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 Tier Equipment, Reasonable Prices

    Posted by Billy on Jul 5th 2020

    This is the second BCM upper I’ve owned. My 16” has always been deadnuts accurate and %100 reliable. Zero failures thru thousands of rounds. My friends comment on how light it is. This 14.5” is completely identical, but 2” shorter. I have a 2-7” scope on my 16” and am putting a red dot on this one for home defense and short range plinking.

    My only complaint is that BCM gave me a grey hat with my first upper and now that hat is pretty worn-out and I didn’t get one with this one. I would hat3 to be wearing a Daniel Defense hat and people get confused about which brand I’m repping. First world problems.

    Fake complaint aside. BCM is by far the best AR on the market when price is considered. Removing price as a factor; the only peers are Daniel Defense and Noveske which cost much more.

    I don’t think I’ll ever buy any AR components that BCM makes from another company. Reasonable price for top tier equipment.

    Quality, Fit and Finish

    Posted by Bradley on Jun 24th 2020

    Received my upper quickly and without any hiccups, and customer service was polite and understanding when I inquired about possible lead times. When I received my upper, the fit and finish was beyond reproach, and the parts used are on par with any of the "Gucci" manufacturers like Triarc, LMT, and Daniel Defense. Incredible craftsmanship, excellent customer service, fast and efficient shipping, all on a budget anyone should be able to afford. BCM will absolutely be receiving my patronage for many years to come.

    Can’t be beat

    Posted by Brady on Jun 4th 2019

    This is my second bcm complete upper with the kmr alpha rail. Had to get the bolt, mod 4 charging handle and surefire brake. Fit and finish is perfect and just what you would expect from bcm. After owning 5 ar’s and two of them being bcm’s I honestly will not buy anything else. So much bang for your buck and all the swag in the box is a nice plus. Bcm costumer for life!

    The best uppers you can buy

    Posted by M. O'Neill on Apr 10th 2019

    These uppers are amazing. I never just order one. Accurate, reliable and tested, this upper will function every time. If your gun doesn’t go “boom”, check your lower or Ammo because it was not the uppers fault.

    BCM 14.5 Upper

    Posted by Kevin on Apr 10th 2019

    I placed my order and was told it would take 2-4 days to ship because of the pinned muzzle device on my 14.5 upper plus shipping time. Shortly after placing my order I received a email asking for a copy of my drivers license and a completed purchase authorization form since I was a first time customer. I was concerned this might delay my order. My upper shipped the next day and I received it three days after placing my order which I was very happy about since I was anxious to assemble and shoot my new gun. When I received my package I was baffled by the fact that the box included multiple free posters, stickers, a hat, calendar, and keymod rail section. The build quality is flawless. This is my fourth AR and my first time dealing with BCM. I will be a customer for life! The entire process from ordering to assembling my upper and lower literally couldn't have been easier.

    Great Upper

    Posted by Jacob Rohrer on Apr 10th 2019

    I love this upper!! Perfect size and fit with the lower I purchased. They pinned and welded the surefire brake so I could mount my suppressor right out of the box. Highly recommend!
