Both rifles shoot flawlessly. Not one malfunction to speak of. We shot Winchester 55 grain FMJ. It was very cold out today so we only shot about 200 rounds. The USGI mag I bought works great 30 rounds bang bang ...... not a single hickup. We did not get the rifles zerored in or even tryed to get groupings of any kind. Lucky for us there were targets still up at the range so we just blasted them. All in all a fun day plinking at the rage. These rifles are great. We came home a watched BHD while we cleaned them up. I am lucky to have bought Bushmasters for my first ARs everyone said you can't go wrong and you guys are oh so right.

Sounds like fun!
I had to work on one of my houses today instead of going to the range[:(]

One thing i noticed while cleaning the rifle, was a few scratches on the buffer plate in the stock. (I hope I described the part correctly) Its the metal plate in the buffer the bolt carier hits it right? is that normal or is there a problem.

It's completely normal.  Eventually, there will be a ring "scar" on the buffer from the bolt carrier, and many times the buffer is scratched by the carrier during assembly/disassembly.

Thanks Red Leg.  I had a feeling that it was normal, since the blolt carier hits it with some force something will show up. But as you know I am new to the AR scene and will have some questions for you guys.
Thanks for the help
