Converted a 10 the day I got them, set out the 20 and the 30 to play with the next day and have been laid up with torn discs since so I haven't gotten back to them yet.

I had planned on having them done and to have dropped a few hogs by now.

But a clown with no insurance who rear ended me at a stop light while doing 50 had other plans for my immediate future ...... :evil:

On a side note I found that State troopers will relieve you of your carry piece and skinning knife while you are being strapped to a back board slicker than any pick pocket could.

No one has ever successfully touched either and got away with it, let alone remove them from my control. I had a very nice chat with him at the hospital about the potential perils of doing that unannounced.

He was kind enough though to go back and place both exactly where I told him I would expect to find them in my (now) totaled Jeep and to lock it up.

So .... all I have been doing lately is laying around and occasionally surfing and reading new posts.

Awe man.... Sorry to hear that! Be sure to ask for a TENZ unit from your doc. I've got one for my back and it's a wonderful tool. I've had a bit of bad luck over here myself. Went to my doc for a physical last week and when the bloodwork came back, my doc called and said my PSA is a bit out of whack so I'm staring down the barrel of some potentially scary times in the future. More tests next week to find out if it's serious. Hang in there.

They gave me a RX for a tenz unit and I have been using it, and a RX for morphine which I am not using.

It sux because I can't lay flat, and I can't sit up straight in a chair, I'm stuck in a recliner 99% of the day at a 45

Still trying to figure out how to load while laying at a 45 .... :mrgreen:

I had similar blood test results a few years back, turns out there are several things that can cause the higher results, beside the fact that the test can be very inaccurate to begin with. Mine ended up not being a problem at all. I hope you have the same good results.

The one strange thing I found out about during my brief scare was something they should inform everyone about before taking that blood test. If you fool around with the wife / girlfriend for the 2 days prior to the blood test you will get more accurate results.

They tell you when your not supposed to eat for 12 to 24 hours on other blood tests, so why the heck wouldn't they tell a guy that ?

On second thought it's probably because a wife wouldn't believe it.

I didn't read all 9 pages, so forgive me if it's already been said - I have found great success with the SIG polymer mags. Others have claimed you need no mods, but I did dremel a "half moon" in the front as a precaution. This was due partly to the "eyeball test" and more importantly hand cycling in which I found the occasional round was hanging up on the front of the mag prior to the half moon mod. Other than that, I did not change anything, including leaving the stock 5.56 follower in place and to date have had close to 100 rounds through each of 2 mags without a hiccup. The feed lips seem to be the ideal spacing for the .450 BM round, at least as compared to the dinking around I've done with opening or tightening other SS and aluminum mags. Your mileage may vary, of course...

No changes needed. Leave your lower receiver alone. As long as you're getting a factory Bushmaster brand 450 Bushmaster upper, (16" or 20"), you'll be fine.

I agree with the Dawg! You should be fine with no changes required to your lower receiver. If for some reason you run into any issues post a new thread and describe the symptoms and I am sure someone on here can help diagnose the problem. The odds are that it will function flawlessly as it is now.
