I have been lurking here a bit and thought that I would say hi once I got my new toys(Bushmaster and Pelican Case).  This is a great board and I have already gained a lot of good info.

Great pics, and great gear!  I also have a Bushy M4E3, and I love mine!

Have fun with it!

[wave] Welcome to the site. Real sweet looking set up you have there.  Is that Pelican Green ? Looks cool if it is. Good Luck with the weapon.

It is OD green offered by Pelican.  Thanks for the kind words all!  Now I will go shoot the hell out of it.

Nice choice.  That was my first AR.  I love it.

That's the first green Pelican case that I've ever laid eyes on.  Congrats on your first AR.  One warning......the damn things are like Lay's potato chips.......you can't have just one!!!!!!!!!!!

How hard was it to pluck the Foam to match the rifle?
Link Posted: 5/9/2003 4:24:26 AM EST
Awww, Man!  You messed up the foam!  I'll bet you could have gotten AR's in that case!

All kidding aside, great rifle, great case.

Yeah, is OD a new color?  I have seen only black, silvery gray, yellow, and orange.

Welcome to the 'Black Rifle Club'!

If your new BUSHMASTER looks bad, smells bad, or does anything wrong, you're in the right place for advice!

Welcome from Germany.  Nice rifle and case.  I had a large green pelican case last time I was here in Germany in 88-90'.  Come to think of it 88' was when I built my first AR.

Is that a # 1700?

Yes, it is the 1700 Travel Vault.  OD green is a new color and it had to be shipped from the factory directly.  


The 1700 does not come with the pluck foam as said on their website.  I just used a very sharp Henkl knife because I did not have a electric cutting knife which is what Pelican recommends.  Again, thanks for the welcome.
