About the BCM® Standard 16" Mid Length ELWF Complete Upper Receiver w/ KMR-A15 Handguard

All BCM® Upper Receiver Groups with a KMR-A Handguard Include:

  • One 3" Picatinny Rail Section
  • One BCM KeyMod 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.

    Lightweight upper with MR Handguard

    This is my first BCM upper and I am extremely impressed with the design, fit and finish. I had heard great things about Bravo Company products, but now I understand what all the cheering was about.

    BCM = Quality!

    I took this upper, which is attached to my Colt lower out to the range yesterday to zero it in...unbelievable results! We zeroed it in at 50 yards because most of our 3 gun at my club is 50 yards or less. I had a Lucud red dot mounted on top and the groups were within 5/16" to 3/8" of an inch. This upper is a tack driver! Couldn't be happier, worth every penny. If you're thinking about buying a BCM, do it, you won't be sorry. And if you are buying an upper, don't think about using a BCG or charging handle from a "bargin price AR", go full BCM and get what belongs in this upper. Comparing BCM to AR's in the $600 range is like comparing a Rolls Royce to a Ford Pinto... Follow the old adage: "Buy once, cry once". Truer words have never been spoken.

    First rate upper

    I wanted a solid, top rated upper to match my LMT lower (since I couldn't afford the pricey LMT upper). The BCM was the perfect choice. I love it! It matches perfectly - solid, light weight, ergonomic and so well made and the price is amazing for the quality of the product. Everything clicks just right and the tolerances are so tight it feels like the best of any premium AR receiver I've seen. I love how the bcm charging handle (you HAVE to use a bcm charging handle/bcg or you're giving yourself a disservice) is integrated into the design and function of the upper. All the graphics are nicely integrated into the design as well . And the plastic hand grip strips that I added on are brilliant. The only issues I have is that the black paint easily scratches, and the top rail has rather sharp edges on the sides which sucks since the handguard is generally so very ergo. But for the money, you can't buy a better upper. Love it!

    1st AR

    My friend suggested a BCM upper for 1st AR. So far so good. It feels like I'm playing 3 chord songs on a 59' Gibson Les Paul. Im sure I don't realize how good it is but everyone who shoots it tells me and I believe them

    Complete upper

    What can I say that hasn't been said about BCM? Ordered on 4/10 early morning got a confirmation later that day that my product got shipped. Upon receiving my package everything was packed and wrapped appropriately. Got a few goodies as well. I took it out shooting on Easter out in the desert and had no issues what so ever. I was impressed with how slim and light it was. I just recently adjusted my grip to a "C" clamp grip. So it feels really comfortable with the KMR rail. As far as accuracy I got it dialed in at 50/200 using the jerking the trigger targets. As far as my capabilities I was more than impressed how accurate I was with my rifle. I would recommend this upper to anyone trying slim down a little weight to their AR.
