Bravo Company builds:  Life Saving Tools™
 
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.
 
 
Government Barrel Profiles
Duty rifles are built to be carried - day in and day out. The USGI barrel profiles (often referred to as the Government Profile) enable the operator to carry their weapon for longer periods of time and deploy them faster than the heavier commercial H-Barrel counterparts. The government profile barrel is also compatible with the current M203 mounting systems.
 
 
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.

    An amazing upper that exceeded my expectations despite BCM's reputation and my ownership of several other premium AR-15s. Looking forward to owning it for many years. Shipping was incredibly fast. Customer service answered a number of questions I had about my build. Awesome!

    The Greatest Upper Ever

    Posted by anonymous on Sep 22nd 2016

    14.5"barrel provides shortest available experience without NFA stamp. Love the full size BFH barrel with the ultra-light weight KMR handguard. Keymod is definitely the way to go.

    Great upper receiver for first ar-15build

    Posted by Mark D. on Sep 22nd 2016

    I'm really impressed with this upper receiver. It not only looked great but functions very well; not one fte/ftf after 400+ rounds so far. Smooth and buttery, especially when it was well lubed by bcm out of the box.

    It also came with a qd mount, a 3" plastic picatinny rail, and my new favorite 'Murica hat.

    I chose the pin and weld option for this upper to be NJ compliant, I just wonder if they can do the same for an 18" inch upper though. BCM is fantastic. Will buy again for a future build.

    Great product and service

    Posted by Jay on Sep 22nd 2016

    Purchased a 14.5" complete upper w/ kmr. First time with the key mod rail and I was surprised with how light it was. Made for handling the weapon with ease. Great service and fast shipping. Would recommend them to anyone looking for an AR-15 at an affordable price.

    Outstanding piece of equipment!!

    Posted by Nick on Sep 22nd 2016

    The upper arrived promptly. When I opened the box, I noticed extra swag that came with it which is much appreciated. The upper mated perfectly with my lower and I could not be more impressed. BCM makes high quality products at a working man's budget. Thank you BCM for your fair prices on your milspec plus products!
