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
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.

Another great BCM upper. November 11, 2015
Reviewer: Jr. Baisden from (Great18), CA United States  
Birthday gift for myself last year around the time of BCM's free BCG and comp promotion so this review is about a year overdue. Another great purchase from BCM. Have this upper mated with a Spikes lower, I know blasphemy right. Fit is perfect. Upper is about as heavy as my other BCM upper with a Magpul midlength handguard. Absolutely no complaints.  The AR market is oversaturated, tons of companies some even offering cheaper products than BCM, but over the years I've grown to be a "buy once, cry once" type of guy. BCM products are a sure bet. Thanks again guys, you rock.

BCM November 11, 2015
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Moore, OK United States  
Great looking upper with great fit and finish. Only trouble was, It was far from accurate (best I could get were 3" - 4" groups from the bench).  Tried several different brands and weights but just couldn't get it to group.  Talked to customer service and all I was told was to try more ammo when I had tried 4 different heavy grain brands at least.  Just got a bad barrel I guess because from what I hear my experience is the exception.  Left a bad taste in my mouth so I'll be selling it soon I guess even though I am quite fond of the overall configuration of this package.

Top Shelf June 8, 2013
Reviewer: Christopher Gravat from Huntsville, AL United States  
I purchased this to replace a DD Upper that I regretted selling. It is a worthy replacement to say the least. Accuracy is great and as usual, shipping with BCM is some of the fastest in the biz. Locks up GREAT with my SAA (Surplus Ammo and Arms) Lower. Buy with confidence!

Thoroughly impressed May 28, 2013
Reviewer: Todd Sandridge from Chilton, WI United States  
I've been waiting for 2 years to get one of these uppers, and it was well worth the wait.

I received it 2 days after ordering, and got to sight it in 2 days later. After getting it dialed in at 50 yards, I decided to try and hit my 4" steel at 200 yards using AE 5.56 ammo. I could hit it at will. Which is impressive be cause  not that great of a shooter. This upper made it look like I knew what I was doing.

I will definitely be recommending BCM uppers to my friends who shoot.
