did u get the entire barrel fluted? Or just what's exposed? Did you do anything to the barrel underneath the handguard?

Don't you just love your Bushy Modular... I just added an ACE - M4 - SOCOM adjustable stock to mine and would like to add a FH as well... How long did it take them to get the upper back to you?... Thanks and good luck...

The barrel is fluted almost to the barrel nut. Bushie made it that way. It's also heavy under the handguard.

I've been looking at the SOCOM too, looks very nice. That and get a milled FSB with a lug . As far as turn around time, I sent it out the Tuesday after Labor Day, and got it back yesterday.

Where's the bayonet lug? That thing is worthless without it! Go ahead and send it to me for proper disposal. Because I'm such a good guy, I won't charge you a hazardous waste disposal fee.

Oh my, you'd do that for me?? What a pal. Everyone on ARFCOM is just so friendly and helpful. IM me your address and I'll ship it right off. I'll even pay the shipping since you are so kind to dispose of for me.

Nope, but from what pictures I've seen of their work, it would be as good or better.

I see, I see.

Now the BM MCAR HBAR, is the whole barrel 1 width? Or does it get fatter under the tube?

This may be a dumb question, but wat is that silver peice between the receiver and handguard?

That's the lock ring that holds the handguards in place.

That's the lock ring that holds the handguards in place.

Is that specific to the YH handguard or is it universal? I'm looking for something similar for mine. Thanks

I believe it replaces the delta ring that's used to hold the standard handguards on. The YHM like many others is a free float tube.
Link Posted: 9/15/2004 4:51:57 PM EST
Now don't go poking anyone's eye out with that thing.

There are several different methods of indexing a railed handguard.

These handguards use a replacement barrel nut that is threaded on the outside and the tube screw over it. Some handguards like the YHM and LaRue handguards have a lock ring that tightens against the tube. The FIRSH has a screw that clamps the tube to the barrel nut so that it can't move.

Hey Mike, A local custom shop is going to do the Flash hider install on my Bushy Modular carbine. Other than the Phantom Flash Hider is there any other parts I need to supply them with? If you could recommend a source for what I need LMK.

Thanks
Matt

I had ADCO thread my barrel too. Turn around time was right at 10 days from my door to ADCO and back to my door again via UPS ground. I am very happy with the work and will continue to pimp out ADCO every chance I get.

My Phantom came with a crush washer, as far as I know, that would be the only other thing needed. I just sent them the FH and my upper, no bolt carrier or charging handle. If they had to remove my barrel, I can't tell. Not even a point of impact change.

Well shipping + insurance was about $15.00 each way. But bear in mind, I'm in Indiana, and only about 2 hours away from ADCO. I could have just about driven it there for what it cost me to ship.

How do you like that SOCOM stock? I've been looking at getting one.

Link Posted: 9/21/2004 4:18:34 PM EST
well so far it feels really nice, not too heavy and built like a rock, and love the looks too but i just got it and havent had a chance to shoot my rifle with it on yet, its basically like a new rifle, new socom stock, barrel cut down to 14.5 and FH added
