    Bcm socom - but something similar in 16” with mid length gas

    Considering a bcm 14.5 socom carbine length gas upper but wondering if bcm may have plans to make something similar in a 16 mid length. It would probably sell well. Hint....

    Checked their site and don’t believe they currently offer a middie 16” “socom” upper

    Considered building one but would prefer to support bcm.

    Not interested in similar offerings from other makers. Would get the bcm 14.5 socom instead of a 16” “socom” middie from another maker.

    (Nothing against other makers. It just that my bcm’s function 100% and I’m superstitious.....so bcm’s are my “good luck” charms like how some have “good luck” socks.)

    Thanks in advance!

    I too love BCM stuff, and I have a BCM SOCOM 14.5" pinned upper. I recently bought an ELW 14.5" mid-length upper. It's great to carry, but I much prefer the shooting qualities of the SOCOM carbine upper. I know that's comparing apples to oranges, but I thought I'd throw that out there. I had a standard weight BCM mid-length several years ago that I traded off. I'm probably one of the few weirdos that prefers a carbine-length gas system. I don't think they kick any more than a middy, and to tell you the truth, neither kicks very much, anyway. I haven't seen anything in BCM's catalog like you are describing. I'd get the SOCOM setup.

    I think the closest you're going to find is one of their few enhanced medium weight barrels.

    I don't think you'll be disappointed with the SOCOM setup. Good luck!

    I don't know their future plans, but this is your closest bet.

    I wish their EMW-F barrel was BFH/CHF, and it's too bad they only offer that profile as a 14.5"

    Agreed. I want an EMW-F at some point, it’d be nice if they made it a BFH. I emailed them asking if it would be, they said they have no plans but it wouldn’t hurt for others to tell them the same thing.

    I have a BCM 16" SOCOM which I converted into a quasi-recce style carbine. It is a great shooter and combined with a H2 buffer it is a soft shooting carbine which I would highly recommend.
