About the BCM® BFH 16" Mid Length ELW Complete Upper Receiver w/ MCMR-15 Handguard

All BCM® Upper Receiver Groups with a MCMR Handguard Include:

  • One 3" Picatinny Rail Section
  • One BCM MCMR Sling Mount

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.

    16in MCMR ELW Upper

    If your needs are for light-weight combined with excellent accuracy and bomb-proof durability, this is the upper for you. On top of all that, it is an excellent value. It's worth every penny.

    Very Happy

    The fit and finish on this upper are outstanding. It fits into my Smith and Wesson M&P15 lower receiver better than the original, with almost no play or wiggle between the two receivers. With the ammo shortages, I have not been able to shoot it much, but with my first tests, she shoots around 3 MOA with federal bulk M193 and M855. However, if you spring for the IMI 77gr OTM Razor Core, that tightens up to about 1-1.5 MOA. Overall I am very happy with this upper.

    BCM 16” ELW BFH Upper Receiver

    I am amazed at the quality of this upper. The fit and finish is right in line with what everyone says when they mention BCM quality. I was able to find a BCM lower also and the fit is tight. I am pleased I finally got one. If you’re on the fence, just buy it.

    Reliable, rugged and accurate

    Probably the best bang for the buck upper receiver group on the market. Absolutely flawless craftsmanship and QC from BCM.

    For a chrome lined CHF barrel its extremely accurate, and putting match grade ammo will make it pretty damn close to sub-moa. The barrel is super light weight and makes manuevering with the gun very easy. The barrel also cools down fairly quickly after running it for a while. The gun is also not overgassed and shoots very soft with a H2/blue spring combo.

    The MCMR-15 is an extremely rugged handguard and it will definitely withstand any drops or dings.

    The upper receiver and handguard fit and finish is perfect and should fit well with any mil-spec lower receiver.

    Make sure to get the BCG included in the bundle as BCM bolt carrier groups are some of the best on the market.

    Seriously this upper will eat any ammo you throw at it. Just don't leave steel cased ammo inside the chamber with a super hot barrel other wise it will get stuck.

    All-in-all get this upper receiver while its still in stock. The price to performance ratio cannot be beaten. You can trust this rifle with your life.

    Great Upper

    I have not shot this yet but the fit and finish is awesome! I mated the upper with a BCM lower I bought separately and they fit perfectly together. I have bought other BCM uppers and lowers and they all performed very well. I am expect this BCM rifle to have zero issues working or with accuracy. I will attempt to update when I get to the range. Keep up the outstanding work BCM!
