Where is a good ($) place to get Bushmaster or custom Bushmaster upper??

Be warned Gunsmoke sells Bushmaster complete uppers but has been known to use a Bushmaster barrel (they are stamped B MP) and whatever extra parts he has to make the complete upper (according to some members) I bought my 1/7 Bushmaster M4 barrel from him but cancelled my order when I didnt like my phoe conversation and got a seperate upper reciver and barreled my upper myself.

that brings up a question. looked at a used bushmaster for sale yesterday. correct bushmaster lower, BMP marked barrell, split A on the upper receiver, NO markings at all on the carrier or bolt. Split A is olympic. does the Bushmaster paint marking on the bolt and carrier come off?

My Bushmaster full auto bolt and carrier cam with no markings at all. My upper which I ordered direct from them also has no markings. That is the big issue with BM is that nothing of theirs is marked.

I've heard that about Gunsmoke. I bought a couple uppers from them in 2000, and the receivers appear to be Bushmaster (they have the dry lube). I ordered a couple barrels from them a year or so ago, and their customer service was pretty bad.

I purchased a 14.5" complete M4A3 upper from a dealer today who said he ordered it from Bushmaster. The only marking on the flattop receiver is a single "keyhole" relief on the right side of the upper receiver. The bottom of the front sight rail next to the barrel was so close I had a very hard getting a side-sling adaptor to get through it. The bayo lug seems to be a bit oversized because I had to force the butt of the bayonet down to get it to lock in place. Then I had a heck of a time getting the darn thing back off! Is this likely from Bushmaster or a put-together like mentioned before?

my bushmaster bolt has mp stamped on the boltd that hold the key to the carrier. the bolts are staked in place too. all bushmaster uppers that i have seen also appear to have a 3 pointed crown on the left side of the front sight tower. weird yeah but check it. BILLYXM15

hmmmm that's interesting Troy, got my info from biggerhammer. my concern is that IF i were to purchase this fine used Bushmaster and wanted to sell it later, then i would have trouble convincing the buyer that it was indeed bushmaster. think after work i will go back to the pawnshop and look at the bolt and carrier again. billyxym15, is the 3 pt crown marking on the FRONT tower or the REAR tower? thanks

YES the barrell is marked BMP 5.56 1/9. has the 3 point crown on FSB. looked at carrier group again this time thru a magnifying glass, no markings whatsoever. thanks
