DPMS, same thing...in fact we use full auto DPMS at work and those have countless amounts of rounds through them and they still work fine...so again, where does this rep come from?
I have had 3 bushys and never had an issue also, but I have read that some of the bushys are not made to the same standard as others are. There is a video on youtube that explains the quality of the bolt carriers of the different brands and you can see that the bushy carrier that they have on this video is not of the quality of the other guns.
