John Sampson: But can it handle the differrent chamber pressure with the 5.56 Nato round
MrJChave .: Got mine on Black Friday for $549.99 with 4 extra Mags and a Cleaning kit.
Want to do some upgrades to it also. You did a fine job with yours. What's
the name of the front forgrip? It looks comfortable. I want to get the same
usadvisor: I was one of the nay sayers and scoffed at them. but after checking out one
my friend bought......I have to say it has alot of pluses. main one being
UNBELIEVEABLY LIGHT !! he has not fired it much,but said he had zero malfs
with both cheap and decent ammo,so far! like others have said
before....glocks were laughed at when they first came out,and no ones
laughing at them anymore
spyroseye1978: UTG Aluminum Quad Rail ------ got it off Amazon for like 50.00
0311nwe: @spyroseye1978 it is threaded. the flash suppressor is tacked on have a
armouer file the tack down and replace with a different flash suppresor
GordonNewman39: its hard doing that with any AR i recomend using the tool if not your gonna
scratch it all up
brentsrx7: Are you going to register your magazines... Your state has some crazy
spyroseye1978: i added a utg aluminum quad rail and a front forgrip with a firefield laser
and a tactical sight and changed out the hand grip to a magpul and it took
the gun from 7 lbs to 10 pounds unloaded so its still very light and like i
said too in the vid i put 400 rounds through it fast and 200 through my
full size olypic arms AR and the bushmaster other than the barrel had
nowere on the rifle that i couldnt put my tounge with double the ammo
through it for the price its a winner in my opinion
chanch29: You would be an idiot not to like these guns. I have an armalite that used
to be cool my carbon 15 is way lighter way tighter and just as accurate.
People bash it but the people that do spend 2 grand on their ar and it dont
perform any better than the carbon 15 ....nice reveiw
0311nwe: check out my video
spyroseye1978: damn that sux man sorry to hear that i havent had a wink of trouble with
mine an my friend picked one up too i put maybe 5k of rounds through it too
no issues i like it compact design and its light and dont get hot i was and
still are skeptical thugh of the carbon i ust dont know its life span butt
so far so good there are going to be some bad ones out there fresh of the
ssales floor unfortunaly you got one, m4 is nice though good call enjoy
m70c00l: and i replaced the gas block with a yhm flip up front sight gas block so
mine has iron sights now
Benjamin Despain: Is it a 2gen?
naptownfireman: Ha! At 10:55 he said he is expecting to get a good life sentence outta this
gun...:-). I hope not bro! Good buzzed review though.
spyroseye1978: yeah i know sucks mayrland sucks they could of gave a 20 freakers but no
matter i got hunderds of 30 rd mags
spyroseye1978: no complaints holding up super and its not heavy at all and other than the
barrel nothing really gets hot, very happy with it for the price, i put
maybe a few thousand rounds though it no issues a few no fires from the
primer being bad but other than that awesome AR for the price
HankHillarious: Ok thanks. It looks like it will be a nice gun
0311nwe: @Fraiyia lol youve posted on almost every youtube on the bushmaster a
hairlin crack lol prove it. your probably ar rep from another company stop
whining you got your return lol
spyroseye1978: nope im moving to delaware
0311nwe: It's Dave Wooderson at opening lol its great! ( dazed and confused)
PurpleHat1991: what kind of battery does the bushnell red dot take that it came with? i
just got this rifle and it didnt come with a battery and i cant figure out
which kind it takes
killinpigs: Got mine for $699 at Academy 1 1/2 years ago . Same setup. The Bushmaster
red-dot wouldn't stay on zero, so I gave it to my grandsons for their
airsoft rifle. Excellent rifle. After 4k it's still shooting like a charm
without a single misfire except for bad ammo primers. I plan to get a
second one for the wifey! Well worth $700.00.
Scott Burgess: Where did you find it for that price? I live in Baltimore,Md and am seeing
for $1,000 plus without the add ons.
stephanie70306: how is the scope working, i have the same one. check out my video.let me
know what u think
spyroseye1978: only gripe with this gun i have is i wish the barrel had a flash hider or
threads on the end of it but imma take care of that real soon other then
that no complaints
GHPREPPER: mine came with two 30 round mags , hard case ,cheap red dot all for 599.00
at Cabelas Christmas of 2011
410mrdiesel: Damn 10 round mag. I'm in easton and my mini 14 came with a 20 rd mag . And
the flock 22 came with a 15 rd mag
spyroseye1978: no not hard at all took me about 8 min to take off the stock handguard and
put the quad rail on, you can do it without the tool with a flat head but
if you have the handguard tool its easier
caddilacjim: great video and great review not a bad AR for the price
Daniel Best: What quad rail do you have on it?
spyroseye1978: I would say for 750 bux for a bushmaster with a hard padded case and a
bushenell trophy sight hell yeah its an awesome entry level rifle into the
AR world its light 7 lbs ubloaded around 8 or 9 loaded, and they are easy
to work on and do things to for cheap, only question i asked myself as i
said in the video is the durabililty but then again being its carbon and
not a metal i cant bushmaster putting their name on it if it were going to
crack or break in any places after 10 thhousand rounds
Shinobi HOG: assholes in virginia are listing this same gun for $1300, ridiculous.....
