I dont think the serial number thingy on the BFI website is working correctly. It doesn't show any numbers need to be recalled when entered. Propably a glich.Thanks, I called Bushmaster today. The lady told me the firing pin and spring are to be repalced as you said. I gave them my serial number and they are mailing me a box and RMA etc. to repair my rifle. I found out from the lady that there is a serial number link on the BM website. I checked my serial number on the site and found that my rifle is NOT included in the recall. YES this makes no sense, but then neither does va recall on a 2000 dollar rifle. The conversation I had with BM is actually more upsetting then the recall itself....................
I was using American Eagle Tactical XM193 5.56 rounds. The malfunction I had was identical to youtube user Jdluisa. Looks like I may need a new regulator.ACRguy556...tell us what you were shooting..1 malfunction in 20 rounds is concerning...also I take it you were BM 10 round mags? Were you getting these types of problems before?
Yeah it really sucks. I was hoping to see a new regulator when I got the ACR back. Anyway, I am going to try and shoot it Wednesday morning. I have 200 rounds of 5.56 and going to see what happens.ACRguy556.....that's why I asked I didn't want to suggest a solution without knowing what ammo you were using. I have previously mentioned my conversation with the product mgr at BM regarding the ACR. According to him they are still looking into this problem and they are still not admitting that there is a problem openly or officially. So, it depends who you end up talking to that day.
I had a difficult conversation with them because, if in fact the ACR is marketed to fire 5.56 then BM should not be talking about offering this new gas regulator as an option as previously suggested. I'll be really pissed if I have to pay extra to shoot 5.5.6 through a rifle that is marketed to fire 5.56.
I'm keeping an open mind about all this for now...that's until it starts happening to me.
Time will tell what BM officially comes out an says... but there are too many instances occurring where they are going have to release some kind of statement... and soon
I will be taking my new ACR out to the range this Friday to break it in and then I'll start working on feeding it American Eagle 5.56 as well.
