Joint Force Enterprises has teamed up with BCM and the guys at Black Powder Red Earth to build one really sweet rifle that they are calling the Cold Harbor Special Projects Group “SOPMOD” carbine. Most of the time when you buy a rifle you look at it and think of all things you need to upgrade. Aside from adding an Optic and a Battle Arms Development Ambi Safety, this rifle is EXACTLY how I would want it. It has Knights Armament folding micro BUIS, BCM KMR 13″ rail, Geissele Super Dynamic Combat Trigger, B5 Systems stock and a ton more. Not to mention the duotone Cerakote job the JFE did looks amazing. Check out all of the pics and details below. Purchasing details listed at

Coming Soon!! BCM KeyMod Vertical Grip Short

Posted on April 28th, 2014 by ar15news

Everyone’s been asking…”When will some one just come out with a KeyMod Vertical Grip?”. BCM (Bravo Company Manufacturing) is obviously listening and will be introducing their new KeyMod Vertical Grip Short soon. I happen to follow Larry Vickers, one of the coolest of “Cool Guys”, on Facebook and he shared a few pictures of his pre-production models of the new BCM KeyMod Stubby Vertical Grip and they look great. What’s even cooler is how easy they are to install. Unlike most KeyMod accessories, there are no tools needed to tighten the to the rail. Just simply slide it on the rail and twist the grip until its tight and let it lock into place (see video below). It has the same forward angle and is reversible like their standard grip.

I did notice they are listed on the BCM website already so they can’t be too far away from releasing them. Looks like they plan on retailing them for around $40 a pop. Head on over to and click on the email notification link to be notified when these grips are in-stock.

NEW!! JFE Custom MultiCam BCM 14.5″ Carbine

Posted on March 28th, 2014 by ar15news

Joint Force Enterprises has for quite a while now been known for their awesome weapon coatings. JFE has partnered up with numerous firearms manufacturers over the years, including coating all of the BCM Jack Carbines for HSP, but had never offered any complete firearms for sale themselves. That is until now. JFE recently teamed up with BCM (Bravo Company Manufacturing), B5 Systems, Black Widow Armament and Magpul to offer a really sweet looking rifle that should shoot as awesome as it looks. They just started the pre-order on these rifles which I expect to sell very fast. Check out the pics and details below.

NEW!! BCM KMR KeyMod Handguard – Now Available

Posted on March 4th, 2014 by ar15news

We’ve posted about the awesome new BCM (Bravo Company Manufacturing) KMR KeyMod handguard in the past and I know a lot of you have been waiting patiently for them to become available for purchase. Aside from the given quality you’ve come to expect from BCM, one of the things I really like about this rail is that it offers KeyMod slots at all of the 45 degree angles too not just at 3, 6 and 9 o’clock. Today our friends over at Soldier Systems Daily helped launch the release of the KMR for purchase as a standalone product for BCM and we figured we’d help spread the word.

They released both a 10″ and 13″ length today. I’m sure many of you are already thinking you want a different length than just 10″ or 13″ which is to be expected. I’ve not heard whether or not they will offer additional lengths but I would be willing to be their will be as production continues. Take a look at the awesome pictures below that feature some awesome KeyMod components from Impact Weapons Components as well as some of our favorite lights from INFORCE

620 BCM KMR KeyMod Rail 5

The Bravo Company Manufacturing KMR (KeyMod Rail)

Manufactured from an exclusive blended aluminum and magnesium alloy, it weighs 30-40% less than aluminum with the same strength properties. Also featuring a proprietary patent pending mounting, indexing and lock up system that mitigates 12:00 rail movement under heat generated from the barrel nut.

Handguard alone weighs 4.1oz for 10″ and 5.5oz for 13″!

Mounting hardware weighs only 2.2oz, for a total of 6.3oz and 7.7oz respectively.

The KMR’s propriety finish was originally developed for the Aerospace industry. It is a plasma deposition process which creates a stabilized ceramic-like surface coating with superior wear and scratch resistance when compared to anodize or even hard chrome. The stabilized nature of the coating means it has a higher corrosion resistance as well, due to the lack of ‘pores’ in the surface.

The KeyMod™ interface system was developed by Eric Kincel (now the Director of BCMs’ product development team) to work in parallel with the current picatinny system. In many applications it will advance modularity past the current 1913 rail system.

The BCM KMR also allows for a larger range of modularity offering 4 different offset mounting positions between traditional 3,6,9, and 12:00 positions.

