So I got a Bushmaster C15 and I wanna change my stock upper receiver assembly to another one with a dust cover and forward assist and keep the barrel. Would I need to change the bolt carrier cause I realized it's a different looking type of bolt carrier. And when I do change it, would a different new upper assembly fit right in with the stock lower receiver? And if there is anything else I left out about this, please mention. Thanks guys

This is what my upper looks like:

Note: That's it is NOT a top loading, closed mag well. I do have BB.

I don't think the C15 carrier has the notches for the forward assist or the cutout for the dust cover detent so those two features would not work if you went to another upper receiver.

I'd get an RRA BCG before a DPMS. I've just never been impressed with DPMS quality. http://www.rockriverarms.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id=377

You could pick one of these up while you're at it... http://www.rockriverarms.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=category.display&category_id=279

Complete LMT or BCM carriers are $130. Don't buy cheap on a BCG when you can have top quality for the same $.

Nice deal. Would they happen to ship those to California?
