11.5” Recon profile BSP (Subsonic / full power) 6.8 SPC barrel with threaded muzzle for AR-15 platform rifles.
This barrel shoots both our 200 grain 6.8 BSP bullets (check 'em out HERE) at subsonic velocities and standard full-power factory 6.8 SPC loads flawlessly, easily cycling subsonic ammunition with a silencer. While the 16" BSP barrel will cycle 200 grain bullet subsonic ammo without a silencer, the 11.5" BSP barrel has too little dwell time to make this work. A silencer is needed for fully reliable cycling with the 11.5" BSP barrel when using subsonic ammunition.

The Recon profile is our mid-weight AR-15 barrel, and is lighter than our SPR. These barrels are fully capable of MOA accuracy, if not better, when fed quality ammunition. Click HERE to see the detailed technical data on the BSP (Bison Subsonic Platform) on our “Product Information” page.
Optional Shim Set: The best 5$ you will ever spend! These stainless steel shims guarantee you perfect and hassle free barrel nut / gas tube alignment within the correct torque specs every time. For more information on our shims and a step-by-step guide to their use check out our video HERE.
Optional Bolt: We check every bolt / barrel for proper headspace before they leave our shop. For more information on our bolts click HERE.
Optional Bolt Carrier: Carriers ship assembled and include the gas key, firing, retaining and cam pins. If you purchase a bolt and a carrier, we will assemble the complete carrier group for you before shipping. For more information on our carriers click HERE.
Optional Gas Block Pinning: Only available for low-pro gas blocks. We drill and ream precise holes in the barrel and gas block then press-fit a dowel pin through so that the block will never shift on the barrel. Most military and police weapons are pinned. For more information on pinning click HERE.
