Thanks for the heads up! I've been looking for a lightweight, carbine upper, so this should work great. I put my order in and it looks like they are still in stock - we'll see if it ships out today...

Glad to help

Did your order go through?

I got a shipping conformation and they will send a tracking number later today.

I must admit that I ordered one for me before I posted this, just wanted to make sure that I got one.

I received an order confirmation and "We will send tracking information as soon as your order ships." So, I'll just have to see if they actually send it out. They are still showing up as "Available" though, so that's a good sign. I hope they don't have a problem sending an upper to CA...

Who ordered one?

Just curious how many they had in stock.

ledcomp
02-02-2009, 12:07 PM
I just called Midway, they told me that they still have 32 in stock.

Must be nice to get that quantity in a shipment.

titan
02-02-2009, 12:08 PM
I did but it does not tell you how many are in stock.

Is that MSRP pricing?

titan
02-02-2009, 12:21 PM
That's cheaper than getting them directly from BM. I picked up two.

yoda888
02-02-2009, 12:22 PM
Titan, can you send me the link to the upper kit at the BM site? I can't find it. Thanks!


Darn it, I have a Stag 2ht on order too!

I guess I'm in for 1!

I guess I can always sell either one later on.

Looks like we are in the same boat, I have an order with Rock River.

I am going to wait till the Bushmaster arrives, Then I will decide what to do with the RRA order.

My 2ht won't be here probably for another 20 weeks. This should keep me entertained for awhile I guess. :D

Looks like it's a complete upper, so all I need to do is slap my complete RRA lower on and it's fun time! :cool2:

Thanks for the original posting w/ the link!:thumbsup:

Is that MSRP pricing?

MSRP $1270

yoda888
02-02-2009, 1:14 PM
That price is for a complete rifle (FFL required) though.

How much is just the complete upper?

MSRP $1270

aznocstyle
02-02-2009, 1:17 PM
$590

ledcomp
02-02-2009, 1:18 PM
MSRP $1270

Oops... My bad

djleisure
02-02-2009, 1:18 PM
$590

Can you post a link to that info? Is that a COMPLETE upper w/ BCG and all? ...and was that any time after December?

aznocstyle
02-02-2009, 1:23 PM
Im not sure if its complete w/BCG. I just went to bushmasters website, then products catalog, then upper assemblies. Sorry dont know how to post links.

Cool - thanks. It's worth $100 markup to actually have it in my hand. So, I still think this is a good deal.
(and it's still not clear that the one on the Bushmaster site includes the BCG, but it probably does)

yoda888
02-02-2009, 1:28 PM
But which one is it? So we paid above MSRP? The good news is that midway has a no questions asked return policy. (hope they don't give us grief!)

vega
02-02-2009, 1:31 PM
Check here:http://www.bushmaster.com/products.asp?cat=6

Part no: BURA2B 16M4

If BCG is included it will say on the description.

Midway told me that it comes with the BCG and CH

djleisure
02-02-2009, 1:39 PM
Oh yeah, I meant the one on the Bushmaster site. Sorry, getting kinda confusing now. :D

aznocstyle
02-02-2009, 1:43 PM
the bushmaster site specifies "no bolt" on the uppers that dont have it. So i think the one on BM site also includes BCG.

titan
02-02-2009, 2:09 PM
These come with the CH and BCG. They are not on the BM site.$590 is less CH and BCG. I just got two of these from BM in Nov 08 @ $725 each delivered.

djleisure
02-02-2009, 2:13 PM
Good to know! Thanks for clearing that up, titan!

Much thanks to Ledcomp!!! I picked up 2 more, Now I am done ; )

I wish I had a dollar for everytime I said that!

ledcomp
02-02-2009, 8:06 PM
Glad to help you guys.

Now I need to find a deal on a CTR and buffer. I kind of spent my play money for a bit, we have a baby on the way.

I will post pics when it is done.

Mine is on the truck and on the way! Thanks again, ledcomp!

So excited!

Bushmaster direct's backorders don't appear to be as bad as some other manufacturers. I ordered two complete upper assemblies just after the election from Bushmaster direct and received both of them in 2.5 weeks (even though they told me it would be 8-16 weeks over the phone).

bombadillo
02-03-2009, 6:22 PM
Who's gonna be the first to sell theirs???

ledcomp

Got my upper today and it Looks good. :)
I did not have time to put it on the lower.

yoda888
02-06-2009, 12:36 PM
Dang it, where's mine? I ordered on the same day too!

One interesting thing is that the tracking shows that it arrived in the Bay Area 1 day after I ordered it. Too bad UPS is just sitting on it right now. :( Scheduled to be delivered on Monday.

djleisure
02-06-2009, 12:57 PM
Got mine today too - looks great! Can't wait to shoot it... :)

Rick530
02-06-2009, 1:02 PM
Mine was scheduled to be delivered but UPS dropped it off today. Usually there late delivering, not early.

vega
02-06-2009, 1:09 PM
Residential deliveries are usually late in the afternoon to early evening.

bombadillo
02-06-2009, 1:22 PM
Mine's already out of my hands before I get it. Sold it for 800 bucks to a friend. Told him how much I paid and he was more than happy to hand me 75 bucks extra for it.

yoda888
02-06-2009, 3:02 PM
I have a stag 2ht on order too. But who knows when that will show up. The question is should I sell this Bushy to subsidize my Stag? Or should I just shoot it and when the stag arrives figure out what to do? Or heck, get another lower and build 2 of these bad boys! :D (I don't think I have a need for 2 of these, let's be honest here.)

Given that, if you have your hands on either the 2ht or this Bushy right now, which would you keep and why?

bombadillo
02-06-2009, 3:20 PM
I just got my Bushmaster and I like the stag better personally. The only thing that would stop me is if stag is a .223 only rifle. I know the bushmaster is a 5.56x45 capable upper and can shoot surplus ammo so if thats an issue, just go bushy and call it a day.

!@#$
02-06-2009, 3:27 PM
many more problems from stag than bushmaster.

vega
02-06-2009, 6:16 PM
And the bashing starts....;)

bombadillo
02-06-2009, 9:32 PM
Its fine either way, i'm not getting either!

yoda888
02-06-2009, 9:54 PM
I thought the stag is 5.56 as well?

Actually, here's a link to the stag web-site: http://www.stagarms.com/product_info.php?cPath=14_24&products_id=243

Awesome, even better. I thought they were only chambered in .223 for some reason but I was mistaken.
