    Rocky, your AR is awesome, you guy's are killing me with all these cool AR's you have been posting.

    I haven't jump on the wagon yet cause I don't know a whole lot about them, I'm learning.

    Back in 1983, I gave $325 for an AR. I sold it long ago and often wish I still had it.

    Nope, i have only sold 1 gun in my life. When I bought the AR , the salemans asked if I wanted the cardboard box, as it would be worth more if I sold it. Told him to keep the box.

    thanks Qkshooter, for the pic. fixing.
    Even loaded , the gun weights about 7 lbs. Not too bad, considering 1 lb. is a 30 rnd mag of ammo.

    Rocky ,does being a southpaw ever give you problems with shooting your rifle?I see there are left handed upper receivers being made now !Although I am not sure if they are compatible with your carbon 15 lower receiver.Nice weapon great for scaring the

    I have had a few peices of brass slip down the shirt, so added a brass deflecrtor bigger than the original. Otherwise the AR is set up for ambi use. I converted my safety to the RT side of the lower for ease of use too.
    I am somewhat intrested in the Stag uppers, and they should fit , no problem with a carbon lower. Will see, I may build another AR w/ the LH upper.

    Very nice Rocky. Don't you just love how easy they are to take apart for cleaning! I'm surprised you dont have a dbl mag connector.

    They are a hoot to shoot!!

    I tried , but the due light weight of the Carbon 15 the spare mag . would lose ammo during the recoil impulse.

    You could try using a mag cover on the loaded spare to eliminate that problem, but that would add an extra step of having to take the cover off before insertion. .


    They sell for $7.50 for a set of four and can be found at: www.bushmaster.com

    Nonetheless, your AR is a fine looking weapon!
