Neither Bushmaster, nor Bud's, advertise this as a "carbon fiber" AR but several reviewers call it such. It is a carbon COMPOSITE, not carbon fiber. If it were truly a carbon fiber, it would cost significantly more, almost even unaffordable. This is a good entry-level weapon for those new to the game. The trigger pull is pretty stout, but the firearm is exactly as advertised. I have modified the weapon to be exactly what I needed, adding a bit to the overall cost, but as it stands, this was a good deal.

Just got my rifle today, 7 days after purchase. This is my first weapon ever, but I am no stranger to the AR-15 platform since I spent 6 years in Marine Corps. I love this rifle, it feels really light in the hand, yet sturdy to the point where you know it won't break. I've put about 50 rounds through it so far and not one malfunction yet. The red dot sight that it comes with isn't the greatest but it gets the job done. I recommend investing in a nice set of iron sights though. Buds service was great and shipping time was ok. I'd recommend buds.

Just bought the gun, took it to the range and within 3 rounds it malfunctioned. After another two rounds it completely stopped cycling rounds. Had the armorer come out and take a look at it and the gas feed tube and bolt carrier were misaligned, damaging both enough to stop working. Now have to go through the hassle of sending it to Bushmaster. So far, not impressed.

This is a great product. I did a lot of research across the web before making this purchase. I heard a lot of bashing but it was always from people who had never shot a round from one. All the reviews I read from people that owned one (the newer version with the forward assist and dust cover) loves the machine. Its light, easy to fire, and holds together well through ruff handling. If you are new to AR's and want to save a few bucks, try this rifle. Its worth it!

THIS RIFLE IS PROBABLY ONE THE FEW AVAILABLE THAT WILL GIVE YOU THE MOST BANG FOR YOUR BUCK! LEGENDARY BUSHMASTER QUALITY IS EVIDENT EVERYWHERE IN THIS RIFLE. THE CARBON FIBER COMPONENTS HAVE REDUCED THE WEIGHT SIGNIFICANTLY. A FULL 30 RD MAG GIVES THE WEIGHT OF WHAT A STANDARD AR WOULD WEIGH WITH NO CLIP. I MOUNTED THE RED DOT SCOPE AND WAS HIITING GLASS BOTTLES AT 100 YARDS WITH NO ADJUSTING!! GOOD QUALITY OUT OF THE BOX. IF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR A RELATIVELY INEXPENSIVE AR TO ADD OR START YOUR COLLECTION, START WITH ONE OF THESE. YOU WON'T GO WRONG.

I just picked up my Bushmaster Carbon 15 earlier today and I'm so excited to shoot it tomorrow. I ordered it on Sunday, my FFL dealer received it Wednesday, and I picked it up today. I'm always pleased with Bud's service, always lightning fast! I don't know much about their customer service because I've never had an issue. This is my first AR and I really like the red dot scope. Ammo is cheap to so that's a plus. Just picked up some at Walmart for 7 and some change for a box of 20. I will repost after I take it to the range tomorrow!
