$1075.00 is pretty steep for my broke arse.
ehh im just doing some preliminary research cause i plan on purchasing one in the future..and i guess i put alot of thought into my gun buys
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.
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.
Some guys live right. ****, I'll bet she even cooks too.
great gun, my friend has a BM shorty, i love how it fires, except for the occasional jam, other than that its a blast, and loud as hell
Yea .223 and 7.62x39 all have that snap/bark, not at all like .30.

does that mean the only way for one is to build it?
If you want one without papers, you certainly can't talk about it here at CK5.
do you have to be 21 to get the papers? how do you go about getting the papers?
Just buy one off gunbroker or ak-47 man
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
