First Look Bear Creek Arsenal New .45 ACP and 10mm Pistol Caliber Carbines

NEW from Bear Creek Arsenal comes PCC AR-15s in .45 ACP and 10mm Auto!

Teased at SHOT Show 2023, these units are now in production and ready for sale on the BCA website. 

The new PCCs use Glock-style magazines (Glock 21 style for the .45 ACP and Glock 20 style for the 10mm), and both feature simple blowback actions with signature BCA side charging handles.

These come in both rifle and pistol configurations, with barrel lengths ranging from 7.5” to 16”. MSRP is between $540 and $560, depending on model and barrel length. None of the BCA options include a magazine, but magazines are available for sale on the BCA site.

All models come with 1:16 twist barrels, side charging handles, parkerized barrels, and only available in black.

“10mm is known and loved for its high stopping power, but its heavy recoil and lower capacity can scare away many shooters. Bear Creek Arsenal’s® 10mm carbine solves these issues with an 8 oz buffer to soften recoil and compatibility with GLOCK 20 style 30-round magazines. Like Bear Creek Arsenal’s® .45 ACP pistol caliber carbine, the 10mm PCC is set on a new “AR-10MM” platform and features a Gen-2 side charging handle.”
