    Tangle, that model is just running a normal low profile carbine gas system right? The parts that might wear and deteriorate during shooting are going to be the BCG and barrel, both commonly found parts and relatively easy to replace. The uniqueness of that gun to me is the front stock, which shouldn't take any wear. I am assuming you can remove the front stock and top rail and place it on another gun ya? I can't see the photo too clearly so I can't really tell.

    Good points, thank you for that.

    To tell you the truth, I'm not sure how the thing comes apart or if it's compatible with a regular AR stock. I know the forend attaches differently, here's a pic, not sure you can tell much about it though.



    And of course the carbon fiber receiver is tapped for the flattop rail.

    I'm gonna have to dig out my manual on it and see if it's any help.

    Thanks for the thoughts - certainly encouraging about longer term sustainability. Hmmm, Bushmaster took over Professional Ordnance, I just might give them a call.

    Well, it's a little different than an AR:



    In this pic you can see a big difference. The upper will not tilt down like a normal AR. Both the rear and front pins have to be pushed through, but not out, and the upper lifts out of the receiver. The tube like thing that engages the recoil spring prevents the tilt. Oh, the tube like thing doesn't go under the hammer as indicated in the pic.



    Also notice how the stock attaches - significantly different. That little lever at the rear of the receiver rotates and releases the stock.

    And here's a close-up of the bolt and charging handle:



    Oh, and BTW, this version weighs 4-1/4 lbs; the current Carbon 15 offerings from Bushmaster weigh 5-1/2 lbs - a full 1-1/4 lbs heavier!

    I owned a Bushmaster version of this rifle. The hanguard should be attached to the gas block via a single screw. The takedown manual called for removing the stock and then unscrewing the buffer tube.
    Mine was slightly different with a short rail on the upper and a QD comp on the muzzle. It was light weight and ran fine , however the brass deflector on mine fell off. Also during rapid fire the muzzle break would detach and fly forward. At one point I had installed a standard buffer tube, stock and quad rail. Eventually I got tired of it and traded it for a S&W 15-22.

    I just checked Bushmasters website, and their carbon 15 pistol has a similar stock as yours, so I bet they could provide you with parts or service if necessary.

    Do it. When Bushamster first took over the Carbon 14s, they looked just like yours does for at least a couple of years. They should be able to give you the guidance you need.
