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. These do not include bolt carrier groups, UNLESS selected from the drop down menu above.

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.

· Muzzle Device Options

This upper group comes features options for your muzzle device. If you select a standard A2 flash hider, it would be for a NFA weapon (Federally registered Short Barreled Rifle. We also offer the option to permanently install (pin and weld) other muzzle devices (listed in the drop down menu above).

We only offer the muzzle options listed.

All permanently installed muzzle devices will bring the overall length of the barrel to a BATFE compliant 16".

If selecting a permanent muzzle device, please allow an ADDITIONAL 2-3 business days to process your order.

· 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 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 world wide 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.

· 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.

BCM 14.5" mid length is the AR15 sweet spot! November 11, 2015
Reviewer: Cameron from Colorado, USA  
This upper and lower arrived quickly and were absolutely flawless! I mean it arrived without a scratch on it, lubed test fired and well packaged.

It is absolutely amazing how this carbine runs, it is nothing like my previous 14.5" carbine length gas guns, it is even softer and smoother than my 16" mid length. It shoulders, balances and moves extremely well. It is lively in the hands and is fast between targets, balanced, light weight and it just feels damn good!

I thought that the 16" mid length gas system was the sweet spot, but the guys at Bravo Company showed me the 14.5" mid length is the sweet spot!

Outstanding product Bravo Company!

Excellent product and even better service April 7, 2012
Reviewer: Mr. Lara from CA United States  
I want to keep this review short and sweet. BCM customer service is phenomenal, and my package arrived in 4 days flat. Everything was packaged up very well (upper assembly, BCG, and BCM med. charging handle) in a light coating of very nice smelling oil.

Build quality is evident right out of the box and is even more evident at the range. Over 1000 rounds of surplus ammo fired without a malfunction.

This was my first purchase from BCM, and definitely will not be my last. Spend a little extra money and go with BCM, you will not be sorry.

Excellent quality, fit, finish and performance. June 30, 2010
Reviewer: MC from USA  
This is a very nice compact, lightweight setup. I did not weigh the upper, but when I pulled it out of the box, I was amazed at how light it was. Mated with my Colt complete lower, it made for a quality platform, the upper also fit perfect on the lower. Function is 100% and the fit and finish of all parts is top notch.

I am using the 14.5 mid length BCM w/ 12" DD Lite upper with the carbine H buffer and standard carbine spring with no issues. It is a soft shooting, but very maneuverable upper with numerous mounting options. Accuracy is also excellent with this upper; all supported bench shots were easily within 1" at 50 yards using only a non-magnified Aimpoint M4

If you are considering a 14.5 vs 16 inch upper, and need maneuverability, go with the 14.5". Even with pinned A2X flash, that small difference in overall length vs a 16" with A2 flash hider is very noticeable when you are deploying the weapon in close quarters.
