Gentlemen,

A quick not of introduction: I am a retired Marine, live in Idaho (about 35 miles from Ross Schuler) recently purchased a 450B and I am in the process of purchasing and installing a Ross Brake. The info in this foum has been a great help. From crush washers, blackening the brake, threads size, blue followers, Ultimate Slam scopes to hydraulic buffers.....I have got it all coming and showing up this week. I will blacken the brake and install it, mount a P.E.P.R. mount with the Ultimate Slam 2x7 scope and head out to sight it in.

I plan to use it as a cow elk and wolf gun (and any foolish black bear I may find).

Thanks for the info. Very helpful.

I just blew two of these to smithereens. I don't know yet, if maybe they were from a batch that got away from Smith Enterprises, but the heat treat doesn't seem just right.

In the World of Production, things happen. I really like what this Flash Hider does for my application and I've turned them in for replacement. I like them so much, I'm figuring, this mishap, was just a fluke..

Hey Guys!! Im new to this site. Just want to put my two cents worth in. I will tell you all, its hard to find anything for the 450 Bushmaster, it has not caught on enough yet for everyone to start making items for it. I built mine using a new Stag Arms lower, they are the finest you can buy for the price, nice trigger, and the upper was the carbine length 450. I added on all the extras. it all came out for a decent price. I did find a bargain if any one is interested. I found a HK style muzzle brake that works coupled with the Enidine buffer piston really softens and holds the rifle in place when shooting. I found a local guy who carries UTG Pro 3/4 quad rail fore ends, they habe the extention tab that meets up with the flat top and man what a nice touch to that carbine! looks more like my 5.56 now. You'll have to tolerate some nasty people when you call Bushmaster for parts, as they are nothing like they were when they were a stand alone company, everyone acts like your bothering them when you call for tech advice or parts. Crush washers are only avaiable from them, I looked everywhere! So, I got the thread on muzzle brake and then it tightens down with four screws. Great unit. I found the guy on ebay, he does a copy of the Grizzly. good luck all,
