Hello, I noticed in cheaper than dirt they sell used Orlite 30 round mags but they say will not fit in bushmaster, we'll I took a chance and ordered a couple and they seem ok, I have not fired them yet, but what do they mean I thought all of the AR's were just about the same.

Thanks for some help

On some of the Orelite mags that little rib that runs across the mag will hit the bottom of the mag well or bushy's. If your fit ok your good to go, if they don't want to seat all of the way just a very small amount of trimming on that rib will let it seat, a file, dremmel tool or even a small sharp blade will do it.

Earlier production lowers out to the 80,000 ser# range dont have as deeply a flared magwell as the later ones.
