    Ok, I've searched the carbine forum but didn't see where anyone has actually installed one of Bushman's charging handles upgrades. So has anyone installed it on a 4095?

    *Calling all 4095 owners*
    Anyone who has installed Bushman's upgrades(Charging handle or trigger) please post up!
     
  2. Bushman said he thought someone had done it but he couldn't remember who it was.
    If it was installed it must have worked or he would have heard of it not working.

    Sorry, I will keep mine 100% stock
     
  5. My holdopen has issues.Needs to be enlarged.I found how to lighten the trigger pull and I thought a better trigger might make it even better
     
  6. Well guys, since no one came forward and said yay or nay then we can only assume that it has not been done. What we need now is a guinea pig. So I offer you this, buy one, try it out, if it doesn't work just send it back and a full refund will be issued. If it does work, post a nice review for all to read.

    I would like someone with some mechanical inclination to be the first... in case minor alterations are needed.

    So, what say you.
     
  7. I say I would be glad to if I had money right now :(
     
  8. Well lbreevesii, were you planning on buying a set eventually? Your a longstanding member, I would be willing to send you the set and expect payment later if you decide to keep them.

    Let the R&D begin!!!!

    If I had a 4095 I would jump on that band wagon...but I already have it on my 995 and love it!

    Note: I cleared the following with Oneofsix.

    I received two charging handles from Bushman98 today. I installed one on my 4095 and it works perfectly. Because of its larger size, I prefer it to the stock charging handle.

    Thank you Bushman!
     
  13. Ok, looks like at least one guy used a charging handle for a 4095. He said it fit, but I wrote him back to confirm that it also locked back.

    Oneofsix will get his soon..... for the second opinion.

    Bushman trigger update-
    I had to do some fitting to the trigger, looking closely above the trigger was hitting the guard and preventing firing and reset.
    Currently, the reworked trigger is on its way back to Bushman so it can be replicated.
    Soon as I get it back it's going in!
    Get ready 4095 owners that want a Bushman trigger...

    I have the improved handle on my 4095 and it works great.
    I tried the trigger but it is slightly different on the 995, so I had some issues on my .40. It sure looked good though...
    Bushman is supposed to send another trigger as soon as he gets it worked out for me to try.
    But yes, the op handle has no issues.
     
  17. UPDATE:

    Oneofsix sent me his trigger. I'm seding his back and a "reversed engineered" version that I made.

    I've also sent another one to another member and hopefully he will post his comments. If it fits and functions, they will be sold at my webstore.

    Oneofsix, thanks for all the help and hope to hear from you soon.

    **UPDATE**

    Range report on the Bushman trigger-worked just fine at the range today. Made a quick trip just to test it as I want to get the original Bman trigger I worked on back in the gun.
    I did no work on this one, just installed it. Only one time did I experience any trouble, had one time it stuck in the rearward position, but Bushman and I had already spoke about this and the production models shouldn't stick at all as the problem area should be fixed.
    Like I said, a quick trip to the range, only 50 rounds as I had a shortage of time. Before anyone picks up on it, the targets below only show 42-43 holes, thats because the first 7-8 went downrange using only the red dot laser and I didn't hit squat. At 10 yds I'm not even sure I hit the target holder. Oh well, off it comes and maybe a Bushman flash hider will take it's place.
    25 yds

    all in all, good day at the range, short tho it was :D :D
