Bravo Company builds:  Life Saving Tools™
 
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.
 
Featuring BCM’s Patent Pending MK2 Upper Receiver
This proprietary design offers enhanced rigidity over the USGI product.  The increased rigidity limits barrel deflection which aids in consistency/accuracy.   Less flex also reduces premature damage, wear, and failure of bolt lugs from misalignment.   A gas expansion chamber is machined above the charging handle track, combined with dual vents machined at the rear (each side, above charging handle latch) help to redirect and vent gas away the shooters face.
 
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.

    Light

    Light barrel and swings well when in tight quarters. No fatigue over long period of use. The MK2 upper seems rugged and beefier where it needs to be.

    BCM® MK2 Standard 14.5" Mid Length (ENHANCED Light Weight-*FLUTED*) Upper Receiver Group w/ MCMR-13 Handguard

    A while ago I built an AR with a BCM pencil barrel and BCM parts for my wife. She loved the light weight, solidness and accuracy. I found myself borrowing her rifle more and more lately because the lightness made it easier for me to handle at my 70 years of age. I decided to get my own and haven't regretted it. I can't really say that the fluting has added more accuracy over the standard pencil profile, but the weight reduction allows me to shoot more accurately with less fatigue. Something to maybe consider when you get to be my age.

    Awesome

    Out of the box the barrel put 3 rounds on a dime at ~50y. Gassed perfectly too.

    Fantastic upper! Throwing together a first rifle for my daughter. Could not be happier with BCM quality and weight savings. Anyone who gives this a less than 5 star rating for something as stupid as a blem is a punk who only has safe queens.

    My Favorite Upper

    Posted by Johnny Nguyen on Oct 12th 2020

    My absolute favorite upper hands down. Super light, perfect length for me to have a comfortable hold, enough room for all my accessories, and i love a mid length gas system. Got my comp on it with a H2 buffer. One of the best shooting guns i got.

    MEDIC!

    Love the upper BUT when it arrived it had not one, but two spots on the handguard that were knicked showing raw metal. Not a big deal as I'll just take a black Birchwood Casey pen to those spots. I've been a long time BCM customer but if I'm being completely honest, I'm starting to notice the quality control slip a bit in recent years. For $1,000 complete upper, I shouldn't have to be touching it up with a Birchwood Casey pen. I haven't shot it yet, but if I have any issues, I'll definitely update this review. I don't expect to have any issues with performance but we'll see. Overall satisfied with my purchase and I would still recommend BCM products to my friends and family.
