I need some recommendations on some good bnc connectors to put on my belden 1855 cables. I'm using them for component cables.

I got these:

And they didn't work well at all. After crimping the more or less fell off or failed to make a connection. Obvioulsy I did something wrong, but I pushed the wire up as best I could. I got no results once they were all connected, and most eventually fell out when I mounted them in the wall.

mini-coax is one evil piece to have to work with. Even the pros I've seen working it spend a lot of time on each individual connector, generally cursing under their breath as to why they just didn't pull 5 RG-6 cables in.

A word of test-advice, however, after crimping, the connector should be able to withstand, oh, at least 10 pounds of pull force. So once you think you have it, don't be gentle, and you may save yourself some disappointment.

I, personally, have never worked with the thin stuff, so all I can really do is offer you luck.

Go to the Belden website. Someplace they have a "Connector Cross Reference" chart which will tell you what connectors work for each of their cables. Then try Markerteck or an electronics supply house to get the connectors that match that cable.

(This is why I like the Canare stuff: cables, connectors, strippers, crimpers - all from the same company).
