hey fella's. I'm 18 and just graduated high school, for a graduation present I recently bought my first AR.. and probably not my last.. A Bushy M-4 Carbine postban.. And I got two Sanchez 30rd mags with it.
I've been lurking through these forums for a couple weeks now and finally decided to join. I've got lots to learn about the AR-15 and I've never really seen one up close until I bought mine. I love it.. Easy to dissasemble and clean, it has functioned flawlessly thus far. (About 120rds or so) and the rifle is VERY light just what I was looking for, for plinking/home defense.
I do have a couple questions, especially regarding uppers.. I am thinking of purchasing a 16" VMatch carbine upper from Bushmaster in the next 6 months and was wondering, is it really neccesary to get the bolt essembly/charging handle, or just use the one from my M4? It would save quite a bit of money..
Have a good one!
