This was my 2nd AR build project and I decided to go with this upper because you get a free bolt carrier group, plus Bravo Company pinned and welded the flash suppressor for me saving me the hassle of finding a local shop to do it. I placed my order on Sunday night, and today (Wednesday) I received it. The shipping dept. did not skimp on bubble wrap and packing materials and upon inspection the upper looks perfect and was coated in a very light oil. I was surprised to find a very nice BC USA baseball hat. It wasn't a cheap hat either, very nice quality. I also found some BCM stickers and a cardboard tube filled with 5 awesome posters. I didn't measure them but they are probably 18x24 inches. If you have been on the fence on whether or not to order, for the love of toast do it now. I highly doubt you will be disappointed. Even with out the free BCG and the free hat the product and customer service is top notch. Thank You So Much Bravo Company!!!
Holy Crap. Believe every word of it. Paul is not lying. This thing shoots super smooth. I shot it back-to-back with my buddy's 14.5" BCM carbine (M4) upper. His shot great...but mine was so soft and moved so little, he said it shoots "like a video game." He has three tours in Iraq as an Air Cav scout....he would know. Just ante-up and get the FSC556 perm attached...it's worth every penny. This thing shoots flat and SOFT. Makes every other 14.5" upper irrelevant (except a KAC SR15). Price is great and performance is great as well. On top of that, the shipping was super fast and the upper arrived in mint (yet test fired) condition. I could not be happier. Buy with confidence.
When I received the upper, I noticed right away that the fit and finish were perfect. I added my accessories and headed to the range. It did not matter what ammo I put in the mag, the upper ran flawlessly. The accuracy and performance surpassed the expectations that I have of BCM products I already own. I am already planning my next upper purchase from BCM.
After my experience with the BCM BCG and charging handle I decided to try a full upper. The quality is top notch. The finish is great and the anodizing is perfect. I'm only 4000 or so rounds into this one but it shoots soft and eats all the ammo I've thrown at it. It's easily my favorite rifle.
FYI - for those of you who live in the non free states that still have an AWB, this upper comes with a bayonet lug.
Other than that, BCM is good to go.
Insanely fast shipping that even exceeded the projection from BCM. Upper was flawless in assembly, and the PWS FSC556 was pinned and welded perfectly. Haven't been able to fire it yet, mostly because I projected some wait time from BCM, and my daggone charging handle is not here yet from a different supplier!
I have had my upper for almost a year, 4,000 rounds of STEEL TULA ammo and not one malfunction, i have only cleaned this rifle maybe 3 times. And when i say cleaned i mean wiped down the BCG with CLP and run a boresnake down the barrel, no scrubbing or chamber brushes. I also ordered the BCM BCG and Mod 4 gunfighter (which is now standard on all of my rifles) along with a Daniel Defense Omega Rail. Runs like a dream, took less then a week to ship to my house even with the welded A2X. Thanks BCM!
First of all, the shipping was fast. I ordered it on a Wensday morning, they welded the A2-x and shipped it that day. It arrived the following monday. It was well packaged and came very oiled and even had a few extras in the box (bcm ball cap, posters, etc.). Upon initial inspection it was clear that bcm builds very high quality rifles. The M-4 feed ramps were the best I have seen. The weld on the flash hider is easy to find but does not stand out in an ugly way. I slapped on a carry handle and a lower (carbine buffer) and off to the range I went. 150 rounds with zero problems (pmc .223 and a bunch of .556 stuff) Groups were good. I plan on replacing more of this rifle with bcm stuff and cannot see ever buying an upper from anywhere else.
I ordered my barreled reciever on a Thursday. Friday morning before 8AM I was contacted to verify my shipping address. Monday morning when I got to work the package was waiting for me. I even ordered a pinned and welded flash hider. Outstanding service! Then I assmbled the upper on a fresh Rock River lower that I built. The fit was perfect! If you are thinking of buying an upper but are on the fence; just DO IT! You will not regret it. I have heard nothing but good things about BCM and now I can tell you from my own experiance that it is true. BCM is a first class firearms company!
