Hello to all you gurus out there!

Like the topic says i have a brand new Bushmaster A3 20", and i just fired my first 80rnds off it..
Is that rifle supposed to make a funny sound when firing? Instead of a loud bang it goes like... hmmm... "Boink?" every time when i pull the trigger.

After 20 rounds i was laughing so hard that "Boink":ing sound that i actually missed one @ 100 meters :)

It that normal behavior for my rifle?-)

Normal. That's the buffer spring


You can grease it up if you can't stand the sound

Welocme to ArfCom Jussi


You can also just lube the hell outta it if you dont have grease and it will help too.

Roger... I fired another 100 rnds off and got kinda used to that "Boink"... Man, that's a funny sound... My friends was about 15feet away from me when i first fired one, even they went "LoL" on that Boinking sound =)

heh... Maybe that settles down after a few hundred rounds =)

Your new Bushy is working 100% normal. It's a good sound. You can try grease on the buffer spring but the rifle will shoot the same. Welcome to ARFCOM and the home of the Black Rifle. ENJOY!!!!
