Is the bushy dissappator chrome lined, and what is it's conture, and is it subject to any operation problems due to a short amount of barrel past the gas block, or does it use a carbine position gas block underneath the handguard with a dummy gasblock front sight base near the muzzle?

Yes, Heavy, There is a carbine block under the handguards.

They also make a lighter version too. Go over to the industry section to Bushmaster and take a look to replies to my post. Amos HTH

i can't recall a single malfunction with mine...i would recommend an actual Bushmaster, as other companies usually use full-length gas tubes with an enlarged gas port (DPMS). BM is also the only chrome-lined DIssy i've seen. it is pretty heavy. consider the M4 or having it turned down by a smith.....

I have a Colt barrel that I cut from 20" to 16" about 10 years ago. I guess you could call it a Dissipator. It works just fine, no problems whatsoever. I have cut about 5 barrels in this way. I have had no problems and they all worked. They were all Colt barrels though. Scott

I bought a Dissapator upper about two years and 1000 rounds ago. The only problem that I ever had was with brass that had nicked rims. Those rounds would not drop into a case gauge either, so there was no fault with the rifle. Great for blasting but buy something else if you are looking for accuracy.