In the most basic of applications the KeyMod™ system allows for universal modularity between various manufacturers of accessories, and accessory rails. A big win for the trigger puller. As the industry advances the modular accessories will mount directly to the KeyMod™ instead of picatinny, allowing for a lighter, cleaner, and less bulky weapon system.

NEW!! BMC GUNFIGHTER Vertical Grip – Short

Posted on October 29th, 2013 by ar15news

BCM (Bravo Company Manufacturing) has just recently released their new BCM GUNFIGHTER Vertical Grip in the Short configuration. I’ve had the opportunity to mess around with one for the last couple of weeks now and I really like it. Its my first experience using any of the BCM grips which now has me questioning some of my past purchases. As you can see in the pictures below the grip features a slight angle which you can face forward or backwards depending on how you like the feel. It also features a decent size storage compartment for storing your Tactical Skittles in. Another feature I like was the spring loaded clamp that can be easily removed and put on the other side depending on your preference. Overall, this thing was built right. It feels extremely solid and is worth every penny. Right now they are in-stock at

The picture below shows my current setup with it right now. I put part of a Magpul Handstop kit around it and my index finger sits just in front of the finger groove. I don’t grab the VFG like a broom stick. I tuck my hand right into the angle so my pinky and ring finger are on the vfg, my middle and index finger are on the rail and thumb is on top of the rail. The index finger fits right in front of the bump and feels nice. Not a perfect color match but who cares.

SNEAK PEEK!! Bravo Company Manufacturing (BCM) KeyMod Rail

Posted on August 28th, 2013 by ar15news

Let me first say that I honestly have ZERO information regarding this product. I just happened to run across these pics and wanted to share them with you since it seems everyone is asking about them. The one and only Pat Rogers of E.A.G. Tactical has been evaluating this new BCM KeyMod rail and shared these pics on Facebook. Even he said he has no idea when these would be available.

We (or at least I) first learned of this rail when Travis Haley showed a short snip-it of it in a video for the new HSP KeyMod light mounts a month or so ago. The fact that they are not only doing 3, 6 and 9 o’clock KeyMod slots but are also doing the 45 degrees as well is awesome. Definitely excited to see these come to market and see what lengths they come out with. For now, all we can do is look at the images below. Click on them to view a larger image in a new window.

If you’ve been looking for a deal on one of these, plug in the code “AR15NEWS” at checkout to save an additional 5% off these prices. No expiration date on the code or pricing.

BCM Gunfighter CH 620


Weapon Outfitters always seems to come up with the best combo deals. Right now they are running a “Trigger and Charging Handle” promo for Father’s Day. Take your pick from a bunch of Geissele triggers and eithe a BCM or Rainier Arms Charging Handle. No codes to remember on this one. Just head on over to Weapon Outfitters and save 10% when you purchase a new Trigger and CH at the following link.

Weapon Outfitters Fathers Day Sale 2013

“Triggers and Charging Handles are two of the most important input devices on a rifle, and it took the market decades to figure out how to do it right. Enjoy the fruits of their labor with our Father’s Day special!

Previous “tac latches” would strain the roll pin and fail (done it myself a few times) and previous triggers would fail with a heavy firing schedule.

BCM and Rainier Arms ambi charging handles are ergonomic, durable, and spoil you. All the engineering and ergonomic issues of the standard and upgraded charging handles of years past… SOLVED.

Geissele’s triggers which are cryo treated and EDM wire cut last forever. My SSA with a scratched on serial from 2008 feels as good as the day i first got it… and feels as good as the newest batches from Geissele today.”

NEW!! BCM Gunfighter Ambi Charging Handle

Posted on January 6th, 2013 by ar15news

This new product from BCM came as a surprise to me but I guess it really shouldn’t have.  The BCM Gunfighter charging handle was a game changer when it was introduced a few years back and is one of the most popular and bomb proof charging handles on the market today.  It only makes sense that they would also add an ambidextrous model to the lineup.  The execution looks great and if the standard Gunfighter CH is any indication I’m sure this will be another great option when it comes to ambi charging handles.  And don’t think just because you’re a right handed shooter that you don’t need any of the “ambi” accessories for your AR-15.  Having ambi controls allows you to train with your off hand for shooting from behind cover or if your strong side arm is injured, etc.  It just makes good sense.  These will be shipping in the next few weeks but you can secure yours now over at
