So I have a bushy 20 inch bbl (1/7, chrome lined) on a bcm upper that I've yet to shoot. Would it be worth my time and money to sell it and pick up a complete bcm 20 inch upper?

What do you want to do with it?  I don't think you will ever know the difference.  With good ammo I know it would be more accurate than I am.  If you use a good cleaning rod, what can happen to the bore lining?

When did that become unfashionable?

The only thing I can think of that you would gain is an F marked FSB. My bushmaster 20" shoots great, I wouldn't change it.

All my Bushmasters have had really good barrels, I feel their barrels are one of their high points.

Dunno what you will gain by changing it for another CL 1/7 bbl. Keep it, shoot it, then think on it more.

I would save the money and buy more ammo instead!!

Unless you have OCD and want the upper to be all BCM, keep the Bushmaster barrel.

I had a bushy 20".  Great shooter.

Funny but true

Yeah, I have no real problem keeping it.  I was just wondering if it was worth it to change it.  I had an old post-ban 14.5" Bushmaster barrel that has been great for thousands of rounds.

I have a 1/9 20" Bushmaster HBAR (ban config upper). It shoots plenty accurate with both centerfire ammo and .22s. With PMC ammo, iron sites, and a stock single stage trigger I can easily shoot a 97 prone at 200 yards on the SR target.

The most accurate weapon I've ever owned is a Bushie 20" FHBAR A2  1/9.  This thing dates from 1990, when Uncle was still supposedly
looking over their shoulder.   Have gotten real 1/2" groups on occasion with Fed.69grn.  Sierra OTM.  This piece has never hiccuped  
once...ever!   One great thing about Bushie is their customer service is really awesome.

no park under the fsb, the rifle will rust off at the fsb in hours.

the bushy will be fine.
