FULCRUM barrels are the first barrels for the AR platform that deliver the perfect balance of heavy barrel performance and mid-weight utility. In other words, phenomenal accuracy without all the weight, so you can carry longer and shoot better. A lot better.

SPECS

FULCRUM barrels are currently available only in 18” lengths and in .223, 6.8 SPC and .308 Win.

FULCRUM barrels have a larger overall diameter than our mid-weight barrels, but a smaller overall diameter than our heavy barrels. FULCRUMs are the only barrels on the market that are .825 diameter from the gas block to the muzzle, so you must use our proprietary FULCRUM gas blocks for now (more on that below).

The 18” .223 FULCRUM barrel (including barrel extension) weighs 40 oz., which is 2 oz. more than our standard 18” SPR .223 barrel and 6 oz. more than our standard 18” RECON .223 barrel (including extensions).

The 18” 6.8 SPC FULCRUM barrel (including barrel extension) weighs 38 oz., which is 2 oz. more than our standard 18” SPR 6.8 SPC barrel and 6 oz. more than our standard 18” RECON 6.8 SPC barrel (including extensions).

All FULCRUM barrels are stress relieved 416R stainless steel and have precision made BAT Machine barrel extensions with M4 feed ramps. They are available now with threaded muzzles, with unthreaded on the way, and in both cases are cut with 11 degree target crowns.

SCIENCE
So what do you get for these few extra ounces? A kick ass barrel. Here’s why:

The FULCRUM’s increased diameter produces a barrel that is stiffer than our mid-weight barrels and has more surface area, both as a result of the larger diameter and the fluting. The increase in surface area produces better heat dissipation and a faster rate of cooling. The underlying increase in thermal mass also means FULCRUMs are less sensitive to fluctuations in temperature, which translates to more consistent shooting under all conditions.

The increase in diameter also pushes more mass towards the front of the FULCRUM barrel, which improves the harmonics and increases the overall stability and balance of the shooting platform. The extra mass decreases felt recoil, and its distribution increases the moment of inertia, which reduces angular acceleration for a smooth shot that helps you stay on target.

The preceding are all the reasons why standard heavy barrels shoot so well. The beauty of the FULCRUM is that you get all that performance from a barrel that weighs far less.

GAS BLOCKS
All FULCRUM barrels have a .825 diameter gas block journal, which means they will only work with Bison Armory FULCRUM gas blocks. There are no other .825 gas blocks on the market (yet). We didn’t design the barrels this way just to mess with you, we did it because it was the only way to achieve the optimal balance of weight and performance.

.300 AAC Blackout is coming to Bison Armory

.300 AAC BLACKOUT is coming soon to Bison Amory! The market has spoken, and people want .300 BLK. Look for our own newly designed 8.5″ and 16″ barrels and uppers to arrive in our store over the next couple of months. We will keep you updated here and elsewhere as the inventory rolls in and products become available!

The 8.5″ pistol Blackout barrels will only take a low profile gas block, but there’s no way to run one with a piston anyway. The 16″ pistol gas Blackout barrels are going to have our new CQR close quarters recon profile, with a 1:7 twist. They will be 6-groove, button rifled, and made from 416R stainless. For a hunting gun or tactical rifle that can reach out, nothing compares with 6.8 in the AR-15 platform. But for close in work, the .300 BLK is top notch. Pistol powders give it a lot of oomph from a small powder charge.
