    BCA 47 Upper Assembly #2

    They put the complete uppers on sale for $199.90 and I had already bought the Side charging one.
    So, I went ahead and ordered this one to go with it.

    I will install the early A2 hand guards and Carry handle on this one also.

    I may change out the BCA Spiral Flash Hider to the A2 style birdcage flash hider also.

    I will have $288.90 invested in this one.
    ( some parts were free take off parts, stock and hand guards)


    ================================================== ===
    The BCA 47 Upper Assembly has a 16" heavy barrel made of 4150 steel with a parkerized finish, a 1:10 twist rate and a carbine length gas system. The assembly includes a standard hand guard with an A2 front sight, an M4 flat top forged upper receiver with forward assist, a bolt carrier group and a charging handle. It is chambered in 7.62x39 and machined with .300 Blackout feed ramps in the barrel extension.
    PLEASE NOTE: This item has our new BCA Spiral Flash Hider, not the birdcage flash hider shown in the image. We will be updating the image soon.
    The BCA 47 AR-15 Complete Upper Assembly, like all BCA products, is subjected to numerous QA/QC checks which for our firearms and upper receiver assemblies includes test firing prior to approval and shipment. This upper assembly is also backed by our BCA limited lifetime warranty. Choose an upper assembly designed by a U.S. company made in the U.S.A. Choose BCA.

    I got the upper in Thur. and installed it on a lower.

    I plan on doing some more modifying to it today.
    I put the smaller hand guards on it, but it fits very tight on the gas tube.
    So, I may just install the original hand guards back on it.

    Pictures later...……...

    I have a couple of safes that I put the guns in until I finish working on them.
    They are full, so this week end I will pull them all out and see what they need to finish them.
    Will work on them until I can get some more room.

    I ended up taking it all apart and doing something different with it.

    Changed out the upper receiver to an earlier made A2 upper.

    When I started to remove the hand guard I noticed it was not installed correctly. Fixed that.

    I installed an early A2 style adjustable stock on it.

    Overall I like it very much.

    Now the pictures...…done....

    $288.90 invested in this one.

    That is nice, I like it!

    Much better than the flat-top, I'm not a big fan of those. A1 or A2 uppers for me.

    Thanks.
    I am not a big fan of the "Flat Top" upper receivers.
    I usually remove them and install a C-7 or A2 receiver on them.
    I have a few boxes of them in storage now.
    When I cannot get the carry handle uppers I will use them.

    I enjoy putting them together just for fun.
