I bought the gun.
using all the extra money I had saved and some out of my latest paycheck. I hope it was worth it. almost getting buyers remorse. lol.
last night I took the time to take it apart and lost all the pieces to it. just kidding.
I did take it apart ,and did a good cleaning on it. this is what the book sugested to do with a new bushmaster. to get rid of all the excess oil and any debree in the barrel.
its all back to gether and action works and fucntions like it did before I dissasembled it. lol.
I have not shot it yet.
and I would like to get some lighter amo to break it in with.
I bought 100 rounds of 5.56 amo for it. I forgot the exact name of what kind it is. but I do know that it is 55 or 56 grain. with about 3200 fps full metal jacket pointed. no holo point, and no lead tip. the tip is not painted.
I konw this round has been replaced with a newer bullet of the same kind that I think has a red painted tip. I am not sure about this, till I go back home to check the specks fo the bullets.
so I bought some empty 223 cases, and I have some MRI 3031 powder with 50 grain bullets # 2245 sp hornady bullets.
only problem is the store I was at was out of the primers I needed for this . lol. thats my luck.
I am realy flat broke, no money.
and trying to be very considerate of using any credit cards.
and I know every one will probley frown and start scoldign me for doing this, while I was at wallmart, I ended up buying a bushnell sportsman 4-12x40 scope.
for some reason wallmart on line store dose not have this scope on thier web site yet ?
and I will probley regret doing this and I know every one here tried to tell me to spend a little more to get a good scope.
with the funds I have left, $79.00 for this scope did not seem too bad.
I have a bushnell on my 30-30 marlin ever action, and I can hit 1 inch dot at about 75 yeards easy. and that scope has been doing very well for me.
this new one I bought seems to be a little better with the extrea option of Adjustable Objective (yds).
I guess I will find that out when I am able to get out and shoot it.
I still want to buy the iron sights for it. I realy like peep sights and if I can train my eye again to shoot with peep sights again, I will be confident to be able to hit what ever I need to with iron peep sights.
I also had ordered 2 20 round clips for $ 19.00 apiece last week, they came in the mail the same day I bought the gun.
the gun, to me, actualy looks better in real life than it dose in the the pictures.
next day off from work, I should be able to break this gun in.
any sugestions or comments would be appriciated.
also, any comments on breaking the gun in will be appriciated too. I just plan on going out and shooting about 5 to 10 rounds threw it. take it apart , clean it a few times. shoot another 5 to 10 ruonds , and clean it again. repeating this about 3 times or more should be good ?
some where I read that motor oil 10w-30w is what some are using to oil the insides of the gun.
what do you guys suggest.
