BCM engraved barrel markings on 11.5" ?

LuckyDay1985 ·
Hello all. I'm very new here, but I just posted my intro., so I think I can make a post now? Correct me if I'm wrong.... So I am looking to buy an 11.5" BCM upper online. Seller says it is new from the factory and unused. It is around $50 cheaper out the door than buying new from BCM (I'm a married teacher with 3 babies at home, and the schools pay us in water... so any savings is worth exploring). The only concern I have is that the barrel appears to be engraved as apposed to stamped.

Negative, the photobucket 3rd party hosting block is stopping you. I've always seen BCM stamped, never engraved.

Ahhh, that right click worked for some reason now. I guess looking at it, I can see why they aren't sure. It doesn't look like the stampings on mine, but at the same time it doesn't look like it's not professionally done, especially with it having finish inside the markings.

(can you right-click this non-image, and then will it take you to what I'm talking about?) I tried to use photobucket, but apparently they charge for that sort of thing, and I really don't see myself uploading lots of photos. Does anyone know of a better free way to post pictures? I'm not trying to waste anyone's time, but I feel like a major tool in the pool over here...

Is there really any other kind of mill that a guy Really wants to run?

I modded the BCM ch to fit my M&P 10. It isnt too big of a deal if you have someone that can machine it a tiny bit for you. All it needs is the groove cut / extended to the end 1/4" IIRC with a proper size ball end mill.

No. I remember hearing about Bridgeport’s from my dad way back in the late 60’s early 70’s. Being a machinist is how he put himself thru Berkeley and got his business degree. Probably the last true conservative to graduate from there and that was the mid to late 50’s.

I have an entire machine shop at my disposal. I can get one of the guys on the manual Bridgeport mills to get it done. They’ve done other work for me before. Thanks for the info, brother. It is much appreciated.

7.62 AR Charging Handles

MOJONIXON ·
For years I ran a BCM Gunfighter Mod 3 (Long Latch) Charging Handle on my 5.56 M&P 15. That gun is now gone and I researched and could find no contraindications to running the 7.62 Mod 3 on my M&P 10 until the package showed up and it's the only place I ever saw that said M&P 10's are a no-go. I'm seeing conflicting info on the Radian Raptor Ambi CH. Some sources say yes it fits others say no it doesn't. Now Ambi is not a requirement but a long latch is due to my serious lack of...

Dry run through with my dummy rounds. 4 X 5 cycles of 5 rounds each cycle. Not a definitive test but all rounds cycled without issue. I hopefully get to live fire test it this weekend. Once again thanks to @ THE EXTRACTOR for telling me about this mod.

BCM charging handle modification complete. Will put it in after work today to check function. Set up time and machine time 10 minutes total. Cost $10 for a good 6 pack of beer.
