About the BCM® BFH 16" Mid Length 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. 

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.

    BCM BFH 16 mid-length upper reciever group MCMR 15

    Extremely impressed with the quality of this product! The fit and finish with my Spikes Tactical lower receiver is perfect. The MCMR hand guard is exactly what I was looking for, great design for any accessory mounting and looks great too. Very happy I decided to go with BCM and will definitely order from them in the future.

    BCM 16” midlength BFH, MCMR upper

    I’ve been lusting after one of these for a few years. Seems like I’m always settling on something different that I can get used or on some really good sale. After 8 years in the military and 12 years as a cop I’ve had, been issued, used, shot lots of different uppers, lowers and complete rifles of countless brands and several manufacturers. Out of the box, after an initial cleaning and about 100 slow, controlled rounds this BCM upper has produced the best groups at 50, 100, 200 and 300 yards by far.

    I’m up to about 2100 rounds’ish at this point and only had one failure to feed that happened in the first magazine. It’s lighter than I thought it would be considering it’s not the lightweight model and I haven’t really noticed any decay in accuracy after the barrel heats up.

    After the barrel the rail is probably my favorite part of the upper. It came assembled perfectly straight and solid. The rail is currently carrying a Surefire m600 scoutlight, pressure switch and a magpie MBUS pro from sight, and a QD sling attachment so, not a lot of weight. A few guys I work with have the same rail with lots of other stuff attached and supported my the rail and it holds up great for them.

    I guess I’ll end by saying this is by far the very best upper I’ve ever owned or used. I have already recommended this to co-workers and buddies and would also highly recommend it to anyone reading this review while considering purchasing one. It’s well worth the money. I’d buy again and will probably continue to get assembled uppers from BCM In the future.

    Solid Upper

    Very well put together upper receiver group and love the ergonomics of the MCMR-15 rail. It is lightweight and balances extremely well. Accuracy is very acceptable with both 55 gr and 62 gr ball ammo...would probably be an MOA upper with match ammo.

    Lighter and more accurate than I expected!

    I went back and forth a LOT debating between getting the Enhanced lightweight barrel versus the USGI profile (1lbs 6oz vs 1lbs 12oz), but ultimately went with USGI profile and the more common 0.750in gas block. I was pleasantly surprised just how light this upper was overall. Accuracy wise I was also surprised how well it performed for a chrome lined barrel with some of my handloads (~1MOA). The build quality and function is top tier. I've found the mid length gas system to pair very well with a Geissele Super 42 spring and H2 buffer.
