About Bravo Company Manufacturing
Bravo Company MFG, also known as BCM or Bravo Company USA, is widely regarded as one of the leading manufacturers of combat-proven rifle systems. BCM was founded in 2005 by a United States Marine veteran wanting to build reliable rifles for law enforcement officers, military personnel, and security professionals.
Every detail put into their AR-15, M16, and M4 variants is there to serve a purpose whether it is something as simple as staking a gas key or castle nut or going out of their way to only use high quality materials.
Every gun is only as good as the components that make it up and each component is built to the same military standard to ensure the firearm is always dependable, even in high stress environments. The BCM Gunfighter line of AR-15 parts is a perfect example of this mindset in action.
The Gunfighter Charging Handle
While seemingly an less integral part to the overall function of the AR-15 system, the Gunfighter charging handle offers a wealth of improvements that make rifle manipulations fast and intuitive.
Offered in multiple variations with small, medium, and large latches as well as an ambidextrous model, finding the right one for the mission at hand easy.
The design of this charging handle mitigates the chance of breakage by rerouting pressure points to the 7075-T6 aluminum body instead of putting that pressure on a tiny roll pin like standard T-handles do.
The snag free profile and robust design are why Bravo Company is proud to call this a “Gunfighter” product.
The Gunfighter Grip
Throughout the years, shooting techniques have changed quite a lot while rifle components roughly remained the same. BCM designed the Gunfighter pistol grip to accommodate the new fighting stances and shooting techniques currently being taught.
The reduced angle on this pistol grip provides better ergonomics for tucking your elbow in and getting in a more “squared off stance” when engaging targets.
With three different configurations to choose from; Mod 0, Mod 1, and Mod 3, shooters can find the perfect grip size for them.
Each grip configuration comes with a spacer to customize the distance to the trigger and a waterproof storage compartment for batteries or other small items. The next component in the Gunfighter arsenal is the carbine stock.
The Gunfighter Stock
The Gunfighter carbine stock is a drop-in replacement for AR-15 rifles and is designed to be lighter weight and more durable than standard buttstocks. It offers enhancements such as ambidextrous QD sling swivel slots as well as a web sling attachment for maximum compatibility with multiple different sling styles.
Also included is the VBOST (Vehicle Borne Operations Sling Tab) system for keeping the sling attached when not in use while in a vehicle. This system keeps the sling out of the way while still being quick to access if needed.
To ensure that this stock can withstand heavy use, it utilizes a patented internal latch system that provides extremely strong retention against the buffer tube to prevent it from collapsing if struck or dropped hard. It is designed to redistribute impact stress through the assembly to prevent parts breakage.
Gunfighter Vertical Grip and Angled Grip
The vertical grip allows a full purchase on the handguard with a natural angle that is more comfortable to use.
The angled version provides the same benefits while being low profile.
Both are made from impact and heat resistant polymer and when combined with the polymer rail covers, provide complete protection from overheating aluminum handguards.
Other small components in the Gunfighter line are trigger guards, light mounts, and even a compensator.
The Gunfighter compensator is designed to reduce muzzle rise, muzzle flash, and lateral pressure. It is machined from stainless steel and comes in different thread patterns depending on caliber.
The ports are cut to redirect expanding gasses upward and to the sides to mitigate recoil and muzzle rise without producing excessive side blast.
Optimized for use indoors in CQB environments, this comp is not designed for competition use, but rather for real-world applications. It also features a Nitride finish for maximum corrosion resistance.
This compensator is a great addition to anyone building a Gunfighter rifle. Of course with a selection of fully built rifles to choose from, you don’t have to take the time acquiring parts and building one.
The Gunfighter select model comes assembled with all the previously mentioned improvements already installed. They take the time to build each rifle for mission specific requirements and thoroughly test them to ensure 100% performance.
These signature rifles are built for those dedicated to putting their lives on the line for the service of others. The barrels are cold hammer forged and chrome lined for extreme durability and longevity to match the design philosophy of the rest of the rifle. Each rifle can be had with multiple different handguards made by BCM.
The QRF line are free floated, quad rail handguards that attach via a steel barrel nut with multiple mounting screws. It provides the modularity of four sides of picatinny rail for attaching lights, and other Gunfighter accessories.
A full length picatinny rail provides an exceptionally solid mounting point for iron sights without fear of losing zero. However four full length rails add a lot of weight to the rifle. A problem which is solved by the KMR Alpha handguard.
KMR Alpha Handguard
The KMR Alpha Rail also features a free float design but is much lighter. Instead of full rails, it has KeyMod attachment slots for attaching rail segments at only the desired points, or simply attaching accessories like optics directly to the receiver.
This allows for a greater range of modularity without the unnecessary weight. Made from aluminum, the 10-inch handguard alone only weighs 6.2 ounces. If KeyMod isn’t your thing, the MCMR handguard is the way to go.
The MCMR Handguards follows the same design as the KMR but is compatible with M-LOK attachment slots. The debate between which is better has been going on since their inception and will probably continue even if a new, more popular attachment method is invented.
However, it is always great to have options to choose from and the MCMR offers just that. With the potential of more manufacturers making M-LOK accessories, finding the parts that suit your build will be easy.
