Perfect timing! I just started building an AR to gain some appreciation for the platform. Plus, like the video touched on towards the end, there are several women I know who enjoy shooting the AR. Chick Magnet!
Hey Rob & Paul, what do you two think contributes towards the reliability in the BCM? Gas System? Bolt? Action Spring or Buffer Weight?
Over the winter I built a RECCE upper using a BCM4 upper receiver, KMR-A 15, Ballistic Advantage 16″ Stainless 1:8 Gov Profile barrel topped with a Vortex 1-4 Crossfire 2 and a BCM Gunfighter CH. Tight lockup on the barrel/upper interface (you have to chill the barrel and heat the receiver to fit them), the KMR barrel nut is bombproof and is index free, just torque to spec. No rattle in the rail and accuracy is amazing. Cloverleafs off the bench at 100 yards and I can easily ring a 10″ gong at 200 yards offhand all day long. I do have a Geissele SSA trigger which helps snap off accurate shots but for the money you are hard pressed to find better AR components than BCM.
