The recall is only to replace the firing pin with a lighter one, and the firing pin spring with a heavier one. The new firing pin has a dull brushed silver finish, (titianium) IIRC, the old firing pin was more of a shiny chrome like finish. I had an issue with my barrel wrench handle getting loose. They replaced the screw with a different one and left a note that that change was made.I just got my acr back from Bushmaster. Does any one know of a way to inspect the acr to see exactly what was done. I wish Bushmaster tell us exactly what was done for the recall.
Actually, they wanted all the complete rifles back. Maybe they were checking for other issues that showed up during internal testing and wanted to be sure they were not out on the street. (Just thinking out loud)Looks like the magnet test passes. Thanks for all of the replies.
I still suspect that more was done to the acr for the recall. When I was on the phone with Bushmaster about sending the acr back, they insisted that I send the entire rifle back.
I believe you are correct. It is the only thing that makes sense. IMHOBM has a bunch of lawyers on their staff.... liability prevented them from letting monkeys like us do our own upgrade I think the spring what changed form what I read here. Somebody scream at me if I'm mistaken.
Actually they would probably look at it and say like I did, look at the nice job this guy did on this stickmine is still pre-recall, i wonder what they would say if i sent mine back lol
When I called them back in October, they were unmovable on just sending parts. Like said elsewhere on the forum, I'm sure it is lawyer driven. If nothing more to verify that all the heavy firing pins are returned and disposed of.i talked to bm yesterday, the supervisor is supposed to call me sometime to discuss them sending me a fire pin, the person who answered the phone seemed pretty cool about me chopping the rifle and said i could send it in though but he sounded like they probably would send me it instead...
