The BCM®™ Compensator Mod 1 - 5.56

  • Tuned slots and interior cone offer recoil mitigation and compensation of muzzle-rise.
  • Dual action brake minimizes side pressure and designed to have less noise associated with typical compensators.
  • Nitride treated for maximum corrosion resistance
  • Predrilled hole at the base for permanent installation.
  • Includes a Crush Washer
  • Should be installed by a qualified armorer
  • Threaded 1/2 x 28 for 5.56mm AR15 platforms.
  • Not a flash hider


In order to install the muzzle device, you will need a "thin" wrench. A standard armorer's wrench or box wrench is too thick.

  • Extended version of the BCM®™ MOD 0 - 5.56.
  • Mount per BATF specs to bring your 14.5 inch barrel over 16 inches (non-NFA)


Please note:

The combustion gasses exiting the muzzle of a rifle are extremely hot, traveling at extreme velocity, and contains not only burning gasses but solid particles of unburnt powder as well as metals from the projectile. Due to the inherent nature of steel, it is nearly impossible to survive unaffected in this environment when directly exposed. The high temperatures begin to make the steel more malleable, which allows solid particles and pressure waves to deform and erode surfaces upon exit.


Due to the new and unique design of the BCM® compensators, the user may notice small pits on the interior surfaces of the compensator. This is normal. Most designs do not impede the exit flow very much, while the BCM® approach is exactly opposite. These surfaces are specifically designed to operate within the environment found at the muzzle, and are intended to allow significant amounts of deterioration before any loss of performance is seen/felt. These compensators have been tested through many thousands of rounds, and while the wear surfaces may give pause to some users, trust when we say that it's normal.

    compensator mod 1

    I purchased this product after doing some research on several compensators . It failed my expectations and the company's description terribly. The flash was more visible with this than with my stock flash suppressor. It is also advertised to have less side pressure making it a good choice for CQB and that is false. I was shooting from an open window with the barrel only protruding slightly from the window frame and the side pressure blew out the glass. I have tried contacting the company via phone to speak to a live person and that does not happen. Complete waste of my money and not the kind of customer service I would expect from a fellow Veteran. I guess it is my loss.

    Comp mod1

    I bought a BFH 14.5 mid length upper w/ MCMR-13 handguard in June of 2021. The comp they installed on it was not the comp 1. You can see muzzle flash from the international space station… I contacted BCM via email and their response was they made changes to the comp for manufacturing reasons. Not impressed

    Amazing comp ( bcmgunfighter mod 1)

    Not gonna lie, I judge comps hard, a lot claim to be the best, let alone reduce muzzle rise, recoil and low report. I was honestly surprised by this comp,, in a good way. Not that the 5.56 needs much recoil reduction, but this one made it feel like I was running a 22lr. Muzzle rise was there but not bad at all. Failure drills were easy, Mozambique drills were fun and mag dumps made me feel superhuman, creating a fist sized center mass hole. I HIGHLY recommend this comp on a 14.5 rifle and am going to get a couple 30 cal versions for a 300blk, 308 and 300wm. If they work half as well, I'll finally find my unicorn comp. Oh by the way, muzzle flash is surprisingly low in low light drills. Very impressed, then again, BCM seems to always deliver.

    Sidenote: Wish they made their charging handles for the AR-10 platform

    BCM 4 the Win

    Running the mod 1 on a 14.5 build. 1000 rounds and I’m convinced this is the best all around device out there. I’ve been running Surefire warcomps for a few years now and they are outstanding but the mod 1 is better. Flatter, shorter, quieter.
    I’m now putting a mod 0 on my new LWRCi (16”)……

    Gunfighter Mod-1 Comp

    I mounted the Mod 1 comp and immediately noticed hardly any muzzle climb and excellent recoil reduction. I'm so happy with this purchase and I know you won't regret it if you buy it. Well worth the money and as always being a BCM product it is high quality.

    Bcm compensator mod 1

    I really like this compensator. It does tend to blast people standing to the side of you and occasionally will blast the shooter. Only real complaint is with it tightened all the way on it is crooked. Not sure if that was the installer making and error or a flaw in design. Doesn’t stop me from rocking it though!

    BCM MOD1

    This compensator has been changed, it now has cross ports in the back of the long slot on the sides. This is not visible or noted anywhere on the website, so I am posting this review. BCM states it still has lower side blast and may have more flash depending on the ammunition used. Sort of a letdown having no notice of any changes to the device. Not going to pin and weld something that is not tested as extensively as the previous model.

    Great Compensator

    After installing the BCM Mod-1 Compensator I noticed a clear reduction in muzzle climb and recoil. I was using a basic Flash Hider, and this product made a big difference. I highly recommend this to anyone. You won't be disappointed with it.

    crush washer didn't stay circular when it collapsed so kind of out of alignment
