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.

    New BCM Lightweight Upper

    Posted by James Jackson on Jan 21st 2016

    Excellent fast delivery service on the "In Stock" product! The new upper received is flawless. The Gunfighter Charging Handle and the Mod. 0 Muzzle Device included are outstanding additions that make the BCM well worth a couple of extra bucks over the competition.

    ............and did I mention the free & cool BCM hat included? Awesome!

    BCM has me sold as a new customer from here on out.

    Not too shabby

    Posted by Maxx on Nov 11th 2015

    The barrel profile really makes this enjoyable to shoot. I shot 2MOA with iron sights when zeroing. I think the barrel can shoot better with a better marksman. The threads are cut well. My Ranger 2 stays put and does not come loose like it did on my other rifles which cost 3 times the price.
    This setup is using a BCM bolt carrier group in the upper. I experienced no malfunctions running M193 and M855. I did not test any .223 Remington yet but I will test 77gr hand loads on my next outing. Extraction was consistent and dropped brass in a tight pile about 4 feet away at 2 o'clock.
    I do have one complaint. The hand guard cap is loose. It seems as though the FSP was not pinned far enough back leaving some room for the cap to move. This should have been caught in quality control. I am using MOE hand guards and this issue makes the hand guards move a considerable amount. If I can find a permanent fix for this issue then I will update the review.

    Superior

    Posted by Donald Dineen on Jun 25th 2015

    I first bought the similar barrel w/o a hammer forged barrel. It impressed my, so I bought the cold hammer forged model for use in my primary rifle. This barrel along with a SSA trigger made a simple M4 carbine into one of the best performing 5.56mm rifle I have ever use. I can get under 1 MOA groups. It is an amazing carbine. BCM delivers.

    Excellence!

    Posted by Mike on Apr 21st 2015

    I was skeptical of the "pencil" profile barrel on this upper, but I was wrong. This thing is an animal! I was making hits on a 8" steel plate at 300 yards with just an aimpoint pro, and I am by no means a long range shooter. Also, after numerous mags of rapid fire, there was no degradation of accuracy. BCM can make an awesome barrel. This upper is also the smoothest I have EVER handled. From this point forward, the first place I am going to look when building any new ar will be BCM! They ship very fast, and my emails are always answered quickly, which is an area many company's fall way behind in. The only downside to BCM is that their quality is so good, that they are frequently out of stock! If you are on the fence about anything BCM, just go ahead and buy it, you will NOT be disappointed! Don't buy something else just to save a few bucks, you WILL regret it in the long run!
