Well, here it is! Not the best photo but it will have to do for tonight. I got the BCM lightweight upper today and the BCM Medium Charging handle, and the BCM BCG and MI Hand guard yesterday in the mail. All I need is some BUIS and maybe a red dot and I am ready to head to the range. One thing I noticed, the BCG came with a little, black o-ring but no instruction on putting it on. Do I need it? Thanks again for all the recommendations and help.

Got it, I just read up on it and it sounds like on a mid lenght it is not needed. Thanks again.

I don't use the O ring either and haven't had extraction problems.

are you talking about the o-ring donut that sits in the extractor...if so i dont use one either. I have pretty much the same BCM midwest t9...you know what I got that I think really helps...is a picatinny side rail sling mount...
