I am thinking "keep it simple" so I can keep my Armalite M4 upper in tact. If I order a Bushmaster Varminter 24" complete upper, then I presume I can just drop it into the Armalite lower and commence a breakin. I found one at Midway for $599. Do you have a suggestion for an alternate source ?

Just orderred the Bushmaster 24" Varminter complete upper. I will drop it in the Armalite lower, mount my Leupold BDC scope & begin breakin next week. I break in as follows: Using inexpensive FMJ but a name brand - Federal,Win,PMC, Rem, (A) 5 rounds /clean - ten cycles. (B) 10 rounds / clean - 10 cycles.

Dial in scope tight. Usually smile. If any one has an alternative suggestion, lay it on me. This has been my practice for years & seems to have worked.
