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.

    The best uppers you can buy

    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

    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

    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!

    Solid quality and excellent service

    Purchased this upper for a spikes lower build. Fit was tight paired with a Bravo Buffer, a Gunfighter Stock and QD End Plate. Also used BCM BCG and BCM Medium Charging Handle. Also added BCM vertical grip.

    Used a CMC flat drop in trigger and MOE grip.

    I have run about 550 rounds of Federal .223 bulk in the last few weeks without batting an eye. Gun is MOA/Sub MOA at 50/100 yards from prone position or using a rest.

    Standing/moving I can shoot 1'5 - 2" groups. I took this out the other day and set up my IDPA target at 100 yards. I put about 300 rounds at it. Most were controlled not rapid, but I got a few rapid bursts and could count my misses for the day on my fingers.

    I have absolutely no complaints. Not to mention, BCM loads the box with goodies.

    High Quality, Low Cost

    I have always heard great things about BravoCompany and they did not disappoint. The rail is very light weight and the barrel is very good quality. It performs flawlessly and can really take a beating.

    I can't say enough great things about this upper! The appearance, fit and finish are superb. I ordered mine with the PWS 556 FSC comp permanently installed. I did some research and this comp is highly rated to reduce recoil and muzzle jump compared to the others. I didn't select the BCG option as I had a new Fail Zero NiB BCG for it. I did order the CH and noticed it has a better fit than my other non-BCM CH's (so I may be buying some more CH's). Everytime I buy a BCM product it makes it hard to buy anything else. Our local SWAT team uses BCM products and that's how I found out about BCM years ago. Most importantly, this thing is a DREAM to shoot - no recoil is noticeable (seriously - none), which allows for super fast recovery. I highly suggest adding the PWS 556 FSC comp! You won't regret it! I also added BCM's keymod rail covers that snap in - no more burnt hands, you get a very nice grip and they are excellent quality! Thanks for all the swag BCM, nice touch!
