Congrats!

To check any troubles of your brand of firearm go check in the Troubleshooting Forum.

Your Bushmaster might need a taller front sight, bring one just in case. Don't forget to bring a front sight adjustment tool, well if you don't a bullet tip works fine.

Check and make sure you have oiled the moving parts.

Bring plenty of different brands of ammo if possible to see which brand of ammo your guns prefers.

After your range trip, clean the inside of your bolt carrier and remove all carbon deposits.

Use copper solvent in your bores to remove copper residue, clean-lube everything and coat your guns with Break Free CLP or similar brands.

Have fun!

they are good, the bushy is most likely better built

before you go out and shoot give the riflr/carbine a light lubing

Are they carbines or 20" or one of each?

Congrats and have fun!

they are both carbines,i wanted one to shoot and one to put toys on.i had a ol-plinker for my first
ar but it was (cast) and shoot like a dog,but the k3b has a nice finish. first thing i am going to do is
get rid of the ugly carbine stock-looking into the ace shorty stock.
thanks
