Just picked up a new Bushmaster Modular Carbine, brought it home and grabbed several boxes of ammo to sight in and check out. I set up at 25 meters and opened fire. Damn I thought, 8" low??

By the time I got the weapon to shoot point of aim, the front sight post base was 20 clicks below flush! This is the rifle with the folding Bushmaster front and rear sights. I tried a several different brands and bullet weights, all with the same effect.

I wondered if it could just be me, so I grabbed my retired Army drill instructor brother in law. He had the same trouble as I did. Anyone one have any ideas? I know I can send it back to Bushmaster and get it fixed, but dang, I just got it and want to play [>(]

I can not think of a reason that is a quick fix. Bushmaster will send a pick up for the gun so it does not cost you return shipping. I say send it back. STS

Wll I sent it off to Bushmaster. I'll se what they have to say, when it comes back.

Before you go sending it back, remember, Bushy makes 5 different front sight posts. Two are standard height NM sights that vary in width, one is the original A1 style round post, one is the standard height A2 square post and one is a .040 higher A2 post to help match-up the Bushy front sight tower to after market rear sights designed for the M4. Your front flip-up may have come with the .040 higher sight. I don't have the spec for the standard post height, nor the means to measure one, but if someone else does, check the height of your front post. If it turns out you have the .040 higher sight, I will send you a standard height out of my parts box to try. If it works, you can trade me your .040 post straight up. BBossman Out OK, I just made my feeble attempt at measuring a standard Bushy front sight post. Best I can figure it's about .280 high from the top of the flat to the tip, so the +.040 would be, duh, .320 high. Let me know what you got.

When I had Ron from Bushmaster on the phone, I measured the sight. I used the "depth probe" on my dial calipers and came up with about .269". Ron said "that's a few thousandths out of spec" but added that souldn't make the kind of difference I was seeing. Ron implied that he wasn't really interested in troubleshooting it, so if I sent it back, he'd just replace the whole upper. That's fine with me, because I kind of buggered up the top of the folding front sight assembly. Mike Anyway it went out UPS Monday and I've been following the tracking number to the poin tof obsession [%|] my wife thinks I'm nuts.

Very interesting Michael,I also have a new bushmaster that is shooting to the right and have the back sight cranked almost all the way to the left. At the range I was thinking it was possibly me, my hold or somthing weird. When I finally got it cranked in my son shot at the same point. One thing I did notice though is a build up of copper in two of the rifling grooves on the right hand side for about 1/4" at the muzzle. bad crown ???? I am asumming you took it back to the dealer to have it picked-up ? let me know how long it takes to get it back. [8] p.s. I have the 20" n.m.
Link Posted: 8/3/2003 8:22:36 PM EDT
I hadn't noticed any copper in the barrel. But I really hadn't considered the possibility of a bad barrel either. Bushmaster talked about a 1 or 2 day turn around and it's 3 days in transit. I'm in South Bend which is north central Indiana. I'm hoping to have it back by the end of the week. I plan on calling tomorrow to see if they have a status update for me. It's really depressing just sitting here with only my lower. Mike
Link Posted: 8/16/2003 6:49:16 AM EDT
Hooray! I finally got my upper back! Apparently the gas block was milled out of spec, causing the flip up front sight to not fully seat. So everything is all better now. It's off to do some shooting. Mike

-------- 8" inches low sounds about right for the carbine off mechnical zero at 25 yards. But 20 clicks up elevation on the front site? That's not right, should be more like 5 or 6. Glad you got it fixed.

James_Gang, Check fire. Perhaps you are confused with the 100 yd values. At 25 yards, an A1 (5 pos post) carbine has a El come up of 0.34" and the A2 (4 pos post) carbine has an El come up of 0.42". 8"/0.42"=19.05 clicks and 8"/0.34"=23.53 clicks.

------- Perhaps Tweak. I just zeroed a new Bushy carbine the other day at 25 meters, per the instructions with the A-2 sight on the Bushmaster 25 meter zero target. 1st shots were low 8 squares, and left 4 squares(oh the squares on the Bushy target are half an inch right?). So that's actually an impact of 4" low and 2" left of center at mechanical zero. So I wonder if the guy is talking inches or blocks. So, my first string was low 8 squares, and left 4 squares, so I cranked 8 clicks up front sight elevation and 4 clicks right windage per the instructions. No joy. Therefore, after 19 rounds, from mechanical zero my final sight adjustment was 5 clicks up elevation and 8 clicks right windage to get in the center of the target. Go figure. BTW, I was using LC M-193. I figured the difference was caused by the length difference of the carbine barrel, normal variation, etc.... I'll tell ya, I'm glad it wasn't 20 clicks, that damn front sight post was stiff as hell trying to turn it with a round. Real happy with the quality of the Bushmaster though. Very similar to the old A-1 I used to carry in the Marines, but better. I especially like the A-2's sights and the new handguards. You got a ballistics chart or copy of a range card for battle sight zero on this rifle?

