About the BCM® Standard 14.5" Mid Length ELW Complete Upper Receiver w/ MCMR-13 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.

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.

    Top notch.

    This is a very well made upper. The hand guard is solid as a rock. I put a SRC BCG with the DLC coating, and a radian raptor charging handle in it. Gives is champagne taste! I have named it "Top Brass" because it won't feed steel case ammo. Rofl. But shoots tight groups and runs great with brass. I'm a BCM fan!

    The Dopest Dope I’ve ever smoked

    I’ve shot a lot of rifles in my life, but man. Flannel Daddy was right to recommend BCM. I sat and watched for months as each prospective BCM upper i considered went and got sold out while I hesitated. My advice, is don’t hesitate. Buy it now, you won’t regret it.

    Best upper hands down

    So this is my third BCM upper and I have a keno 12.5”, match steel 18” and now this 14.5”. I have a stamped lower and if you’re looking for the best all around rifle configuration this is it. MOA groups at 100yd and short enough for vehicle work.

    Gets the job done

    Solid quality, as is to be expected. Probably one of the lightest full length metal handguards on the market. The gun outshoots me, that's for sure, and reliability is a non issue.

    Quality upper, worth every penny

    For the money the best quality upper you can buy. Tolerances are tight, gas block is precisely staked and aligned, and the hand guard and barrel nut are torqued to spec. Easily holds <1 MOA if you do your part and use decent ammo.

    14.5 MCMR

    I love this thing. 14.5" is the perfect length and weight for a great BCM AR set up. You can't go wrong with this upper. It's no wonder they're always sold out!

    Terrific product

    I definitely did my research and settled on Bcm for a complete build. I made the right decision this rifle is beyond words. I am more than happy with it. Runs and runs and runs, very easy pointing rifle. Recoil is almost non existent in my opinion and the lightweight with the gas system is a dream. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a great rifle.

    Absolutely on point. Shoots great, really excited about the narrow profile on the handguard. Awesome product that shipped unbelievably quickly given the current climate in the industry. BRAVO!
