The new Bushmaster "Superlight 16" upper I ordered at the BRC is shipping today!!! One of the first production build uppers. Bushmaster gave us a 10 percent discount, free shipping and because I begged they're gonna ship it Second Day Air FOR FREE!! Damn I love those guys! Gonna have it in time for ETH's HunGunFunInTheSun. Shawn's Cav Arms lower is waiting for it to get here! Woo-Hoo! Get to sight it in at the party. It's been a tough week and I needed a pick-me-up. This did it! Did I say THANKS Jarrod!!??

Nah...the complete Superlight 16 upper is a brand new part so it's not in the catalog yet. A drawing of the barrel assembly is on their website but that's all there is for now. I'll post some pics when it gets here. [url]www.bushmaster.com/shopping/barrel-assemblies/abbl-16sla.asp[/url] Bushmaster is building the Superlight uppers as pre-ban only so I have some work to do. At the BRC I got one of Kurt Wala's A2 brakes and a LeVang brake to try. And ETH's sounds like the place.

Dunno...they have all the parts. I talked to Jarrod a couple weeks ago about getting a post-ban version and he said the only way they're making them now is in pre-ban configuration. Didn't ask but I wonder if there's a reason behind that??

That's what I meant when I said I have some work to do. I'll probably mill the whole lug off. John at K2 Sports wants to take off just the latch ears. I don't want the dead weight so it's most likely coming off. "But I do have a pre-ban to test it on." We're dangerous men. We'll strike again. But first, Let's have a beer. [:D]

Don't you just love buying something and having to go through the time and expense of immediately having to alter it in order to have it legal!! Especially removing a piece of metal that holds a knife! [BD] What a bunch of retards we have running the show for us! Hey be sure to permanently pin that muzzle attachment on too you reckless devil you.. [:D]

When you get it, can you weigh it for us with the cav lower attached? I know what the upper weighs (it's written down somewhere), gotta buddy with one. Curious as to what the whole package weighs. Did you put an A1 2 or 3 upper on it? M4-AK

It's an A3 flattop (pardon the redundancy). Glad to put both upper and lower separated on a scale and report. I'll post pics and details at the same time. The upper and lower have to be separated since the upper won't be "post-banned" yet. Upper should be here early next week.

Don't go through all that trouble with the barrel Arock Just mail it to me. [:D]

Arock, You beat me to it. I've been thinking about putting together the same gun. What do you plan on using for sights? Irons? Should be sweet!

Lightweight carbines are AWESOME! I have a pre-ban Colt Lightweight and it is my favorite AR - even more so then my M4gery. I am sure you will like your new rifle! Eric
