A buddy of mine is looking at Bushmaster's Carbon 15 Model 4. At first I encouraged him to build a more traditional lightweight AR with my help and tools. After discussing it, he may want to buy the Carbon 15 Model 4 and replace the barrel and handguards with an ABS carbon fiber barrel and PRI Carbon Fiber Free Float Tube.
Are the Bushmaster CF receivers the only ones worth a damn? I've never read anything positive about other ones.
Is there any way to order just the CF receivers from Bushmaster? Last time I checked they were not on the website or in the catalog.
Looks like they are only sold as complete rifles.

I talked to a Bushmaster rep a week ago, you can buy the lower for a little less than 180 dollars from Bushmaster.
Rifle or pistol version.
I would stay away from the carbon 15 uppers though for the time being.
