hey folks

i just picked up a carbon 15 top loader for a very good price and was wondering if there was any other options on making modding it to receive regular mags ?? i read almost all the posts on cutting the magwell, but was wondering if anyone had exp with using a different oll. i would like to save the sealed lower if possible.

thanks in advance

If you'd like to save the sealed lower, you can just buy another one with an open mag well and install a bullet button on it, then attach your upper.

About 2 years ago, i bought an open mag Bushmaster Carbon15 stripped lower receiver from Cold War Shooters. I swapped it out and sold the sealed magwell. Nice light and handy rifle.

You can swap receivers, but some new parts will need to be purchased in order to do the swap 100%.

Opening up the magwell really isn't that hard either, just go slow.
