I've had my Bushy for 4 years. I can't remember having had a single issue in function. IMO, that's pretty impressive. It's complete factory parts, no internal mods have been made. I have not run any tough and trying courses with it, i havent slung it in the mud. But it gets used and ignored and, like a good dog, is happy to be handled when i get around to it. Of course now it's worth a bazillion dollars.
What if the Hokey Pokey IS what it's all about?
no i never had a problem with mag seat with mine i dont think you will have any problem i had mine 4 years never had a jam or mag seat failure, you just gotta slap it hard with a closed bolt with a full mag, i usually open my bolt and lock it before inserting a full mag at the range i like to baby my rifle but you can put a full mag in it with a closed bolt just slap the bottom of the mag no problems.

A 'push/pull' would be better than slapping a mag to get it seated. Hitting it in can actually induce a malfunction, damage the magazine, etc.

Happy with mine. It loves the new Pmag 40s. I load them with 40 rounds closed bolt no problems.
I picked up a new Bushy Carbon 15 with the red dot sights yesterday; my first AR; more "for fun" than anything else. The price was right (a bit under $700) and although I read about some frame cracking on guns that were being worked hard, I doubt I'll be subjecting mine to any severe duty. I'm looking forward to getting familiar with it and getting to the range to play a little. Not the best; not the worst, from what I've read and heard.
