I'll just add this here. This is a little thread on "Filthy 14".



FYI: Talking with Pat this weekend, Filthy 14 has over 43,000 rounds on it and still shoots 1.5 inch groups at 50 yards. It will be rebuilt.

I've got copies of this in just about every room in the house!!!

Perhaps I order too much from BCM?...

Thanks Roger for the update on Filthy 14. I bought an upper exactly like it, mostly on Pat's testimonial.

I had an opportunity to T&E this weapon a couple of years ago, before it hit 30K rounds. It shot very well, no malfunctions or issues, and it ate everything I fed it over three days in AZ. I showed me three things, one how much an improvement the 14.5 mid gas system is over the carbine gas M4, what a great optic the T1 is, and that Slip 2000 is a great lube.

The EAG Tactical carbine/upper offered by BCM has a 14.5 with a permed A2X. Filthy 14 was a 16" with a A2.

I was going to say the same thing.

BTW I have the 14.5 mid and I keep hearing they are "finnicky." I have never had a problem. What's the deal?

They don't run well with low powered ammo or heavier buffers. They still run, but you can get some failures to lockback on an empty mag, etc.

same here, what is the problem? i've taken it through a couple of classes and put alot of rounds through it. with no problems as of yet, except for the bad lever which i dumped and it runs like a champ.

Hell yeah, over! By 5000+ rounds....!

I was at the Gadsden Carbine 2 class, last week. #70 and #77 have 12k and about 9k on them, respectively, and they SMELL. There are other T&E guns for EAG student use, with what lot of folks would erroneously think of as a blasphemous amounts of rounds sent downrange without a single cleaning. Bear in mind, Filthy 14 just happens to be the one with the most.

There were 14 soldiers at the class I just attended. I about dropped a deuce in my shorts laughing at the exclaimations of shock and horror when Pat pulled the BCG out of #70 to show them. Looked like it had wind-drifted dunes of wet, black sand on it....

I just want to say that is crazy. At .25cents a round that is almost $10,000 of ammo.(I'm guessing they did not shoot wolf in this gun) I wish they had taken pics when they cleaned it or when the bolt broke. I'd also love to see what an exstractor looks like after 13k rounds.

No doubt. And think there are other BCMs in his lot w/ similar round counts.

I'm curious how many others could do the same.

I was fortunate enough to be able to order an from BCM today. Order placed at 9am, order shipped at 3pm. Such high quality available at the snap of your fingers. Why would you want to go anywhere else. I shake my head every time I hear guys waiting weeks or even months for less quality at similar or even higher prices.

I'm about an hour from them. I wonder if they have a store right there or even some sort of a tour. I am extremely with my BCM and will continue to buy from them. Great customer service, quality and price. What more could you ask for?
