Bravo Company Manufacturing, also known as BCM, is a distributor of high-performance weapon systems that are, as they inform visitors to their about us page, “manufactured, reinforced and tested to meet the unforgiving needs of law enforcement, military, security and peace keeping professionals in some of the most high stress environments and situations in the world.” As a company, BCM is unflinchingly dedicated to the manufacture of a rugged, reliable product that can withstand the rigors of real-world conflicts.
What They Do
BCM specializes in the manufacture of assault rifle category weapons and specialty parts for assault rifles. On BCM’s main page, their products are separated into four categories:
- Carbines- Generally speaking, carbines are considered long arms with a barrel that is shorter than the typical rifle for ease of handling. Carbines are often used by highly-mobile infantry who prefer ease of use and portability to extra range and power. One of the most famous examples of a carbine would be the M1 Carbine used during WWII. Not to be confused with the M1 Garand Rifle, the carbine was a light-weight alternative that allowed soldiers with specialized training and gear (radiomen, paratroopers, mortar crews, etc.) to carry a firearm that was powerful, reliable, and accurate without adding too much weight or limiting their ability to carry field packs and other gear.
- Rifles- The term rifle could technically be applied to any weapon with a barrel which has been subjected to the process of rifling, which puts special grooves into the interior of the barrel so that the projectile has a precise and predictable spin upon exiting the barrel. During the Revolutionary War, when our country was fighting the British Empire for independent status, one of the largest advantages the revolutionaries had over the British regulars was that many revolutionary soldiers were using rifled muskets which were much more accurate than the British army’s smoothbore muskets. Of course, the rifle has evolved greatly over the years. The rifles that BCM offers are much more accurate, rugged, and reliable than their revolutionary era forebears, with vastly improved parts, construction, and trigger mechanisms.
- NFA- The term NFA refers to any firearms that are regulated under the National Firearms Act. The items on this page are intended solely for use by the military and law enforcement.
- Accessories- The parts in this category include things such as custom grips and reinforced charging handles to enhance the reliability, accuracy, and ease of use for different BCM firearm products.
The main BCM website is geared towards military contractors and others who need to have access to military grade weapons. This is one of the reasons why BCM has a “Gunfighters Program” that calls on industry-leading military and weapons experts (such as Pat McNamara, who has 22 years of Special Ops experience) to help them design and improve their carbines and accessories. By consulting with these individuals, BCM ensures that their military grade products are top-quality items that servicemen want to use.
BCM also has a second website that offers other products, such as sights, magazines, and weapon lights for handguns and assault rifles. On the Bravocompanyusa.com website, the company reinforces its belief in the second amendment, and actively “support responsible private individuals having access to the same tools of civilian Law Enforcement to affect the same ends.” In addition to product listing for various partner companies, this second site also has a collection of stories and essays that help make the argument for responsible gun ownership in America.
Preserving Their Story
As a major American manufacturer of top-quality firearms, BCM is no stranger to the pages of high-profile industry magazines. Just recently, S.W.A.T. Magazine ran a special offer in one of their issues to give away a BCM Jack Carbine in their February 2014 issue. In this sweepstakes issue, the magazine not only offered the carbine as a prize, but they discussed what makes the Jack Carbine, and BCM, top-quality equipment.
To celebrate being featured in S.W.A.T. Magazine’s giveaway, BCM decided to commission a custom plaque from In The News, Inc. to mount in their offices. This elegant ebony wood plaque joins the dozens of other plaques that BCM has commissioned in the last few years to help preserve and chronicle the company’s progression as a major firearms manufacturer.
By sealing the article within the plaque, the article not only gets an attractive display, it is protected from the effects of exposure to both air and moisture. This means that each and every one of BCM’s articles will not fade, yellow, tear or crack for as long as they are within their plaques. These plaques are designed to last for decades so BCM and its employees can continue to enjoy the stories within.
The sleek design of the ebony plaques make them the perfect display for BCM’s top-of-the-line rifles, carbines, and other equipment, and have a nearly-timeless look that fits into almost any professional office setting.
We here at In The News are happy to help American companies just like BCM celebrate their achievements and share them with their employees and office visitors. It is our hope that BCM continues to enjoy success as a provider of high-quality products and that they stay a prominent, positive institution who continue to be featured for the quality of their work.
