Rifle build (AR-15)

Has anyone here in the forums have experience with BCM? I just got my spike tactical lower and was wondering if the BCM completed upper was good as people make it sound to be on youtube.

MarcoPoloTX, I've got a 16" Mid-Length BCM Upper assembly. It doesn't have a lot of the "Bells and Whistles". I'm satisfied with its performance so far, but then again, I haven't been in any gun battles with it either. It's as accurate as I need for it purpose. It's very accurate with Match grade ammo, such as Magtech/CBC 5.56x45mm OTM 77 grain where it will attain MOA results.

BCM is superb! Here's my new 14.5" middy with permed flash hider. I've run 600 rounds through it so far and it is great. 600 rounds without cleaning as a break in, no stoppages. Standard chrome lined barrel government profile. SA/ Areo Precision lower with psa lpk.
Shipping is super fast too!

I think most things BCM are top tier, I have 4 BCM BCG's. I think they are a little expensive though. I buy the FNH CHF barreled Uppers from Palmetto State Armory...And try to get them on sale.

As long as we're on the subject...ish. This came in the mail today. A CDI 0-100 ft lbs 1/2" Torque Wrench.I've worked with Torque wrenches before, but never owned one. I wanted to be able to install my own barrels rather than buy a complete upper...more flexibility. It was the next stage of the learning process for me. Also got a 24" breaker bar in for the heavy work.

No issue with BCM, but they do not manufacture any of the parts in the uppers they sell and they like to charge a premium for their parts. Like most shops its just an upper assembled with other MFG's parts that have BCM's logo on it. I would personally build my own, you can build exactly what you want and usually save a few bucks. I prefer to just go to the source of the parts and buy directly from the manufacture. I do not need to pay a premium for someones logo and I prefer to assemble myself to ensure everything is correct.

I have been researching for a long time. FN makes allot of the barrels and parts for many companies like Colt and BCM, Noveske etc. That just shows many charge allot for their R&D, assembly and QA, which is critical.
For example, I am OCD enough to put a barrel on, but will it be aligned right on, torqued correctly etc. Probably. But the companies above, including PSA have accountability, insurance and reputation online..
Parts are cheap, assembly is critical.

As far as I know, there are only a handful manufacturers making CHF barrels. FNH, DD, Ruger, Colt (Canadian plant), Steyr, and one or two I can't remember. FNH puts out the lion's share of CHF barrels, and they if they are good enough to leave FNH's factory, they are good barrels. Some are just better than others. BCM and a couple other higher-end rifle/upper builders buy what meets or exceeds their standards and the rest get offered at a discount to the mid-range makers who accept what meets or exceeds their standards and so on.

This^ and with BCM like Colt you are paying for individual part testing on every barrel, bolt etc. Batch testing is a lot cheaper. To each their own but me personally I'll pay for it.
