Fellow Calgunners' -

I have an older, seldom-shot complete Pre-ban Bushmaster 16" Heavy Barrel Upper for sale. I've always been more of a bolt guy and never shot the rifle much (I bought it before the evil black rifles were banned). The upper is in great condition with a round count somewhere between 500-750, which of course is nothing for a slow-fired chrome-lined barrel in 5.56mm. The bore looks new.

This rifle has a full 16" chrome-lined heavy barrel (not the short barrel with long flash suppressor as on the XM-177). I bought a "Shorty Look" Slipover Flash Suppressor when I bought the gun new from Bushmaster for that XM-177-look, and have misplaced the birdcage flash hider that came on it. The barrel is 1:9 and likes everything from 55grs. to 68grs. I haven't tried anything heavier.

I also replaced the front sight post and rear aperature with Trijicon (tritium) units, and although they still glow they are pretty weak (the rear actually works better this way). I no longer have the original units.

The complete Bolt Carrier Group is hard-chrome plated. I had this done right after I bought the rifle. The chrome plating came out great and the bolt and carrier slide like warm butter. They're also a breeze to clean.

The carry handle now has two (2) mounting holes (MILSPEC is one hole) and mounts ACOGs' rock-solid. When I initially bought my XM15 Pre-ban rifle from Bushmaster the groove in the carry handle was too narrow for the base of my ACOG TA11, so I sent the upper back to Bushmaster and they machined it out a bit.

While the upper was at Bushmaster I also had them drill a secondary mounting hole, then re-anodize the receiver so the new hole wouldn't oxidize. There are dark contact marks from my ACOG TA11 being mounted. I will leave the Harris Bipod Adapter Stud Swivel on the rifle.

Asking $550.00 Cash FTF in SoCal (I'm in Los Angeles) or $575.00 U.S. Postal Money Order (Priority Mail Insured w/Delivery Confirmation) in CONUS. The only trade I'm looking for would be (partial) for a Larue LT-706.
