“This is one of the best products I have received for review in my four and a half years of reviewing. BRD Gun Works’ attention to detail is impressive. The deeper I went into the upper the more satisfied I was. Read my story and know that I would carry one of their products in any circumstances.”
In early 2022, I was contacted by The Firearms Blog and asked to submit a BRD Hunter Series upper receiver group in 450 Bushmaster for review. Anyone that knows anything about this industry and having products reviewed, knows that the majority of reviews performed are done because manufactures hound and/or pay reviewing entities to get their products reviewed. Not the case with BRDGW! The review was completed and the article was published on March 7th, 2023.
“The BRD Gun Works 450 Bushmaster is a hand-built upper that is tuned by a man who has done the footwork. He knows what parts work the best and fits them together, correctly.”
Check out the TFB review article on the BRDGW Hunter Series 450BM URG here.
The 450 Bushmaster URG that was sent in to review has the same components that all of the Hunter Series uppers do, as well as those in my personal 450BM. The same assembly techniques and reliability enhancements that go into all BRDGW rifles and uppers, were used in the upper submitted to TFB for review. When you’re looking for next next deer or slayer, consider a BRD Gun Works LLC rifle or upper receiver group!
Due to demand, at the current time all uppers and rifles are built to order. firstname.lastname@example.org
This upper is designed with hunters in mind. It is kept slim and lighter while still retaining M-LOK attachment points at key locations to mount QD sling attachments, tripod attachment, or a bi-pod attachment. All without sacrificing accuracy. Chambered in 450 Bushmaster this upper is great for hunting deer, hogs, and other medium-sized game.