------- I read on the Bushmaster site that they were now boresighting the sights and barrels of all rifles leaving the factory. What I understand is they do this to ensure the sights will print with a given barrel irregardless of the variations one gets with barrel threads, etc... In other words you wont have a rifle that shoots point of aim at mechanical zero, but you will have a rifle who's sights can be adjusted to get the impact of the rounds at point of aim. You know anything about this Tweak?

------ M-16 A-2, '25 meter' sight in target. 1/2 inch squares. Bushmaster is shipping these with new rifles. The instructions are to use small peep with one click up range adjustment(400 yards). Then one click front sight elevation for each block, or one click windage for each 1/2 inch block to obtain battle sight zero and the center of the target. Which I assume is approximately dead on at 300 meters, a little high at 100, etc..... Yes of course sight radius. I understand the barrel thread variance also effects the sights to a higher degree on shorter barrels. Yes for trajectory at various ranges. I know this varies depending upon the ammunition, but I shoot 55 grain M193 equivalent. Thanks for the info.

---------- Pressure on the barrel from the barrel nut/receiver threads. Dependent upon which side the pressure is on when one headspaces and torques the barrel, the gun will naturally shoot to that side or up or down. As the front sight is mounted to the barrel, and the rear sight is mounted to the receiver. The effect is slight, but at range it has an effect. It's similar to the effect of free floating a rifle barrel on a precision rifle vs. one that is not. In some rifles this pressure can alter the barrels alignment to the point of the rounds printing outside the sights ability to correct. My understanding is that is why Bushmaster is now laser bore sighting all barrel receiver assemblies to make sure the sights have enough adjustment prior to the rifle leaving the factory.

I tried to zero my A2S, my way, without reading the owners manual, and got the same results as above.(my wind knob was all the way to the right) Like James_Gang mention in his reply, I did that, it did the trick. Windidge know sits dead center now, another things is, I was using the large peep hole at first, instead of the small peep hole. Got it all worked out, but was disapointed at first. Front sight, had to lower in a few clicks. TG

------ Yes you're correct, I rechecked. It's 3 clicks windage for each box, 1 click elevation. No matter I had to do it fast and got it in the center of the bullseye at 25 meters. You're right, it's 3/8 +1, not 400, and 3/8's not 1/2 inch. I'm new to this A-2 drill. But I got the idea, get the point of impact at point of aim at 25 meters with 1 click up range elevation and small peep. No barrel thread, the barrel nut and receiver threads. The threads can cock barrels slightly to one side or another, or up and down. That's why each rifle needs to be zeroed independently from mechanical zero. As well the difference between shooters sight picture. No room here to check POI at the range. I currently have no access to an approprite 300 meter range.

I use a lazer boresighter which comes with a setup target which will let you 0 your sights at 50 or 100 yards. Its real easy to use, you place the lazer into the barrel with an adapter and set up the sighting in target at 25 feet from the front of the barrel, the gun must be securly held in some sort of cradle.You make your adjustments on your sights and thats it.Go to the range and the most you will have to do is minor tweaking. Works with open sights and scopes.If you use one you will know how much of a help they are, if not you will love it when you try one.The kits are about $60 or so.

You're a class act Tweak. Didn't take long to figure that one out. I wont be needin' anymore of your help. I'm not sure I needed any in the first place. BTW, you put many precision rifles together? Accuracy is accuracy. I been working on and shooting precision bolt guns for the past couple o' years, 'till I decided to aquire this M-4 clone. Nice little gun. No different here, except the sheer number of moving parts, lockup and group sizes. That's why rifles come equipped with adjustable sights in the first place. No manufacturer has found a way to put them all together exactly alike. I call 'em quirks. Like people they all got 'em. Too bad you decided to turn it into a personal matter. It's your problem entirely. Keep up the good work, and good luck bro. And remember, be careful out there.

A couple hundred OAI UM-1/PCR-1 and assorted other "precision" pieces while I worked there. But they weren't really that precise.
I been working on and shooting precision bolt guns for the past couple o' years

Too bad you decided to turn it into a personal matter. It's your problem entirely.

Your posts made it my business and you're absolutely correct, you're posts are now my problem since you refuse to accept responsibility for fact checking them.
Keep up the good work, and good luck bro. And remember, be careful out there.

Same to you James_Gang, you be extra careful out there, I so wouldn't want anything to happen to you. BTW, I'm not Rambo but I do know a rambo if that helps. [ed. for speeling]

-------- I'm just glad I was able to help somebody. I didn't mean to offend you. I hope you'll accept my apologies. But thanks for pointing out my error in measurement. It happens to us all from time to time. Class act.
