Looking at trading a gun with another member.... the barrel is marked BCMP 5.56 Nato 1/9...
Who makes the barrel.... Bushmaster?

Thanks in advance,

Blair

I have 6 Bushmasters of all different flavors, and none are marked like that.... nor have I ever seen a "BCMP" marked barrel. Every chrome lined Bushmaster I have seen is marked:

"B MP 5.56 NATO 1:x" where "x" is the twist rate of the barrel.....

"CMP" is typicall Colt.... I wonder what BCMP is? Got pics?

FALARAK is right, I found my glasses and looked again.

B MP

Sorry for the confusion.

yep, only B MP for Bushmaster. C MP would've been Colt, but never seen a mix of B C MP. some over zealous copycat?

Gentlemen:

Thanks for the replies. When I did a google search it pulled up the AR oracle and both the B_MP (bushie) and C_MP (colt) barrels were listed.

Here is a picture of the one I am looking at .... Link for BCMP barrel

Thank you for the help. I am worried on doing a trade with a submarket or shopped together gun..

that looks more like P C M P, the pic is too blurry. But eithe way I have no idea what that is. All I can say is that I'm pretty sure it's not a Colt. On the Colt the "MP" should be integrated, rather than being separate letters.

maybe it's a CMP (as in Civilian Marksmanship Program) barrel made by Bushy? Just a wild guess

Most likely not a Bushy CMP barrel since it's a 1/9 and it's got a FS. I think all their CMP/DCM barrels are 1/8 & a target crown.

Thanks for the replies.

I'd guess that's a bushy, just because of the B. I'd give them a call and see if they ever marked their barrels in such a way.....

Interesting.

Font on those letters look just like Colt barrels have but it is marked differently...

I thought the same. Bushy stampings are usually small letters, Colt are the large ones like the BCMP barrel pictured above.

I seem to remember a barrel thread that talked about this. As i recall it was a Colt barrel and the "B" denoted a chrome Bore as well as chamber. Maybe I am mixing memories though...
