About the BCM® BFH 11.5" Carbine Complete Upper Receiver w/ QRF-10 Handguard

Manufactured by Bravo Company MFG, Inc. (BCM)

These Barreled Upper Receiver Groups are designed for shooting professionals and responsible civilians with the Mil-Spec features for the demands of their duty. They are fully assembled, headspaced, and test fired.
As a note: BCM barrel components are parkerized separately before assembly. Prior to shipping, all BCM upper receiver groups are test fired for function, laser bore sighted with a Milspec carry handle for sight alignment within Mil-Specs, and then batch samples are test fired for accuracy. As such, the upper receiver group will show handling marks consistent with these quality control procedures.

Cold Hammer Forged Barrels

This process of manufacturing barrels has been used for European small arms for generations, and it is gaining popularity in the United States because of the increased barrel life and outstanding accuracy of a hammer forged barrel. The BCM BFH series of barrels are made right here in the USA. (Just like all the BCM products.)

M4 Feed Ramp Barrel Extension and Upper Receiver

In developing the USGI M4 carbine as one of the primary weapons for today's infantry, some modifications were performed to the original M16 platform to enhance the reliability of the shorter barreled carbines. With the shorter carbine gas system and the increased gas port pressure, the carbine cycled faster, and at times the cycle rate could be faster than the magazine would feed ammunition. One of the modifications done to increase reliable feeding included enhancing the angle and the length of the feed ramps.
This USGI modification was done to both the barrel extension and the upper receiver, creating a longer and steeper feed ramp. These Mil-Spec M4 feed ramps are part of the original CNC manufacturing process. As a result, the factory machined M4 feed ramps on the receiver are hard coat anodized which adds significant strength to the aluminum. This feature is offered on all BCM upper receivers and all BCM barrels.

T-Marked Upper Receiver

The contemporary M16/M4 rifle is built around the concept of modularity. All of the BCM flat top uppers feature a USGI type laser etched T-marks to provide addressing for the remounting of tactical accessories such as optics, laser sights, etc. This enables the weapon platform to be easily configured and then accurately reconfigured for each specific mission.

USGI 1/7 Twist Rate

The USGI 1/7 twist rate of all of the BCM barrels is the preferred twist rate by most professional infantryman. This twist rate has proven very versatile and can effectively run the new heavier 5.56 ammo that is hugely popular with military, private security personal, and personal defense for its' superior ballistics.

Mil-Spec Barrel Steel (Certified Mil-B-11595E)

BCM barrel steel is Mil-Spec per MIL-B-11595E, and is independently certified. This grade (CMV) of steel is a Mil-Spec steel used in the USGI M16 family of rifles; it is stronger and will last longer than the typical barrels offered in the commercial market. This Mil-Spec grade steel gets its' additional strength and rigidity from an increase in carbon and/or vanadium in the alloy. This will offer increased barrel life and performance through use in all types of extreme environments and temperatures.

Chrome Bore and Chamber

One of the first modifications that were made to the original M16 in the mid 1960's was the addition of the chrome lined bore and chamber. It is now a worldwide standard in the industry for a battle rifle. The chrome bore and chamber is harder than the barrel steel and will aid in chambering, extraction, and reliability. It increases velocity, and also resist against fouling and corrosion from extended use in the field. This gives the end user a longer barrel life with less required time in maintenance and cleaning.

Manganese Phosphate Barrel Finish

Barrels are parkerized with the manganese phosphate finish (Mil-Spec A-A-59267). Military specifications also state that the entire barrel surface is phosphate finished to create a porous surface to absorb oil as to resist against corrosion from the elements. BCM barrels are phosphated before installation of front sights. This is a much more extensive assembly operation, but insures that the entire barrel is finished and protected . . .even under the front sight base.

5.56 NATO Chambers

The USGI 5.56 NATO chamber is the best choice for effective deployment, reliability, and compatibility, of higher chamber pressures of military or high quality personal defense ammounition. 

HPT / MP Inspected Barrels

Military specifications require that barrels undergo a HPT (High-Pressure Test) load as a part of quality assurance procedures. Commonly referred to as a proof load, the M197 HPT is rated for 70,000 psi. BCM barrels are proof loaded and then MPI (Magnetic Particle Inspected) to detect any possible flaws in the barrels surface. The barrels are MP inspected with both circular and longitudinal magnetic fields per ASTME1444-01 (current Mil-Spec) to assure a high quality finished product. All BCM barrels are marked HP MP as our proof load marking.

    Fantastic Upper

    I bought this Upper for my SBR with the BCG and Charging handle. Fantastic piece of gear and shoots very smooth. Will buy BCM again.

    awesome upper!

    I ran a class with this the first time I used it. Super tight half inch groups from prone at 50 yards. Stretched it out to 200 and was ringing steel all day. I'll definitely be buying another BCM upper for my next build. Customer service was amazing and shipping was fast. There isn't one reason I can't recommend BCM

    BFH 11.5 Carbine QRF-10

    I’m a huge fan of BCM since 2002. Bought countless items from them, because of the high quality of the products they make. But this time I’m a little disappointed, I bought a 11.5 upper, and I noticed the QRF rail doesn’t line up straight with the upper receiver, the rail is high in the front and low in the middle. Disappointed!

    Too Handy

    I have a KAC SR16 and a 16” LMT MLOK, this 11.5” went on a BCM “pistol” lower with an SBA3 brace. Gotta say, this might be my new favorite gun as it’s too handy to maneuver. Topped with a Razor 1-6 and type 2 RMR01.

    Customer review

    Love this. Look and fitment is great. BCM BCG in conjunction has been flawless. Excellent barrel thickness with govt profile. Despite being a quad-rail, this is super lightweight, and still rigid.
    Shoots real well. No complaints, nothing but pleased. Shipped quickly and included a good amount of swag

    Wow no BS

    Got this for a customer. Email customer service is awesome! This upper could be run over by a tank and still preform well. It’s what you’d expect from a Marine Owned Company! Ty so much!! Wish I could be a dealer!

    Quality At A Great Price Point

    Outstanding as expected. I dont want to write an essay so Im just providing my initial thoughts as there is plenty of information out there. The BFH barrel is worth the upgrade. I highly recommend it if you are deciding between button vs hammer forged. BCM inspects the barrel, BCG, and gas system quite extensively - and part of the overall cost of this upper is that labor.

    As for the upper as a whole, the QRF is one of the best quad-rails on the market. Its strong and the lightest quad I have ever used. The way BCM floats the rail and locks it in place is quite innovative; transverse through the rail and interlocking to prevent any movement. Fit and finish was as expected from any BCM product. Shipping was fast, I ordered M and had it on F. You will not be disappointed. GL!
