Apex, N.C. – ( Precision Machine (BPM), believes in making top quality rifles that will last a lifetime and provide unmatched performance that exceeds customer expectations.

That belief is what drove BPM to create the new CQB-10 and LR-10 for 2015. Manufacturing and producing all of their own components and parts in house on an impressive array of CNC machines allows for extreme attention to detail and quality control. BPMs .308 rifles will be available in both a 16 inch (CQB) and 20 inch (LR) version, each offering premium features as standard.

The rifles feature match grade barrels that are CNC machined from Montana 416 SS barrel blanks in-house, and are then Nitromet treated along with the gas tube for a tough black finish that is more corrosion and heat resistant. Free floated inside BPM’s proprietary Ultralite Extreme 14” hand guard, they offer unmatched accuracy right out of the case. The hand guards feature a sleek lightweight design with four reinforced interchangeable sling swivel inserts and BPM’s proprietary barrel nut making it the most rigid and durable in the industry.

The billet upper and lower receivers are machined out of one solid piece of 7075 aluminum before being hard anodized. The lower features an ambidextrous bolt latch and adjustable tension screw. The upper houses a bolt carrier group that’s nickel boron coated standard. Also standard is a choice of either a HIPERFIRE 24E or Geissele G2S trigger. Rounding out the package is BPM’s new Heavy Metal Buffer System for reduced felt recoil.

Rifles ship in a custom Patriot Case’s AR case with MAGPUL 5 and 9 Slot rail sections, as well as a removable bipod insert.

I love these guys. After leaving a message, Andrew Barnes called me and said I could bring the CQB-10 up there and they would take care of it (I live less than an hour away from Apex). Lots of helpful suggestions on ammo; extremely helpful all around. These guys have the best products and customer service in the industry.

A few years ago I bought a BPM CQB-10 (serial number 0006). I fired it a few times and loved it, until, one day, it jammed on me. When I tried to break it down, something was obviously wrong with the buffer and spring. They popped out as soon as I broke it open. I found the detent pin and the detent pin spring down in the lower receiver and the tip of the detent pin was bent. Apparently, the buffer assembly was not screwed in far enough to hold the detent pin in place or, maybe it was and… Read more »


And yet I just seen a barns 308 less than a year old jam for the second time, this time so bad the round is still currently in the rifle. $2,600 for a gun that has been back to the factory twice. Barns is a lemon of a company. After what I’ve seen I’ll never recommend this rifle. Sad, a company in my back yard can’t produce a gold standard rifle (sure has a gold standard price) that costs more than my 2 AR-15 combined.

How accurate are CQB or LR-10, do they have a guarantee?
