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. These do not include bolt carrier groups, UNLESS selected from the drop down menu above.

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 world wide 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.

? 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.

    It's okay -

    Posted by zack on Nov 11th 2015

    The good:

    Daniel Defense handguard is very nice – quality machining.

    Upper receiver is light

    Barrel quality seems to be good. Wouldn’t say it stands up to Noveske.

    The bad:

    Sloppy fit to my Eagle Arms Golden Eagle lower receiver AND my Colt Sporter HBAR lower receiver. Fair amount of lateral and vertical play when put atop both of my receivers. My upper receiver from YHM fit better – at a lower cost.

    Addressing on upper receiver rail is bright white – like reflective white. Upper receiver seems to be a gloss finish. Doesn’t exactly lending itself to tactical use and/or concealment. Coloring makes it clearly stand apart from my lower receivers – both of which are in flat matte finish. Also the BCM logo is bright white and reflective.

    The upper rail on the receiver didn’t align perfectly with the DD handguard and required adjustment. Not a big deal – but for the cost it should have been perfect from the factory.

    Very Confident in this upper

    Posted by Estes, Sgt-type, one-each on Apr 1st 2015

    This upper is a pure joy to shoot, I have not done anything scientific to measure accuracy but I’m very confident in this upper and have seen this perform vs off –the-shelf weapons. Another thing that has stood out, and I’m only about 400 rounds into it, but I have not had a single failure. I have it matched with a Spikes tactical lower and Geissele 2-stage trigger. The rails are much lighter then they look as is the overall weight of the upper and they feel solid. In short the DD rails feel as solid as they look and weigh about half as much as you’ll expect. The mod-0 comp is loud but I have never been near anything with a muzzle break so I have nothing to compare it to, it’s just a lot louder than an A2 birdcage. What made me write this review is I went shooting with a bunch of friends, whom I let fire the rifle, and got nothing but enthusiastic compliments and at the end of the day I was very happy with this upper.

    Grab it while you can!

    Posted by L. Charleville on Dec 24th 2014

    After weeks of research I found myself with the this BCM upper. It arrived quickly and right out of the box it was a beauty. I wanted something that would last and so far its doing pretty well.
    I threw it on a Palmetto State Armory lower and it fits like a charm, no looseness. Eventually I will get a BCM lower but due to budget Palmetto was the best I could do. Its lighter and just feels tough. It also shoots like a charm! Thanks BCM! I also got a cool hat!!!

    Best Upper

    Posted by Eric on Dec 6th 2013

    I purchased this upper for a rifle build I was doing. The DD rail is one of the best in the industry; light weight, good fit and finish, just overall amazing. I was drawn to the DD because of the full rails at 3,6,9, and 12. I already have a Centurion CMR and wanted to try out someone else. The barrel and upper came in perfect, and fits up perfectly to a Franklin Libertas lower. If you made it this far, stop reading and buy it already! For the price and the low shipping cost, it can't be beat, along with world class customer service.

    Excellent upper!

    Posted by anonymous on Sep 26th 2012

    I live in CA, and this upper was at my door step in one full week. BCM has awesome customer service! I also bought the BCM Auto BCG, another great buy!

    I slapped this upper on my S&W lower and it fits perfectly, the paint matches the lowers finish. I have only shot around 500 rounds through it but it shoots anything: 55gr FMJ to 77gr OTM's.

    You cannot go wrong with BCM!

    Bet on it

    Posted by E. Mazur on Sep 19th 2012

    If you run a gun for a living (LE or Military) and depend your life it, you need to buy the best. I have this upper with BCM lower, BCG, and Aimpoint optic for LE patrols. 1,500 rounds through it so far without a single issue and just ask Pat Rogers, this is the Ferarri of rifles. I am a BCM customer for life.

    Makes my buddies jealous...

    Posted by Dillon on Jan 5th 2012

    This upper is top notch. Excellent quality and with the LITE hand guard, my AR is as light as a feather. Very accurate as well.

    BCM will definitely get my business again

    Solid fit and finish and the durability of a tank

    Posted by Ben Miller on Apr 27th 2011

    I received this upper in late June of 2010 and have been running it hard ever since. I mated it with an RRA lower and had no issues with slop at all. I've run several thousand rounds of ammo of all varieties in this upper, from steel cased junk to match heavy grainers and have not had a single malfunction. Even when thoroughly dirty this thing runs like a champ. In using match ammo of the 69 and 77gr variety, I have received .75 MOA groups consistently, with the better groups occuring with the 77gr ammunition. This upper may cost you a bit more in the short run, but it will last, and get your hits in when you need 'em.

    Another BCM homerun!

    Posted by Stephen Robbins on Jun 13th 2010

    Like everything I've bought from Bravo Company, this upper receiver group is absolutely top notch! I mated this up to an LMT Defender lower and they matched up perfectly, no rattling at all. I've owned off the self ARs that didn't fit together as well. I installed the BCM auto BCG and the charging handle with the tactical latch and it all operates smooth as silk. Couldn't be happier!
