I got may FAB10 lower Friday and my brother brought me my Bushmaster predator upper today so I got busy and put my rig together: The fab10 Lower is waaaaaay tight with both my Bushy uppers and requires a screw driver to pound out the pin to release it. I will test fire it next weekend and sight it in. Posted Image

Looks very cool. Are you using a bullet button? I was contemplating on making one of those. How much does it weight?

The Fab 10 is the .223 AR that the mag well is solid across the bottom making impossible to remove the mag.

Correct. Upper load only. I have reg AW Bushy's but I want one I can use to shoot/hunt with without the possiblities of hassles. It is a .223/5.56. The upper is all Bushmaster and the lower is a FAB10.

If you are into tactical tupperware, the Carbon 15 has a neat little cut out line on the bottom of the mag well. All you have to do is cut out on the line and you have full detachable capability. I believe the mag release is already on the rifle too.

Yes the mag release is there and I have noticed the line. It's best to leave it be here in this state.

Bushmaster doesn't sell the carbon 15 lowers only otherwise I'd have bought it. I like the AR platform and love shooting my dissipator but I don't want to deal with LAW man when I hunt.
