Bravo Company USA Introduces New 300Blackout Lineup

Posted on November 20th, 2015 by ar15news

BCM is proud to introduce its new line of:

BCM 300BLK 3

With multiple phases of field testing by instructors from the BCMGunfighter™ Program and subsequent revisions/optimizations made by the engineering team at BCM®, BCM is proud to announce a line of KMR-Alpha sleeved 300 Blackout carbines in Recce 16, CQB and pistol configurations. An extension of our MIL-SPEC quality 5.56 carbines, the BCM 300 Blackout line was developed to provide an extremely effective self-defense platform in a compact package.

BCM 300BLK 3

BCM 300 Blackout carbines use the exact same components, down to the magazines, as the rest of our carbine fleet with the exception of the barrels. This also means an end user can utilize both their existing magazines and AR accessories to fine tune the feel of their carbine, same as any other M4 or Recce rifle.

BCM 300BLK 3

Despite the additional capability, BCM 300 Blackout carbines still shoot flat. The additional recoil impulse is significantly mitigated by the BCM Mod 1 7.62/300 Blackout Compensator and with proper technique, it can be run as smooth as any 5.56 carbine.

NEW!! BCM KMR-Alpha Rail

Posted on October 20th, 2015 by ar15news

Bravo Company USA has just announced their new BCM KMR-Alpha rail is now shipping. Although the appearance is unchanged, the new KMR-Alpha is made from an Aircraft Grade Aluminum alloy vs the Magnesium alloy the current KMR is made of. Take a minute to read about the new KMR-Alpha rail and check out the pictures below.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 1

Shipping Now !

The definitive modular combat rail is now also available in an Aircraft Grade Aluminum alloy. With seven mounting surfaces, the KMR-Alpha is a modular handguard that uses the KeyMod system to attach accessories such as lights, lasers, vertical grips, handstops and more.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 1

Utilizing the same patented (US 8904691) free float barrel nut lock up, the KMR-Alpha uses the identical mounting hardware as the original KMR. This new addition to the KMR family only weighs 6 ounces plus 2.2 ounces for barrel nut and hardware (Note: KMR-A10).

Each KMR-Alpha includes a BCM® KeyMod QD Sling Mount and is available in 15″, 13″ and 10″ as well as 9″, 8″ and 7″ sizes.

KeyMod is the industry standard for a repeat zero modular system. KeyMod mates the handguard and the accessory with a chamfered interface that self-aligns for consistent, repeatable mounting. This self-aligning interface is the same basis for the Picatinny 1913 rail system proven in combat by the US Military since 9/11.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 2

The KMR uses a patented lock up system where self-locking cross bolts apply force at the 12:00 position of the handguard equally distributing force around the surface area of the rail. This also insures continuous top center alignment of the rail and mitigates forwards/backwards movement of the handguard when the weapon system is fired.

BCM KMR-Alpha Rail 1

Special Introductory SALE Pricing !

KMR-A15, $199.95

KMR-A13, $189.95

KMR-A10, $179.95

KMR-A9, $176.95

KMR-A8, $171.95

KMR-A7, $171.95

And ALL KMR-A Handguards include a FREE BCM KeyMod Sling Mount! (a $20 retail value!)

PWS / Seekins Hybrid Rifle Build Details

Posted on October 12th, 2015 by ar15news

Over the years I have built a bunch of ARs. Some are not that special to me but others I have really grown to love and will be ones I will hand down to my kids as they grow up. Most of my rifles are pretty “Frankenstein’ish” So I wanted to start sharing a little bit about those special ARs. Nothing too in-depth. Just easy reading with some parts listed and a nice photo. 

One such rifle is one of the first ones I would probably think of when it comes to grabbing a rifle in a SHTF situation. My PWS / Seekins Precision hybrid which I’ve had for about 4 years now has morphed into a rifle I could never see myself getting rid of. 

AR15NEWS Seekins  AR15NEWS Seekins Precision PWS Primary Weapons Systems MK114larPrecision PWS Primary Weapons Systems MK114 largeClick To Enlarge

The Seekins Precision SP223 billet lower receiver was the first part of this build that I owned. At first I wasn’t sure about the looks of the SP223 but it quickly grew on me and I had to have one. With the addition of a Wilson Combat TTU-3G trigger, Battle Arms BAD-CASS-SA-ST (Combat Ambi Safety Selector – Semi Auto – Short Throw) ambi safety, a Magpul MOE+ grip, Fortis QD End Plate and B5 Systems SOPMOD Bravo stock this lower feels complete.

The upper I can not take as much credit for its awesomeness as I did not build it. It is a Primary Weapons Systems MK114 complete upper. The MK114 consists of a 14.5″ .223 Wylde QPQ barrel, pinned FSC556 comp, PWS Long-Stroke Piston System, PWS 13″ KeyMod rail, PWS Forged Upper and a BCM Gunfighter Charging Handle. 

