I'm finally getting my upper in the mail today and am so excited, I'm getting everything ready so I can assemble it when it gets here. My question is, do I need to disassemble the BCM BCG and oil it or does it come pre-lubed? Thanks in advance!

It comes pre lubed, at least that's how mine was (BCM BCG). ;)

Does it look lubed? Even if it does appear to be, why not just take a minute, go through the motions, and drop oil where it needs to go?

I always clean/lube everything new that goes into my guns anyway. That said most of my BCG's have been pretty slimy and probably could have gone right in and been fired.

well, when I assemble things I tend to double check and clean eveything anyway. Also considering the extractor o-ring always comes seperate from the BCG from bravo. Dissassemble, clean and lube, it only takes all but 10 seconds.

Thanks for all of the responses. I took it and it does look well lubed so I just lubed the bolt carrier. Now the hard part comes ... waiting for the UPS driver!

I lube the hell out of guns so my input is always add more haha. If it doesn't smoke from oil burning off when you fire it you're doing it wrong!

This. :rolleyes:


DI guns like to run wet. I like mine to be so wet, they're dripping with oil... and then I add a little more, to be safe. ;)

It doesn't hurt to throw some more oil on it. I like my BCG to look visibly wet. It only takes a moment to spray some CLP on there.

Congrats on the new AR15!

I remember when I got my first BCM upper it had a note saying that they had "greased" up the BCG, interior of the barrel and the upper receiver, and that it needed to be removed and lubed before shooting. I think it had to do with it being stored in the warehouse and the grease was to protect it from rust and was not meant to be ran like that.

Not sure if I remembered it correctly or not though, its been a while since I have gotten a new upper. It doesnt hurt to make sure its is good to go, just lube it yourself, only takes a few minutes.

They come lubed but not "wet'. I agree...lube it up!
