Default ARE BRAVO COMPANY COMPLETE UPPERS TOP SHELF?

I was wondering if anybody owns Bravo Company Uppers? I have only known them for producing charging handles but noticed they do complete uppers.

I really like their 20" upper but they only make that in a "standard" and no Hbar available.

I've got one of their 16" inch BFH mid length uppers and it performed perfectly right out of the box. They're a little pricey, but are considered one of the top notch companies in the AR world. Plus they do a lot of good things for Vets. Bottom line is I'm happy with mine and would buy it again.

They are "top tier" and good-to-go. Excellent QA/QC program. Paul puts out superlative products. As said, a little pricey but "buy once.....cry once".

If you plan on running a carbine hard, consider Bravo Company. I have seen carbines with improperly staked carrier keys, cheap bolts, and low quality triggers fail during prolonged firing schedules at classes.

Speaking for myself, I will spend the extra money for piece of mind.

I am driving myself nuts trying to see if I am better off sticking with 5.56 since I already have completed lowers or should I get a complete Bravo AR10 that is a .308 People keep telling me the .308 is really designed to be used with a scope and long distance, that you are not going to use that for close quarters. For 200 yards or less they say 300 blackout or 7.62x39

You might want to consider a 6.8 SPC II or 6.5 Grendel upper. They will fit your 5.56 lowers with no problem, extend your range, and the finished product will be considerably lighter than an AR10.

BCM is an excellent company. Top notch products.

Before you go diving into different ammo ask yourself what's the point of this rifle

What Arik said. "The mission drives the gear train", I was once told by a wise man.

Also, 5.56 ammo is somewhat easier to procure and cheaper for the most part compared to other calibers. This fact is especially important for initial and sustainment training.

Remember, it's not the arrow.....it's the Indian.

Jm2c. Others may know more though.

Default Perfect in every way
