For all the "haters"......maybe some trolls too
 
Just picked up my Bushmaster Carbon 15. Considering the availability and price gouging going on, I am happy with the deal i got.

Yes, i have read all the reviews on the carbon 15 platform ...good as well as bad. It seems at least %90-95 of all bad reports were from people who do not own one.
This is my first Ar type rifle and will mostly be used as a range gun.....secondary HD also(of course).

I will update with a range trip review when i get a chance to get out.

Any tips or helpful feedback would be appreciated. And yes I expect some negatives from the hardcore AR guys.

I pieced together a Bushmaster carbon-15. I got the flat top upper and superlight barrel. Added an Ace ultra lite stock. The completed rifle weighs just under 4.5 pounds. Heavy rifles just seem to get heavier the further you carry them.

Never have been a fan of the AR-15 or M-16.
