If you have not bought it yet! I wouldn't. They are either OK or a nightmare. I would suggest buying a standard version.

Check out the other threads on the Carbon. You'll soon prefer a stick in the eye over a BM Carbon-15.

Never handled one but asked my dealer about them. He quit carrying the Carbon 15s, said there were just to many problems.

I'd stay away from an AR they have for sale at Gander Mountain, that comes with red dot and 3 mags for $679. I was about to post the link but I guess the sale ended.

After seeing that thread about the BM lower, I'm never going to lay a finger on a BM product. I heard Stag has great customer service.
Best advice I ever received: It's better to be tried by 12 then carried by 6.

The gun shop I work at....we avoid them at all costs. We always steer them away from them. Too many problems.
