    I have a bushmaster, and love it. I would stay away from the carbon one, unless you are dead set on it. I have had no problems with mine, I shoot cheap (wolf) ammo and its super accurate. It easily shoots under moa at 100yds. Get a bushmaster, you wont regret it.

    Great gun. That's actually what I was expecting for xmas, but my gun dealer left a message for the wife and blew her surprise to me. Looks like a 12 ga. persuader and a .357 tracker under my tree.:laugh:

    I'd rather have forged aluminum. 0.75 pounds of weight savings isnt really worth it on an AR15-style weapon... the thing is light as hell already. Any lighter and you might actually be able to feel the recoil when you pull the trigger. lol!

    Just to give you something to relate it to.

    I bought a like new Armalite M15A4 for $800. Full stock, 16" bull barrel, green furniture and a Bushnell holographic sight. It is the flattop. $100 extra and I had the Armalite handle and front sight. Put the holo on the AMD 65 with the folding stock.

    If you like the Bushmaster (and I do), You can get a std config with the 4 position stock for a good bit less than the one you are looking at and have money left for accessories.

    The other option is to build one - www.ar15.com

    I have a few Mini-14's but have considered picking up a Bushmaster as well. I also love that cheap Wolf ammo for the desert. I keep the good stuff for the big one, but for having fun you can't beat that Wolf stuff by the thousand at the gun shows.

    If you want one without papers, you certainly can't talk about it here at CK5.

    stay away from the carbon upper, my buddy has one and its getting worn out after only maybe 3k rounds, charging handle has cracked the outside and inside is worn from the bolt assembly

    not a bushmaster tho, maybe those are better:confused:
