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.

    Reliable

    Posted by PatsRaw275 on Aug 22nd 2021

    I was initially hesitant to purchase and utilize an upper with a light profile barrel. The system has been very reliable and functions well with a previously purchased BCM Lower. The barrel does heat up a little quicker than my heavier profiled ones, but the only inconvenienced I've noticed with that is slight mirage in the mounted LVPO. Repeatable accuracy has remained unaffected. If you utilize lights, lasers, etc... on the end of your uppers the reduced weight might be welcome. The delivery time was expedient and BCM's Customer Service has been great to deal with. I will continue to utilize their complete rifles and components.

    Best Regards,

    Pat

    Outstanding

    Posted by Steve on Aug 15th 2021

    This is the first upper I bought from Bravo company and I couldn’t be more pleased. Outstanding craftsmanship, customer service and shipping. I would recommend them to anyone and will definitely use them on my next build.

    Top notch quality

    Posted by Sam on Aug 15th 2021

    After going from PSA to Aero. Now to BCM. I'm absolutely impressed with the quality and attention to detail. This upper is by far the best. I've done dozens of builds, this being my first BCM. I loved it so much I bought another a week later.

    Best upper I’ve ever used

    Posted by Phil Overstreet on Aug 10th 2021

    Only 120 rounds so far but this is unequivocally the best AR-15 upper I’ve shot. Gassed perfectly. Arrived covered in oil without any blemishes. Solid fit on Colt lower. Just a great experience. Wish I would have spent the extra few hundred years ago with my builds. Once you go BCM, you never go back!

    Easy Choice

    Posted by Tommy Le on Aug 8th 2021

    Why am I even leaving a review. Everyone knows BCM is solid, it's been proven in battle, and their reputation unanimously praised. My 14.5 p/w came in 3 days in impeccable condition. Awesome work!

    It works

    Posted by Mid length best length on Aug 2nd 2021

    First time on a mid length rifle and I don't think I'll ever go carbine again. BCM is all about quality at a great price and I can't wait to purchase my next upper.

    Amazing

    Posted by Patrick Connelly on Jul 24th 2021

    Have roundly 500 rounds through it which I know isn’t torture test or long term reliability standards but so far this rifle is the best I’ve ever shot. It shoots smoother than any other kid length carbine I’ve ever shot. However the gas system is set up is flawless.
    Rifle feels super solid and the rail seems very strong while also being light weight.
    BCM Is without a doubt the best bang for your buck for duty grade ARs. If you’re on the fence about this rifle, just do yourself a favor and pull the trigger
