BCM® AR15 Enhanced Lower Parts Kit

Posted on January 8th, 2016 by ar15news

If you’re an AR builder like most of us are, you’ve undoubtedly wasted money on a junk LPK at least once. Some times its hard to pass them up when you see how cheap they are but you inevitably regret it when you install the parts and see that the mag catch isn’t the right shape, takedown and pivot pins are rough or sized wrong, triggers crap, etc. There are really only a few high quality complete Lower Parts Kit options out there and thanks to Bravo Company USA we now have one more option to add to the list. People have been asking for a BCM LPK for a long time. Now that BCM has its own Fire Control Group (introduced last month), the time has come for complete BCM LPKs.

BCM didn’t just take one of those junk LPKs and add in a nice trigger. As with everything BCM does, there were no corners cut using all USA made components and only the best materials. These LPKs will not only be available as a standalone product but will also now be included in all BCM complete lowers and rifles at no additional charge.

MIL-SPEC QUALITY, MADE ENTIRELY IN THE USA

BCM® now offers a complete lower parts kit for AR15 rifles, made entirely in the USA from components built from Mil-Spec AISI8620 investment castings, AISI8620 bar stock and using 17-7PH stainless steel springs as well as advanced manufacturing methods to insure longevity under hard use.

BCM Enhanced LPK Lower Parts Kit 4

BCMGUNFIGHTER™ UPGRADES INCLUDED

– BCM® PNT™ Trigger Assembly
– BCM Mod 3 Pistol Grip
– Enhanced Polymer Trigger Guard

The BCM Lower Parts Kit is built from 100% parts machined to Mil-Spec standards with all polymer components are available in Black, FDE, Foliage Green and Wolf Grey.

RESPONSIBILITY, ETHICS, QUALITY

VALUES BEYOND VALUE

Today, the commercial market is flooded with a mash up of inferior imported OEM parts with sloppy dimensions, hardness, finishes, and cheaper alloys. BCM will again, set the standard for quality American made components, that offer a long service life for those that may find themselves in harms’ way.

The BCM LPK is definitely a welcomed new product and at just $99.95 including their new PNT trigger group, the value is definitely there. I’ve paid that much for quality LPKs such as Daniel Defense, etc but that was without the upgraded trigger that BCM includes. These LPKs are currently shipping to dealers all over the country.

BCMGUNFIGHTER™ PNT (Polished, Nickel, Teflon) Trigger Assembly

Posted on December 23rd, 2015 by ar15news

If you’re late buying a Christmas present for the gun lover in your life, snag one of BCM’s affordable new PNT (Polished Nickel Teflon) trigger assemblies. BCM’s known for their attention to detail and quality so this trigger should be nothing short of awesome. Details and link are listed below. 

Today we are officially announcing the release of the of the  BCMGUNFIGHTER™ PNT (Polished, Nickel, Teflon) Trigger Assembly (AR-15).

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

BCM quality, modern manufacturing processes, and aerospace coatings are combined to ensure parts last a lifetime while performing far beyond requirements established nearly six decades ago.

The BCM PNT™ Trigger and PNT™ Hammer are a precision machined Mil-Spec AISI8620 investment casting per the USGI TDP (Mil-Spec) for M16/M4 family of weapons. (not to be confused with MIM parts that are very common in the commercial market). 156/157 holes are honed to assist in perfect alignment and a smooth trigger pull.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

After that, the BCM PNT™ Trigger and PNT™ Hammer then goes through a 3 step heat treat and case hardening process for optimal grain structure alignment, yielding a stronger and more wear resistance product.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

Polished
The sear engagement surfaces are ground, but then hand polished for an increased smoothness and reduction in friction up to 300% beyond the Mil-Spec.

Nickel
An electroless nickel finish is applied for a smoother trigger pull with less ‘grit’ and reduced felt ‘creep’. Nickel also provides a long lasting finish that will not corrode, rust, or discolor due to oxidation.

Teflon
Teflon particles are embedded in the nickel, further reducing the friction of the interface and ensuring a long lasting coating. This is done on both the BCM PNT Trigger and Hammer in order to provide the maximum benefit allowed by the nickel coating, by augmenting the low friction and corrosion resistance.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

This assembly includes our impact resistant trigger and hammer pins. They are centerless ground to a fine finish and superior tolerances to ensure compatibility with all MIL SPEC lower receivers built per the USGI TDP.

The BCM Disconnector is stamped from a 1070 material and fine blanked for cleaner edges, double disc ground to precise size. All hammer engagement surfaces are also ground for a super clean reset.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

The processes and tolerances are matched in the BCM PNT™ Trigger Assembly to create a system better than the sum of its parts.

BCM PNT Trigger Assembly 1

As with all BCM rifle and accessory products, Made in the USA.

MSRP is $65.00

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

300 BLACKOUT
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

COMMONALITY OF PARTS
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

PERFORMANCE AND HANDLING
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.

CARBINE
–  RECCE-16 KMR

AR PISTOL
–  RECCE-9 KMR
–  RECCE-13 KMR

NFA SBR

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!)

The new KMR-Alpha rail from Bravo Company USA is available for purchase now at www.BravoCompanyMfg.com.

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 LOWER
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
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.

Arisaka Defense Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts 1

Arisaka Defense Inline and Offset Picatinny Mounts 1

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.
