Hi all,

I have a Bushmaster that I would like to find some info on.

1. Is there anyway to find out if the upper on it is the original?

2. If it's not the original, how can you find out what was the original?

3. When was it made (I've email Bushmaster with no luck)?

It's serial number L0004XX

Thanks for any help.

You can call Bushmaster customer service and try to find out what configuration the rifle left the factory in (or if it left as a stripped receiver).

Also check the barrel for markings. It should be markded "B MP 5.56" then the twist if it's a not one of their stainless or varmint barrels.

Call customer service, they get too many e-mails to return info like that in a timely manner. I find I get better results by calling.

I tried calling with no luck, sent another email.
Got a replay back saying they had to go to the archives and should have something for me Monday.

The barrel is marked:
B MP 5.56 NATO 1/9 H BAR

Barrel is definately Bushmaster.

So how are you liking the carbine?

I've had it for several years. Always been a good shooter, never a problem.
The main reason I bought it was the price was right and it had such a low serial number.
I have a couple others that I've built, but this one is my baby

That is an old one, let us know the date once you find out. Been trying to figure out when manufacturing started, and when.

Oldest I heard of was L030XXX

No luck?

don't sweat it, they will send you the info you asked for. It took a couple weeks to get a answer for mine.
