Hi guys,

Im looking to sell my bushmaster carbon 15 with the bb configuration and a quad rail system I believe bought for over $100.

There nothing wrong with the rifle and Ive only shot maybe 800 rounds through it. It shot well and i liked it but I wanted to buy a stag arms model 4. I really liked the 20inch barrel and the fixed stock!

I just want to get the right number before offering it to some people i know.

Thanks in advanced

Haha thats funny, does she have a crv?

no, she has a 2000 chevy prism. looks like the head gasket blew and #1 spark plug well had a lot of burnt oil with no compression. To make matters worse the head needs to be re-surfaced. she just bought the car for only $300. I'll have it running for her by Monday with free labor of course :rolleyes:.

She shouldn't be in it more than 450-500

basic rules ive learned is always to resurface the bottom of the head, and top of the block to not end up with an uneven surface that will lead to another blown gasket within a couple thousand miles.. had my own share(s) of fun with that.

in terms of the usual pay out for the carbon 15, i'm seeing 6-650 as well..

My wife had her woofers blown, but never had her valves evaluated.
