The rail is pretty neat. Very thin, and the cool thing is that the included rail sections do not protrude out past the VFG base. Lots of good thought put into the rail.
The rifle itself is pretty amazing. This was my first time running the BCM Gunfighter comp, and it's similar in feel to the BattleComp. I think that if you were to shoot both blindfolded, you wouldn't be able to tell the difference. The Gunfighter Comp does have a lot of concussion, especially if you're at the shooter's 4-5:00 or 7-8:00. If you're at the 3:00 or 9:00, it's actually slightly less concussion. Pretty good indication that it's directing the pressure backward to counteract the recoil. Certainly nothing I'd stick on an SBR, but on a normal carbine it's really not all that bad. I was at a carbine course earlier this year where a guy had an 18" barrel with a Benny Cooley brake, and that brake was far worse than the BCM Gunfighter in terms of the sideblast and concussion. Basically, if you run the BCM on a 14.5" or longer barrel, the guy shooting next to you won't want to falcon punch you because it's not that bad.

good lookin gun, nice video. I particularly enjoyed the part where your gear and your sling were engaged in an altercation

What fell off the side of the gun after you took the first shot?

It was painful watching you fight that sling but that looks like smooth shooting low recoil rifle. I really enjoyed my midlength for that reason.

No, it's not QD. I wish it was, but not a huge deal since I rarely remove my VFG's. The feel of it was actually pretty natural. I am seriously considering a swap to the BCM stubbies from my TangoDown stubbies.

Any chance of it becoming available in 300BLK with a 10.4-11.2" barrel? Been trying toddecide on another SBR AR to throw a can on, and I loveme ssome big heavy hitting rounds (and I pretty much only shoot with a can anymore... It is so muchmmore pleasant).

Had to take it down for some editing of some of the videos. Then went hunting. So, you know...it'll come back. Maybe.
