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...
Here you go....
and something to drink??

You have never lived until you have almost died. For those that have fought for it, life has a special flavor the protected will never know
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 -
- 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.

Yes,i did the same thing i do to every gun before firing.Field stripped,checked it and cleaned.I was using Federal hollow points,never failed me before.Taking it to a friend who has 2 ARs soon as i can.

Yuck I hate Pepsi got any tea.
you started the break in with hollowpoints??? theres your problem, everyone knows use ball ammo for the first 100 rounds to break in the ramp and ejector

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