To those of you who have shot both, how is the recoil of the M17 compared to a regular Bushmaster Carbine? Also, what mags can be used in the M17? Can you use USGI 20 or 30 rndrs, or will it only work with the Bushmaster M17 mag?

Any other comments on the M17 appreciated, such as shootability (shells ejecting near your face), reliability, durability, etc.

I've heard that the forward hand grip gets too hot to handle. Is this true?

Now aint that funny, even though Bushmaster has owned this design for many years, they haven't fixed the overheating problem. Do you know if this is a bullpup problem or just an M17 problem?
