By the time you are reading this, the stork will have delivered the newest baby to the Bear Creek Arsenal family:  the 8.6 Blackout. The proud parent is the 6.5 Creedmoor. This amazing caliber defies conventional logic by using a 1:3 twist in a 10.5” barrel to produce a legitimate three-hundred-yard SUBSONIC round. It will also be available in a rifle-length barrel for the traditionalist. The platform is AR10. It accommodates 160 – 225 gr. bullets in supersonic loads and 285-350 gr. in subsonic loads. This will be the twenty-sixth caliber available to our customers. 


.30-06 Barrels


Next in line are 22” and 24” barrels lengths for our BC-8 platform .30-06 by June 10. These will get you extra yardage for those long-range trophies. 

check out our current offering of 24" upper and rifle for the 300 Magnum here.


The current release date of the  much-anticipated BC-202, a .22 Magnum in a semi-auto non-AR platform, is mid-June. These come standard with a Hogue over-molded stock, detachable ten-round magazine, billet receiver, and M1913 picatinny rail. Great for hunting including groundhogs, rabbits, squirrels, and up to coyote-size animals.


Recently, BCA released its first polymer lower, full-size 9mm handgun: the BC101. Now, its baby brother will be released the last week of June: BC102. It is simply a compact version of the BC101 with all the same features:

-         RMR Cut for optics

-         416R Stainless Steel barrel

-         Bear Fur Stippling on grip for better control 

-         M1913 Picatinny Rail for accessories such as flashlight

-         Window slide cuts

-         Photo luminescent Night Sights

-         Slide serrations for better grip

-         Two (2) 15 round magazines 

.22 ARC

This is another caliber that has superior ballistics. With a 62-gr. bullet leaving the muzzle at 3,300 fps, it far exceeds more common calibers. The increased velocity increases the effective range without increasing recoil. With a faster twist it will also stabilize heavier bullets. It is still in the AR15 platform. Target release is mid-July.


Enjoy your BCA products and above all:  BE SAFE!!!

Keep up the good work. The 8.6 Blackout and 22 ARC, along with an affordable semiautomatic rifle chambered for 22 magnum are great additions to your product line. Im a real fan.

just couple suggestions, It would be nice to see more AR calibers, with the option of a (left side charge, and right eject) especially 5.56/223. Maybe even an option for nonreciprocating, (left side, or ambi forward charging) uppers, also ambi lowers. any chance of seeing any AR's, with more of a cyberpunk/sci fi, or futuristic aesthetic?
