Ok just ordered up a spare bolt and (2) firing pins:

Bolt $70
Firing Pins $8.50 each

Back Order 3-5 Weeks, but seeing as how they're just spares I can wait.

I did mention that I'd cancelled a previous order due their shifting Back Order dates on their barrel systems. He clarified that they're having issues getting barrel blanks but other parts are completely different. We can only hope.

6/7/11 Placed order

Well, that would explain (maybe) why we haven't seen a hint of caliber conversions. Please keep us posted.....

Ordered a handguard and some other goodies a couple weeks ago. Had no idea I'd have to wait so long. Emailed customer service twice w/ no response as to why no parts. Now I know why.

Yup, the BO wait is worse than putting in a form with the ATF and the pending release dates for the converison kits are even worse.

I'll keep the thread updated as this little order progress.

6/15/11 Notification from Bushmaster that Order has Shipped via UPS!

Very Cool, 6 Business Days to ship. Much better than the initial 3-5 week Back Order estimate.

That's not too bad. Thinking of ordering another bolt and pin myself along with a MIAD/MOE core for it.

Makes two of us. I would love to get a second barrel to be cut down and spiral fluted

lol you need a couple of parts there sir, the spiral fluting is sweet but i personally like dimpling. i'd like to see straight flutes vs spiral vs dimpling as far as accuracy is concerned
