    Just got a brand new, factory assembled XM15 Bushmaster. Accurate, but has the disconcerting habit of firing two round bursts! Might be great for Afghanastan, but my range frowns on such things. Certainly got my attention. Going back to Maine as soon as the shipping label arrives.

    Anybody else had that trouble? Single stage trigger and less than 100 rounds. Various ammo and several different magazines.

    Brand new huh? sounds like the disconnector isn't catching or is barely catching and the force of the bolt closing is letting the hammer go. You could always replace that for under ten bucks if you wanted to fix it yourself. But if you ordered it new...I'd send it back ASAP! No matter what you say the BATF will not be nice about it. Good Luck!

    It's back, Bushmaster was very helpful, and it's no longer a Class III firearm!
