My first interaction with the fine folks at Bear Creek Arsenal (BCA) was last January at the latest SHOT show in Vegas. Out of the several hundred vendors I spoke with, they really stood out as authentic and enthusiastic. They patiently answered all my questions and showed me their latest and greatest products. I could really tell they were a company on the way up.

Out of thousands of products, I chose their new 300 Win Mag as a piece to feature in my initial write-up. Here it is.

Their “Huntmaster” .300 Win Mag has a great solid feel that you immediately know means business. If I recall, it has a 20″ Parkerized barrel with a 1:10 twist. Yet another item on my Christmas list. Photo by the author.

A Real Up and Comer

Established in 2013, Bear Creek Arsenal is a brand name that strikes a chord with gun enthusiasts, particularly fans of versatile and widely popular AR-15 and AR-10 rifles. Carving out a niche in the competitive firearms industry, BCA offers an attractive blend of quality, variety, affordability, and exceptional customer service. This unique mix has resulted in a robust customer base that respects Bear Creek not only as a firearms manufacturer but as a trustworthy and reliable brand.

Exceptional Quality and Craftsmanship

Bear Creek’s reputation is built squarely on the quality of its products. After having a couple of cups of coffee with them during an almost hour-long discussion, I learned that every firearm they produce is meticulously crafted with precision engineering, ensuring each part fits perfectly and functions as intended. They have over 400 CNC machines manned by expert operators running day and night. From the machining of the barrels to the final assembly, they emphasize quality at every step of their end-to-end manufacturing process, making reliable firearms that consistently deliver performance and durability. I told them that’s a recipe for success. They smiled.
