Haley Strategic Partners and Bravo Company Manufacturing Announce The Jack Carbine

by December 12, 2012 12/12/12

The Jack Carbine is a purpose built weapon system developed by Haley Strategic  and built by Bravo Company Manufacturing. While it’s manufactured to strict military specifications, you don’t need a clearance to own one. Each Jack Carbine will be available for purchase directly through BCM.

The first thing you’ll notice about the Jack is the grey finish. It was designed for low-visibility in most environments and was actually developed specifically for this project. Joint Force Enterprises and Haley Strategic came up with a new Cerakote finish called “Disruptive Grey,” which enables the carbine to blend in with most environments easily. As most people know, solid black isn’t really a “natural” color and often stands out to the human eye. This grey produces a matte, neutral color and finish.

Some other information of note is that while the barrel comes in at 14.5″, BCM has permanently attached a compensator to create the civilian legal 16″ barrel length. The Jack Carbine tips the scales at 6 lbs. 11 oz., which includes the light, mount and iron sights.

The carbine itself isn’t the only new thing that Haley Strategic announced.

There has been a lot of debate surrounding which device to go with in terms of compensators and flash hiders. The BCMGUNFIGHTER COMPENSATOR is a hybrid device that aims to be the best option for reducing muzzle rise, minimizing flash signature, lateral pressure and noise. This design has been a year in the making and has been tested to perform.

The Jack Carbine also offers a new stock. A smaller and lighter SOPMOD Bravo buttstock manufactured by B5 Systems, that still maintains the same cheek weld as the previous Crane-developed SOPMOD stocks. It’s basically an improved mil-spec model of the SOPMOD stock.

All of these new components make up the Jack Carbine and will also be available individually for purchase if you’re looking to modify your current AR15 platform. The Jack Carbine MSRP is $2145 and if you remember back to the last article from our DIY AR-15 build about a year ago, we mentioned that the total cost for putting together that rifle was right at $1700 including the hydrographics (not including the price of the tools required to roll your own.)

When you add the Inforce weapon light, mount and included $200 HSP training certificate, there’s no doubt that the value is there for this purpose built carbine created by HSP and BCM.

Seems like a great price considering that geiselle is top notch and the cerakote, it has a very good price.

It's under 2500, a very great price.

Exactly where in the continental United States is this "meant to be used and relied upon day-after-day" and by whom? The majority of the US Military doesn't use this weapon system because they have contracts with other major firearms manufacturers.

Unfortunately it doesn't look like anyone will be getting one of these beautiful weapons, at least not any time soon. Here is a statement from the BCM website:

"Due to the political climate and the demand of Bravo Company Rifles we are completely sold out of all rifles."

The statement on their website makes me wonder if they are ceasing manufacturing until any potential legislation occurs. It's sad to me that law abiding users of these fine tools are targeted by knee jerk reactionaries whenever a tragedy occurs. Hopefully the "political climate" will allow for future purchases of this rifle.

Just built out some BCM BFH 14.5" mid-length carbines and have to say, The Jack is a bargain. You price out all the components and if I did my math correctly, it comes out to $1950 with out the Cerakote. BCM is taking orders for $1,995.00 http://www.bravocompanyusa.com/Order-HSP-The-Jack-Carbine-s/168.htm

What impresses me about the BCM HSP The Jack - is it's a no B.S. carbine. Everything on there, every component is well thought out and planned. Mr. Haley and company is building tools. Well made tools that are meant to be used and relied upon day-after-day.

Looks like a pretty solid package. Toss on your favorite optic and sling and you're ready to go.

What's the point of the fancy finish when you've got a big black hunk of SOPMOD high on your chest?

/camouflaging half a weapon

I was just about to order the EAG from Bravo. For a couple hundred more I think this is a better deal.

It's in the article as $2145. Check out the note that is associated with it though because even though that sounds pricey, it looks to be a good deal. Once you price out the components, it's fairly reasonable.
