Where do i find the tiny buffer tubes? Is bushmaster the only one that makes them anymore? and if so i have to buy one of there bolt carriers too right?

I too am new to this. Is this where the "pig tail" gas tube works brst fot these short systems?

BM makes the only short BT that works so that is the only one I would use. Yes, you need either their modified BC or modify your own.


There is no need for the pig tail gas tube on a pistol if the gas port is done correctly.
That is a $80 expense better used for other items, like ammo.

You will have to call Bushmaster to order the parts:

#AZ15078 -- $7.95 -- Buffer Tube
#AZ15009 -- $16.95 -- Buffer
#AZ15012 -- $2.95 -- Buffer Spring
#AZ15267 -- $75.95 -- Bolt Carrier w/Key installed

My AR pistol have a 6.5" barrel and a modified gas port. It works very well.

Do they have a special bolt carrier (i.,e. is it the one for the carbon-15 series?) or will a standard one work?

Special bolt carrier, standard one will not work.

The bolt carrier is the same one that is in bushmaster's carbon 15 pistols. There is a picture here about halfway down the page by BadgerArms.

Well hot damn, that is a nifty solution!

I used the Bushmaster buffer system when I built my AR Pistol and really like it.

What kind of upper is that??

What all did you use to build your pistol exactly.
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 1:10:11 PM EDT
that would be the DPMS LoPro flattop upper, very great upper BTW.
Link Posted: 9/20/2005 4:48:18 PM EDT
Here's mine


The Lo Pro upper is sweet. After seeing JackDRipper pics, I had to include one in my build.
I love the Bushmaster buffer system. It is short, lightweight and works great.

Nice looking pistol! It does look familiar, glad I could help. Sure is fun to shoot.

Nice build, where did you get the foam cover for the BushMaster buffer tube?
Link Posted: 9/21/2005 6:17:20 PM EDT
The foam overtube came from ACE

ANyone know what the overall length is with a flash hider, 7.5" barrel, and Bushmaster buffer? My guess is under 20"?
Link Posted: 9/22/2005 8:37:49 PM EDT
[Last Edit: 9/22/2005 8:39:40 PM EDT by JackDRipper]
Mine is 3/8 " longer than your estimate, 20 3/8 inches long overall.

Is the BM buffer tube metal or plastic?

Plastic, for $7 I bought an extra one in case I ever have any problems with it.

That setup looks very nice!

Can you still break the pistol open like a normal AR with that BM buffer set up? It looks like the spring would interfere with the upper receiver being able to swing up and away from the lower.
Link Posted: 9/24/2005 9:09:31 PM EDT
The buffer tube, buffer and spring have to be removed before the upper can be opened or removed.