Shinobi HOG: im thinking the manufacturers were waiting to see what happened in
congress, and since we won yesterday i expect the market to get restored
HankHillarious: Just got this gun. Was it hard getting off the old handguard and putting on
the new quad rail?
Veronicca Lakewood: bought mine 2 days ago. found a hair line crack up near the top of forward
assist. made them take it back! got a metal m4. cuz I really. don't want a
weapon blowing up in my face. Carbon AR? NO THANKS.
spyroseye1978: No Maryland
spyroseye1978: any AR you can find somewere now is a good deal lol
famousaj1: i just picked one up, can you run down a quick parts list of everything you
installed? I love the look of it. great review!
xdshooter1: How are you liking your carbon 15? I 'm thinking about buying one. How is
it holding up for you? Any issues?
wwclay86: love the setup. thanks for the idea about the firefield laser and the
trigger forward grip.
FirstFlyboy: Bought one on March 13, 2013. Went to put a sling adapter on the thing and
the entire lower receiver snapped into two pieces when I tried to loosen
the extension tube nut. Broke at the take-down pin area which is obviously
a very weak area. Did a search online and found out this is not uncommon.
Crap, I have never even shot the thing. Now I have to send it back to
Bushmaster for repair/replacement. Have heard of them breaking when dropped
also as little as 2-3 feet.
spyroseye1978: wow first i heard of them breaking like that without being fired
repeatidly, i got quite a few friends that picked one up after i got mine
nobody had an issue yet and i pumped at least a good few thousand rds
through mine since i owned it, and no issues whatsoever,(knock on wood) but
it is carbon fiber and if you want that light mobile compact AR action dont
be dropping it, i replaced my takedown pins on it with those push button
release pins as soon as i got it id sugggest u do that too
GordonNewman39: just wait everything is gonna come back down a metal bushmaster is only
1000 at my gun store.
Sean Hamilton: Just bought mine on Thur. 04-11-13 and my butt stock was cross threaded in
the lower receiver and was also cracked on top around around the
threads...had to send it back ..I should of looked at it alot more before
buying it ..jury's still out.
m70c00l: before i put an eotech magpul furnature and a light mine was about 4.9
pounds but its still under 6 pounds
spyroseye1978: i got thr ptrice by accident gander priced it wrong threy were suposed to
be priceing something else similar for that price and i happen to see the
guy put the tag on it so what the tag says is what they got to sell it to
jhc194: Hey man keep up the good work with the reviews you pump out. I was
wondering would you recommend this ar 15 to someone new to the ar 15 world,
like myself? Thanks.
bosundave121: If the 12" will fit over your gas block GET it. THen buy Magpul poly flp up
sights and co-witness them with the TRS-25. You will have a great LONG
sight picture now and a really nice option for being able to stright arm
DRIVE your gun for run and gun. Forget fwd vertical grips. DRIVE your gun
with a 12" rail and a "C-Clamp" hold with your left hand. See how Costas
drives his AR. It works..well. You save the weight and bulk of unneeded
fore grips. Wear a glove if the EVO rail gets hot.
bosundave121: I have a C-15 and I hate what you did to yours. It is full of heavy, cheap,
ugly Chinese CRAP! ... like that monstrosity of a fore grip. Its a gimmick.
It really is hideous. And that is being kind. You bought the wrong platform
to play Tacticool. Keep things simple. No lasers, lights etc. Just a TRS-25
on a riser. Spend some quality dollars and buy a REAL rail..a SAMSON EVO
rail with the new KEY MOD system. ,,,Check and see. I think the 12 inch
rail will clear your low profile gas block and make the gun look incredibly
handsome and practical.. Buy a Brownels silicon wire extractor spring so
you can shoot steel cased ammo. get a BADASS ambi safety in 45 degree
version and AMBI ALL your controls. THAT is tactical. If you dont have
every control ambi the gun will never be remotely tactical. What, you need
to call a time out when you shoot around a left side barricade? troy for
ambi mag release. Badger or Rainier for AMBI charging handle, Magpul for
BAD lever but you need to grind off a tiny portion of a lip on your upper
so the BAD has clearance. Simple. You will see. A simple MOE
stock...NOTHING more is needed!! Please dont desecrate this fantastic gun
any more! Its a sin!
