About the BCM® BFH 16" Mid Length Complete Upper Receiver w/ QRF-9 Handguard

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.

    I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised when this arrived, it is absolutely a piece of art. That may sound funny to some but if you’ve had to deal with some of the poor quality craftsmanship that I have; you would understand. I recently purchased a barrel from a competing company with an FSB and once it arrived I noticed right away how severely canted the FSB was. The company that I purchased it through wanted to penalize me with a restocking fee to return it so I ended up keeping it and ripping off the site and putting a low profile gas block on it. Which is exactly what I did not want to do. To be honest I was concerned that this would have the same issue but no; this FSB on this particular model lined up beautifully and now this is going to be my main go to. Thanks everyone there at BCM for making such a quality product, having integrity and following through with your word.
    You have earned yet another loyal customer...

    Piece of Art

    This looks amazing on the BCM lower I also recently purchased. Outstanding craftsmanship. Haven't been out to the range with it yet, but if it shoots anything like the way it feels in my hand, I'll be spot on.

    BCM-Solid As Always & Shipped Quickly

    I've assembled two rifles using this same upper:
    BCM quality. BCM reliability.
    Mid-length gas system on a 16", hammer-forged barrel makes for a rather versatile platform.
    Quad rail may not be sexy, but it works.

    If another project comes along I would happily buy another of these.

    Bcm mid length with qrf-9 hand guard

    I’m sure by now everyone knows about the quality and attention to details that bcm is famous for. 500 rounds down the pipe so far with multiple different ammo types and not a single hiccup(as to be expected). Now what really got was the fact that I placed my order Wednesday morning, and by Friday afternoon the upper was in my hands, astounding. Seriously just can’t say enough about these guys, great across the board, will continue to buy from them and recommend them every chance I get, thanks again bcm
