    Bushmaster is a piece of junk.

    Picked up my new Bushmaster today,Carbon 15 pistol.I bought it because it is cheap and easy to shoot (9mm) and holds 30 rounds.Failed to feed once and failed to eject twice.Seriously thinking about getting my Benelli back or buying another TRP.I know it hasnt been broken in yet,but if this keeps happening...

    Cool

    OK I'll start. My Bushmaster AR-15 has been nothing but perfect but we are talking about two different animals here. Did you field strip , clean and lubricate the piece before firing it ?

    In no particular order, check -
    - lubrication
    - magazine (try more than one; is the mag fully seated?)
    - goodness of ammo (don't break the gun in on steel-cased stuff)
    - extractor and spring

    You might also try to find a friend who's familiar with ARs and have him look it over.

    Then after a thousand rounds or so, check the gas key screws for loosening, because Bushamster seems to not recognize the need for staking them.

    The AR-15 does not make a good handgun. The whole concept of the AR-15 being used as a handgun is completely flawed.
