I have a built lower just sitting here, and that upper looks nice. Button rifled 410 stainless, hmmmmm.

I have to say I'm intrigued by it, but I would be more intrigued if match ammo were more affordable. Without match ammo you're not going to see the benefit of the stainless barrel.

Oh yeah...plus I already have a BCM middy so I'm happy. :D

Reloading is as good, and better than match ammo. Its also cheaper.

:iagree: I think my handloads are better than match ammo.

I used one of these puppies in my carbine build I recently finished: http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/BCM-16-Recce-SS410-Barrel-with-Mid-Length-Gas-p/bcm-recbrl%2016ss.htm

I'm very happy with it. The first thing you'll notice is how needlessly beautiful the thing is. The machining is very very nice, and hey, it's shiny. The balance is great with my ace socom carbine stock, and I haven't had any FTF/FTEs at all through about 200 rnds. Can't speak to the accuracy, as I'm just shooting on irons with it for the time being...

Any pics of your build with the BCM SS410 tube?

Stop, I'm getting excited. I'm soooo close to doing it, and if it's tight, the Noveske Recce will be sold once I get it back from Grants Pass.

I would do it if I only had the time...
