Professional Grade Weaponry, by BCM®
Made by Bravo Company MFG, Inc. (BCM®) These Barreled Upper Receiver Groups are designed for shooting professionals 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 (USGI)
M4 Feed Ramp Flat Top 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 uppers 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 and private security personal for its’ superior ballistics.
Mil-Spec 11595E - Barrel Steel
BCM barrel steel is Mil-Spec per MIL-B-11595E. 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. The 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 on the USGI M16/M4 rifles 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 ammo.
Mil-Spec F-Marked Forged Front Sight Bases
Mil-Spec for rifles issued to the troops require taller front sight bases on all flat top AR rifles. Many commercial offerings use M16A2 height front sight bases on all of their barrels regardless of what type of upper it is installed on. As a result, owners of rifles and carbines with the flat top receiver configuration can have problems getting a proper 'zero' for elevation with Mil-Spec back up iron sights. As all of the BCM uppers are built for flat top uppers, all have the proper Mil-Spec F marked front sight base to insure the correct height for iron sight zeroing when using military iron sights. Mil-Spec taper pins secure the forged front sight base with the sling swivel secured by tubular rivets.
Government Barrel Profiles
Duty rifles are built to be carried - day in and day out. The USGI barrel profiles (often referred to as the Government Profile) enable the operator to carry their weapon for longer periods of time and deploy them faster than the heavier commercial H-Barrel counterparts. The government profile barrel is also compatible with the current M203 mounting systems.
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.

beyond impressed February 8, 2016
Reviewer: Jonathan Richardson from Newark, OH United States  
I bought this upper to replace and old upper on my carbine.   Not even a hour ago I took the bcm upper on my old trusty lower and ran 800 rounds of mixed ammo threw it. It feed everything I even used some mags I wasn't sure of not one problem . I'm going to say this bcm is the perfect example of perfection.  They have my business for life

Definate Quality February 8, 2016
Reviewer: Anonymous Person  
I bought a 16 mid length from BCM for a custom build and I've got to say I'm extremely impressed. I've put almost 2,000 rounds including some of the worst ammo I've ever seen (reloads I got from a friend with brass that has been reloaded many times) with absolutely no error due to the weapon. Granted one case literally blew in half and one half was stuck in the chamber (this was clearly not the weapons fault as over half the cases were cracked after they were fired), but it cleared easily (ruined a good xm855 though), and has eaten anything I've thrown at it. It even ate roughly 500 rnds of Tulammo without a hitch. After all that, it's still a sub moa shooter with 68gr black hills ammo. If I swear by BCM even over Colt and would bet my life on the upper I bought from them

Outstanding! February 1, 2016
Reviewer: Russ Hamilton from Scottsdale, AZ United States  
The fit and finish is impeccable and its quality is legendary (it's as good as a Colt M4 style carbine I own). I ordered the upper with the optional BCM BCG and charging handle, which is an M16 style BCG - very nice!. A friend who works for Scottsdale PD told me they use BCM barrels/uppers on their special weapons builds. I mated the complete upper to a US Autoweapons "Special Forces M4" (semi-auto) complete lower made here in Scottsdale, AZ that I picked up in the past. It was a perfect, snug fit with absolutely no rattle. Added a Troy quad rail handguard and folding rear sight. I received the upper in a couple days and  I couldn't be happier with price and quality! Just need some handguard covers, a Surefire light and an Aimpoint M4 red dot system and I'll be done with this one! Bottom line: I spoke to a lot of experienced builders/gunsmiths before making this upper purchase and while a couple other brands were mentioned, BCM was recommended the most hands down!

Excellent Quality Fit and Finish February 1, 2016
Reviewer: Richard Smith  
Shipped allot faster than expected, can't wait to take it to the range. I wish there were an option to add OEM mid length handguards because middys are a little more difficult to just stumble across for a low price as compared to rifle and carbine length handguards. Ordered mid length handguards from Cav Arms but until they arrive my upper receiver will remain naked.
