Can you do them in a 1:9 with a low-profile gas block and quad rail?
Thinking about both a 20" and a 14.5"... probably going to be a couple of months.

There are currently only available in 1:7 twist. We will be introducing new standard models over time, and of course we can customize the current models with any of the rails and gas blocks that we have in stock for an additional charge.

Wow, you have actually caught my eye with these impressive specs for the price. I have been looking for a carbine upper that is cold hammer forged (I believe BCM doesnt even offer a cold hammer forged carbine length yet. ) Price is alot better than a DD upper.

And now to sell the wife on it... =/

This comes at a good time for me because I'm actually going to Anaheim tomorrow, and I would love nothing more than to pick one of these up.

BDSMCHS, I'm also curious as to why you say, "FOR LESS", as a BCM is $435 upper + $145 bolt & charging handle. A set of handguards is $20 and there's no tax and free shipping. I love riflegear, and I'm only posting this 'cause I'm confused, not because I'm trying to be a dick ;)


Edited to add: Ahhh, I see it is CHF. I did not take this in to account that you were comparing them to the BCM's much more expensive CHF barreled uppers.

My thoughts exactly. It is the CHF that impresses me. BCM to my knowledge doesnt do a CHF carbine length.

Whos makes these for you guys? And do you have any in stock right now?

A major manufacturer supplies all the parts for these uppers. We think that we've staked our reputation on a good quality upper. Right now we've got 16" carbines, 14.5" carbines, and 16" midlengths in stock.

We're drilling and pinning flash hiders right now.

If you want a barrel cut/crowned/threaded, talk to Randall :)

Christian has informed me sometime soon they will be changing to the RifleGear logo on the BCG instead the the "DareDevil" Daniel Defense logo.

I just bought a 16 inch midlength 2 hours ago and I am extremely impressed. It's pretty much a Daniel Defense upper (came in a DD box, has DD stamped on the bottom of the upper, and a DD bolt) but at a much better price. Rock on rifle gear, you guys are awesome.

I have a 16" midlength with a rifle length buffer. This setup however is short stroking. It will eject the casing but not load another round at times. It will also not go back far enough to engage the bolt stop on a empty magazine. What would be the best way to remedy this? This is on RWS reloads, so probably shooting something a little hotter would remedy it, but I like to shoot the cheap stuff for shorter range training. I'm guessing that if it's ejecting the casing but not feeding a new round, it's only short by a few millimeters. Other than that, it's great.

Yeah, sounds like an ammo thing. Try some different ammo before you do anything just to make sure, If you need to tune it for weaker ammo it can be done. Good lube, lighter spring, Low mass buffer...but it can be frustrating.
