Hi! I just got my new Bushmaster last saturday. I was on the waitlist for 2 months. I did most of my research looking through the archives of AR15.com before I placed my order in. I have to thank everyone on this forum for all the valuable info.

I changed the handguard to a Magpul MOE and added a TangoDown stubby vertical grip.
I'm still waiting for a Magpul MOE grip and a Troy BUIS. I'm also contemplating on getting an Eotech 516.
I've also cut the foam on my Pelican 1720 (albeit it's a mediocre first attempt).

I see the mags, but remember the ammo - ammo - ammo.

Be safe and welcome.

I definitely will. Sadly that won't be until next week. I have to go on a 6-day trip this friday. I'm really excited to take it to the range.

Yeah, I know. The 15-round rule is kinda bums me out. It's hard to get 15-rounders. I'm looking at modified 20-round PMags.

By the way, anyone here know who does custom engraving on the lowers?

Nope, those are Falcon Ergo Polymer rails. I added them to the 6 and 10 o'clock positions.

Nice set up man!

You should get you a couple 30rd magazines. O, wait...

I forgot. You live in hell...

I know. I'm trying to get some 20-round PMags to modify down to 15 rounds. Modded 30-round mags attract too much attention here.

Here's my Bushmaster now:

15 rounds is 5 more than we get... Kalifornistan is hell, NJ is 3/4 of the way there.
ETA: Nice rifle BTW!
