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.
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.

    BCM ELW fluted 14.5

    It came packed in oil, however it was also in perfect condition, hence the oil. Fits perfect with my Rock River lower that I've had forever. This rifle has been through four builds including as a suppressed SBR until I had to move to a different state. Build quality, handling characteristics, aesthetics, all great. I had an interesting time getting the star chamber and the Cryptic bcg (necessary: no, did I want it: yes) to mate, took a little oil to get it there. I presume this is due to both being made to tight tolerances. Since then it's run great with no issues. I can't speak much to accuracy as I've only been using xm193 but I'm getting 1 to 1.5 moa with a 1-6 Vortex Viper. I bought it with the 1.5 battle comp, love it, would have regretted not getting it. However the reason for the 4 stars is that no muzzle device should cost 180+. Do I love it? Yes. Should it be that expensive? No. Overall if you want a lightweight upper, I would seriously take a hard look at this one.

    I went back and forth about spending the money on this upper but I’m very glad I did. Great quality, I really like it. My goal was to build a lighter rifle and this is perfect. If you are thinking about buying it...BUY IT.

    I’m a self admitted research freak. Spent forever going back / forth between this and a DD upper. After tons of research it’s apparent BCM makes the best uppers at a better price.

    Put this on a BAD stripped lower I build with a Geissele trigger and this is simply the Best rifle I’ve ever shot. Dead accurate and a dream to shoot.

    Stop looking and buy it. You won’t get any better

    Very pleased

    Very pleased. Received my upper just a couple of days after I placed my order. I've always preferred MLOK, and BCM is second to none, so this was the upper for me. Slapped the upper on my BCM lower, and I'm good to go. Beautiful rifle and very light. This has quickly become my go-to setup.

    Amazing rifle!

    My first mid length and I can’t stress enough how sweet this thing is! Worth every penny. My only regret is that i cheaped out and declined the BCG.
