That is one very nice and cool rifle there Rocky. Few $$$$'s tied up there I'll bet!

I'll wager that is one gun you will NOT be parting with any time soon :wink: Thx for showing that - I must wipe off some drool now, if you'll excuse me :18:

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 :sheep:

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!

I have a tac vest that hold mags and provides for a fairly quick reload. The mag covers just seem liek something to forget to remove while in use. Kinda like a muzzle cover.

Rocky, I am looking at your rifle and trembling in fear at what I'll have mine looking like in 2 years.
yeah, and I have been holding back on putting all the mods. on it. You should see my buddies 13 lb. Carbine. the tactical blender for smoothies weight alot.