I added to this upper a set of Magpul MBUS GenII backup sights, an Aimpoint PRO, RailScales KeyMod covers, a Zero Bravo Inc KeyMod RHS (Reversible Hand Stop) and a SureFire X300U with SR07 tape switch.

Why is this one of my favorites? Not only is it a pretty sexy looking rifle but it is an extremely reliable and solid rifle. I’ve put it up against some of my 18″ SPR type rifles and with exception of my .5″ group tack driver it shoots as good if not better than the rest. Its not a cheap setup by any means but it is definitely one I would grab in a heart beat and not have any reservation as to whether or not it could get the job done when called upon. 

Arisaka Defense Releases Inline & Offset Picatinny Mount

Posted on September 25th, 2015 by ar15news

Arisaka Defense always puts out high quality products. I personally use a bunch of their products from Light Mounts to complete Flashlight Builds. Just this morning I received the following press release for their Inline and Offset Picatinny Mount. As you all know, KeyMod and M-LOK rails are great but what do you do with all of your lights, lasers, grips, etc. that only mount to Picatinny rail sections? You need an adapter like the ones Arisaka just released to make them compatible. What I really like about these mounts is that they are adjustable from side to side to allow a wider range of lights and accessories to fit and the KeyMod mounts incorporate the new patent pending Inverted KeyMod Screws from BCM instead of the normal. Take a look at the press release and pics below for these great mounts.

Press Release:  Arisaka Inline & Offset Picatinny Mounts Released

Arisaka is pleased to release our new Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts. The Inline version is available for KeyMod and M-Lok, while the Offset version is available for KeyMod, M-Lok, and the Centurion Arms CMR. Both KeyMod mounts utilize Bravo Company’s Patent Pending Inverted KeyMod Screws.

Arisaka Defense Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts 1

The Inline Picatinny Mount is designed for rail systems that feature 45 degree attachment interfaces, like the BCM KMR, Geissele SMR MK4 and MK8, Mega Arms MKM/MML/Wedge Lock, and Midwest Industries Generation 3 handguards. The height and adjustable side-to-side spacing place Picatinny based lights like the Surefire X300 and Inforce WML close to the handguard and within easy reach at the 1:30 or 10:30 clock positions.

The Offset Picatinny Mount is a combination of our Offset Scout Mount and a short Picatinny rail section, and is designed for rail systems that do not have 45 degree attachment interfaces like the Noveske NSR, Midwest Industries Generation 2, and SLR Rifleworks Solo Series handguards. Like the inline version, the mount places Picatinny based lights at the optimal 1:30 or 10:30 clock positions. The mount allows the user to adjust the lateral positioning of the Picatinny rail section for additional clearance next to front sights or other accessories.

NEW!! BCM­ KeyMod Rail Covers Are In and They Are Awesome

Posted on July 22nd, 2015 by ar15news

If you’ve been active on social medial lately you’ve probably seen some sneak peeks at the new BCM (Bravo Company Mfg) super low profile KeyMod rail covers. For those of you who have been anxiously waiting to get some for yourself, the wait is now over. The new BCM­ KeyMod Rail Panels are now available in a kit that consists of five 5.5 inch long covers that will fit any KeyMod rail. I got my hands on a few of them and immediately put them on my BCM 16″ ELW upper with a BCM KMR 13″ rail.

BCM KeyMod Rail Panel Kit 1

Each BCM KeyMod Rail Panel will cover 7 KeyMod slots but can be cut to any shorter length to fit in shorter runs if needed. For instance, on my BCM upper I have their KAG (Kinesthetic Angled Grip) installed and have 4 KeyMod slots open in front of it. I only needed a short piece to cover where my index and middle fingers contact the rail so I grabbed my super sharp stabby thing from Matt Helm Knives and cut a two slot section to go there and the remaining 5 slots were installed on the side behind my BCM KeyMod 1913 Light Mount.

BCM KeyMod Rail Panel Kit 2

BCM KeyMod Rail Panel Kit 2

The BCM KeyMod Rail Panels are more than just a cool looking rail cover for open KeyMod slots. They offer an extreme increase in grip due to the aggressive texture. The texture on the covers actually reminds me a lot of grip tape but doesn’t feel like it will tear your hands up. If you look close you can see the BCM and Star logo on the cover.

BCM KeyMod Rail Panel Kit 2

BCM KeyMod Rail Panel Kit 2

The BCM 16″ ELW upper with the 13″ KMR is a super light weight, durable and accurate upper. Adding the new rail covers is a small add-on but an enhancement none the less. I will be adding more of the BCM­ KeyMod Rail Panels to my other KeyMod rails and you can too. BCM currently has the black covers in-stock for just $9.95 per 5 panel kit. Soon they will be offering FDE, OD Green and Foliage as well. Head on over to to order some for yourself.
