Professional Grade Weaponry, by BCM®™
Made by Bravo Company MFG, Inc. (BCM®™) These Barreled Upper Receiver Groups are designed for shooting professionals 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
M4 Feed Ramp Flat Top 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® uppers 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 and private security personal 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 on the USGI M16/M4 rifles 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 ammo.
Mil-Spec F-Marked Forged Front Sight Bases
Mil-Spec for rifles issued to the troops require taller front sight bases on all flat top AR rifles. Many commercial offerings use M16A2 height front sight bases on all of their barrels regardless of what type of upper it is installed on. As a result, owners of rifles and carbines with the flat top receiver configuration can have problems getting a proper 'zero' for elevation with Mil-Spec back up iron sights. As all of the BCM® uppers are built for flat top uppers, all have the proper Mil-Spec F marked front sight base to insure the correct height for iron sight zeroing when using military iron sights. Mil-Spec taper pins secure the forged front sight base with the sling swivel secured by tubular rivets.
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.

    BCM never disappoints

    Posted by Cory Nash on Jan 13th 2016

    Just got the upper configured this evening. As expected, the build quality doesn't disappoint. Pulling the barrel from the receiver and punching the taper pics from the FSB was a quick reminder that BCM rifles are built like a tank. I have every confidence this upper will run as well as the Kino I've been hammering on for years. I won't go anywhere else.

    14.5" upper

    Posted by Matt Sherman on Dec 19th 2015

    This is a great product, of course. No surprise there. It came well packaged, on-time with no surprises. Throwing in the hat, which is now my favorite new hat and extra goodies was a nice bonus.

    Light weight indeed

    Posted by MainD on Apr 1st 2015

    This upper is pretty awesome. I used it for a K.I.S.S. type of carbine. The finished product came out lighter then a SIG pm400 11.5 AR pistol with SIG brace, that I have since sold. I put 100 rounds through it with m855 and m193, plus a little black kills 50gr tsx. It had one failure to chamber (possibly still breaking in). I got 1.25 inch groups at 50 yards with irons and no doubt it would do better in more capable hands.

    Good piece of gear.

    Posted by Vile on Jun 12th 2014

    Easy to manipulate due to weight and length. The weight of every weapon and kit can be critical, especially if you are old and small like me. It is the next best thing to a SBR. BCM stands behind their products NO EXCUSES SIR seems to be an unwritten motto.

    Excellent Upper

    Posted by Andrew on Oct 21st 2013

    After doing a ton of research, I bought this upper for my first AR build. I've only shot a few AR's, but this upper feels totally different. Smooth operation, solid construction, etc. This is a high quality product, and I'm so happy with it. The transaction was flawless too, fast shipping, bonus goods likes stickers, a DVD, and a hat. Great company with great products. I will definitely be purchasing again.

    OUTSTANDING!

    Posted by Hooligan on May 2nd 2013

    I recently picked up this upper to replace a 16" govt. profile. I took it out today for it's maiden shoot. The difference (to me) is night and day! I really liked my 16" middie, but this upper is like a natural extension of my arms and eyesight. I was dinging like a champ from the offhand after getting it sighted in. Thanks Bravo! You have a loyal comopany in me. Semper Fi!
