If they don't make the specs available, they're either lazy or ashamed of them. Neither inspires confidence in their product.

So what brand and model are you talking about? Links to the "specs" page, at least what you've found?

DPMS ORACLE yes I know its a cheap rifle and most don't like DPMS but I love the rifle it runs hard for me with no problems after over 2k rounds in only 5 range trips with no hiccups.
They have all the other specs on the website except that particular spec its mil spec upper and lower but really wish I knew what the BCG is

It's not terrible. It'll probably run fine for a long time.

DPMS Oracle is far from milspec. The barrel is going to be a 1:9 chromoly lined setup. Again fine, but not milspec. And the barrel and bolt are the two most critical parts. And I'll bet the buffer tube is commercial as well.

Most DPMS stuff is about as commerical (non-milspec) as it gets, and the Oracle would top that list. And it's still probably a good rifle for the price.

My advice is to keep it as a plinker/trainer, and start from scratch if you want milspec gun for heavy lifting.

Go BCM or Spikes m-16 carrier, I went with a spikes m16 carrier one with NiB coating properly staked proper extractor and insert and individually HPT/MPI. You can never go wrong with BCM.
