    what length gas tube does my new bushmaster carbon 15 have?

    I just purchased a new bushmaster carbon 15 with the flat top and red dot scope last week and love it but I'm interested in making a few changes mainly cosmetic for now. I'd like to get a new handguard from magpul but they have 3 choices, carbine length, mid length, or rifle length gas tubes that I need to know when ordering the new guard. Can someone help me figure out what I've got? I believe it's carbine length but not positive.... Thanks!

    I'm 99% sure it's carbine. But without a picture Who knows. If the handguard is 7" long it's most like carbine. Mid-length is 9" and rifle is 12". There are exceptions to that. But assuming the handguard is 7" and it's using a fixed front sight post. You have a carbine length gas system.
