Actually I am NOT sorry. I have taken this gun out 5 times in the last 6 weeks and have had zero malfunctions and am getting 2 inch grps @ 100 yds with a cheap red dot sight. It seems like there are only a very few amount of shooters who keep complaining about "what a piece of crap these guns are" But I beleive the majority of us are satisfied and therefore we don't have any reason to post complaints all the time. So not many AR fans seem to get any positive reveiws posted and I am fixin to change that by saying I love my C-15 amd have shot over 800 rds of the following ammo types: S. African, S&B, Lake Cities M193, Armscorp, Coyote, PMP, PMC, Hornaday, and used Orlite mags and thermold mags and USGI mags and even a 9 rd Bushmaster mag and zero malfunctions. There I said it!! Now you all can flame away and tell me how I am a lier and I am just plain lucky or whatever. John

You're just lucky.

Sorry, couldn't resist.

It's always good to know that all the stories you hear don't go for the full line of Carbon rifles. I certainly like the looks of them. Maybe someday, if I hear more good stories, I'll have to shell out the dough for one.

Thanks for sharing.

Really lucky! They're a nice novelity but I've heard way too many horor stories about failures of one kind or another.

Are you guy's talking about the Peice's from Professional Ordinance Inc.? Is a Bushmaster better?

I'm with you, John232! Mine kicks ass, finally!

Initialy, the thing was a piece of crap, but they've fixed whatever was wrong with them. I believe the chambers were too tight on initial models, but I dunno. Since I got it back 3 months ago I've put over 700 rounds through it, mostly UMC, or British SS109, with only 1 FTE, and that was when someone else was shooting it, so I don't count it. I did find that mine doesn't like orlite mags, but it loves thermolds, so that's what I use. I've yet to try any USGI mags. I love my dissipator, and I trust it more, but the Carbon is catching up!

I kinda like mine. But still I trying go to the range this weekend to test out my mods. It is not my favorite, yet.
