What did you find out? I have to agree on the WTF about the trigger, especially since the entire bolt carrier group was replaced. I"ve noticed on their web site that they are selling uppers now and I suspect that that A) sales are not what they expected and B) this might be an attempt to part with some of Bushmaster's business, as there is little if any waiting for uppers from them and they are of good quality and pricing. Before the Tuscon shooting there were just too many AR type manufacturers out there and some of them were going to go under. We will have to see if the Kenyan will give them a new lease on life.

I'm trying to decide on what AR to buy. There are a million out there to choose from. I'm willing to spend a little money if its worth it. Some of the issues I've herd about piston systems (carrier tilt) have me questioning what to do. I really like the Sr 556. Whats the good, the bad and the ugly?

Ruger has now corrected the problem. Mine now shows no sign of CT. Fatastic weapon and extremely accurate.

I have a Bushmaster and it has been completely trouble free, accurate and built to last. You can't go wrong with one!
