Just got back home from a local gun shop, Cactus was a sweetheart and let me go ahead and bring this baby home with us. :cool:
Monday, Cactus and I will be going to the ranch for a week, so my new AR and AK will get a work out. :D



When speed and light weight are needed, this “” carbine is the right choice. Carbine length, ribbed handguards keep swing weight to a minimum and the handguards, pistol grip and trapdoor style A2 buttstock are all molded of rugged thermoset polymer composite material. The heavy profile barrel, with mil. spec. chrome lined bore and chamber, offers exceptional accuracy for its length and is externally manganese phosphate finished for complete protection against corrosion and rust - as are all critical steel parts of the carbine. The latest M16A2 sight system, fitted with a dual flip-up aperture for either short range shots at moving targets or long distance accuracy, offers adjustment for windage and elevation. The elevation knob is graduated from 300 to 800 meters so that range adjustments may be made without the need to calculate bullet drop. The forged, lightweight 7075T6 aircraft quality aluminum receivers have all M16A2 design improvements including cartridge case deflector, last round bolt hold-open and raised ridges for magazine release button protection. The XM15 E2S “” Carbine is shipped complete with 10 round magazine, operation, safety, and instruction manual and carrying sling - all in our lockable, Bushmaster hard shipping case.

Now I need to get some 30rd mags for this baby, any suggestions??

[center]Congrats! [headbang] I found that Steve at slaflamm@twcny.rr.com has the best selection and he is quick with your order. E-mail him for a price list. If you have some time you can order some USGI mags on the equipment exchange for around $12 ea. and a can of perma-slik from Georgia Precision [url]http://www.georgiaprecision.com/cart/items/Magazineparts.htm[/url]and do your own refinishing project. Steve has green followers also. Here's mine. [/center][center][img]http://home.nc.rr.com/blueshockey77/perma_slik.jpg[/img][/center]

Thanks, GI Mags is the way to go? Ammo deals out there? Oh, and accessories?? :) TG

Almost everyone on this board will recommend GI mags. I like Okay and Sanchez models but definitely USGI. I've only bought ammo from ammoman.com and wholesale hunter. Lake City XM193 1000 rounds at $199 shipped at ammoman. You get your ammo fast and he's great to deal with! If you check the ammunition board you can usually catch a sale somewhere with the link posted. What type of accessories are you looking into?

Congrats! Now wait till you see how much you spend on ammo, mags, and accessories.

Stick to the USGI mags. Lots of people are trying the British ones, I haven't personally. As for ammo, ammoman is probably the best way to go. He has some of the best, consistent, pricing out there. Shipping is included. At the last gun show, I bought some ammo from a company called Miwall. Their prices were really good, and no shipping. [url]http://www.miwallcorp.com/miva/merchant.mv[/url]

Congrats on the new Bushy. I agree, USGI are the only mags to use.
