It is a "base" model bushwacker. It is no better (and maybe worse) that a kit put together for the same price with an upgraded trigger set up. My bull barreled set up with drop in trigger cost me the same. It takes all of 15-30 min to put a lower together, and any decent kit comes with the upper already assembled. I believe anyone that wants to own an AR should have to build it... if you don't know how it works, then you can't take care of it properly. There are too many people buying these (and ak variants) that just don't have an idea how they work. (see my OT below)Wow no one is listening to me.
There is a place that sells Bushmaster AR's for 700 NIB. It's called Hoplite Inc. 502-955-5014 8am-5pm EST. It has a collapsible stock, 16" heavy barrel, 30 rd mag, it's an A2 style carbine.
Their ad is in Shotgun News all the time.
There is no doubt that an AR is not an AR. I have (had... got rid of it) one example of a horrible lower. Everything was over sized, and you would think the mill had been run buy a drunk russian. lolI know how one works, in Basic I had to take it apart and put it back together in like 2 minutes, so I don't want to put one together when I get it. I don't want a kit as they tend not to be as good of quality as the one I have ( Colt Gov't, Law Enforcement Use Only model) or the ones I dream of having like a Noveske http://www.noveskerifleworks.com/
You will not find a better built AR. For example they use machine gun grade barrels, and yes there is a difference between them an assault rifle barrels, simply stronger materials are used. The quality is off the charts. For people with the "An AR is an AR" mindset I feel bad for them as they have no clue.
Should club the salesman too :devilsidesmile:
