    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.

    Failing to seat mag correctly?????

    It ate from dirty magazines and was fed ammo that was picked up out of the mud.

    Only needed 1 application of red lithium wheel bearing slime on day 2 when the gun was bone dry and dirty as hell from not being cleaned after day 1.

    If you are going to buy a rifle costing $1,000 or more, take a class on how to fight with it.

    You don't want to be carrying that nice weapon for someone else to bushwack you for your bushmaster.

    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.

    ETA: looks like this thread is going to live forever...

    The US Army or Marine corp will be glade to help you with the class. Heck two days will just be a start. They even pay you to do it.
    1500 rounds ,heck they will put you on the SAW burn that up in minutes.
    Weeks of dry fire clearing then live rounds it is a lot of work.

    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.
