 exists to be a viable candidate for German Police pistol trials/selection. I'm curious to see how this one plays out in the long run

Isn't that rotating barrel lockup similar to what Betetta uses in the PX4 Storm line? If not , ignore this as I've had a long travel day and been on my feet most of the time I wasn't in a vehicle. I'm toast.

So back, but to late to edit, the SIG Sauer 220 or P6 (Polizeipistole 6) has only a 8 shot stack magazine, so with one round chambered and 2 extra magazines 25 shot total for the officer.

shoobe01 posted: Rotating should seem to be able to be intrinsically safe for decocking. I do worry (a bit) about the ergonomics of twisting a little thing on the back of the slide. Safely. In the dark. After a UOF incident when adrenaline is up. Etc. Why would you be decocking the gun (only required for disassembly as far as I understand) under that scenario? Wouldnt you just reholster it like any other, standard Glock? Rick

Rotating a striker assembly again reminds me of P7. I know that removed it but still. Wish G talked about their design process a bit more. Rotating should seem to be able to be intrinsically safe for decocking. I do worry (a bit) about the ergonomics of twisting a little thing on the back of the slide. Safely. In the dark.

Interesting... Can't figure out what replaces the original slide stop, what is operating the firing pin safety and what the second plunger at the back of the slide is. Is a rotating barrel more accurate than the Browning tilt design? I gotta believe feeding alternatives to ball ammo may be an issue.

kaltesherz posted: The decocking feature is only for disassembly, not like decocking a DA/SA pistol. Ah... That helps a lot. I thought (since it's German and I only get so much of this) it was a "we need the ability to decock" generally requirement. Presumably this just eliminates all those worried about pulling the trigger to strip, though it seemed like a bonus safety check step to me.

From the front it almost looks like a HK P7, the bore axis is noticeably lower than a G19. The Arsenal Strike One, which was is touted for it's low bore axis, is also a rotating barrel. Of course it's also known for it's reliability issues...

Some quick technical details from the article: Page 70 in the DWJ magazine = Page 7 of the linked file The G46 will be decocked by twisting the back plate (p. 70 figure 1 no. 1) Trigger and triple safety feature stay the same as „standard Glocks“ Metal surfaces are nonglare DLC (diamond like carbon) coated to make them extra smooth.

Garrett Thomas posted: Is a rotating barrel more accurate than the Browning tilt design? I gotta believe feeding alternatives to ball ammo may be an issue. These days, with the browning lock mature as hell, I am not sure there's any difference in things like accuracy. It could be made with a lower boreline, which is always better, and appears to be. Only other distinct advantage I recall for rotating barrels is that primary extraction involves twisting so you get a more effective breakaway...
