NEW!! BCM Mod 3 Vertical Grips

Posted on November 4th, 2014 by ar15news

The BCM Mod 3 Vertical Grip is the latest evolution of the BCM Short Vertical Grip, offering improved ergonomics and the choice of two popular weapons mounting solutions. BCM Vertical Grip Mod 3s are manufactured from high quality, impact resistant polymers. They come in at only 1.9 ounces, and feature a low-profile length that is intended for increased mobility and minimized snag factor. Aggressively textured flat sides are designed for improved yaw control during weapon manipulation.

BCM® DIRECT MOUNT PICATINNY 1913 INTERFACE SYSTEM

The new Patent Pending BCM® Direct Mount Picatinny 1913 interface system, was developed to be the most rigid, light-weight, and cost effective system available for Vertical Pistol Grips and Hand Stop type accessories. 

Most of the industry relies on a simple screw and backing nut for a mounting system. BCM® has developed a patent pending anchor system that not only secures to the mounting surface, but spreads the energy and force throughout the accessory. Conventional mounting systems can allow for an increased amount of shifting and flexing of the accessory. The BCM® direct mount interface system reduces those issues and offers a more secure lockup, eliminating play in the mounting surface.

–  Low-profile length for increased mobility and decreased “snag” factor.
-  The forward angle increases the rigidity of the forearm, while providing a more natural wrist angle.
-  Can be mounted in reverse angle to increase control when grabbing handguard and grip.

BCMGUNFIGHTER Stock Mod 0 – Released for Purchase Today

Posted on October 10th, 2014 by ar15news

Earlier today, Bravo Company Manufacturing released their much anticipated BCMGUNFIGHTER Stock Mod 0 for purchase. Ever since we started seeing pics of these stocks in use with some of BCM’s industry partners its been on the must have list. The new stock is extremely low profile with an anti-snag design. It also features a new latch system that is more robust than your usual stock latch which will keep your rifles stock functioning correctly after being dropped or “mortaring” during malfunction clearing. 

Another thing that sets the Mod 0 stock apart from the rest is that it is modular. One such feature is the VBOST or Vehicle Born Operations Sling Tab can be added or removed. This tab is for positioning a thick rubber band, bungee or shooters riggers band to secure your sling to the rifle when not in use, especially during vehicle born operations so your sling doesn’t get caught on anything. If you’re expecting a steep price you’ll be pleasantly surprised that these are just $55.95 which is awesome for an all American made stock. Check out the pics and additional details below then head on over to www.BravoCompanyMfg.com to snag one for yourself before they’re all gone. I just purchased one myself.

FREE Bravo Company BCG and BCM COMP with Purchase of Upper

Posted on July 28th, 2014 by ar15news

Not sure how long this has been going on but my buddy Richard just gave me a heads up that BCM (Bravo Company Mfg) has some pretty sweet incentives to buy a BCM Upper. As many of you are already aware, BCM make some of the most sought after rifles and uppers out there. However, the market is slow right now and lots of companies are getting creative to bring prospective buyers their way. Usually BCM uppers do not include a BCG or Charging Handle. Typically that is an extra couple hundred dollars that you have to spend but right now, ALL BCM uppers are on sale and will come with a FREE BCM M16 BCG. However, the sweet spot in the lineup is the 16″ uppers which will also come with an additional FREE upgrade to a BCM MOD 0 Compensator. Basically all you need to do is add a charging handle and you’re all set. With over 100 different upper options all on sale, take your pick over at www.BravoCompanyUSA.com.

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.

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.

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

620 BCM KMR KeyMod Rail 5

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 BravoCompanyUSA.com.

620 BCM Vertical Grip Short Black 2

620 BCM Vertical Grip Short Black 1

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.
