I know nothing about them. Saw pics of it online and saw that most parts appeared to be SA.

I take it I didn't take a bath on this one?

I can't believe you found a sucker who wanted a bushmaster that bad but good on you for doing it.

Not at all. Enjoy it.

That is a sweet looking rifle.
Link Posted: 9/15/2013 10:51:07 AM EDT
Nice looking rifle. If you have regrets, I'm sure I can dig up a Bushmaster to trade you!!

Nice rifle, not a collector piece, but worth more than what you traded. You did good!


Go shoot it!!

^^^This.
Earlier pre 08 Bushys were great rifles. Since then, meh. I have seen more BS issues with late model Bushys.
If it was a late model rifle you did great, if an earlier rifle you did well
Garands are always a good score though.

Bushmaster orc. Traded it exactly like that

It was a newer one 2011 ish

Can't disagree: They're still making Bushies but not Garands.
Link Posted: 9/15/2013 11:07:56 AM EDT
You can get AR15s all day long.

M1s on the other hand, are a dieing breed. Hell yeah it was a good trade.

And Bushmaster is.... meh.

My experience as well. My 90s era Bushmasters have been fine.
Link Posted: 9/15/2013 11:11:19 AM EDT
You did OK value-wise but I would have done it only to leverage my way into something I could flip for a little more than the Bushy. As far as owning either rifle for a shooter/HD weapon; the Bushy would have been a keeper. Sorry, no love for Garands. They're interesting antiques but that's it in my opinion.

Firing the M1 Garand simultaneously gives you a 5 O'clock shadow, and lowers your voice 2 octaves. Women swoon over the size and amount of your wood. Lesser men fear your ping.
Link Posted: 9/15/2013 11:20:29 AM EDT
I think you did good, and I think you came out better than the other guy did.
Link Posted: 9/15/2013 11:20:57 AM EDT
There was a really nice poem about the M1 that was written. For the life of me, I cannot find it.

But it talks about the M1 being used to stop oppression, while the AK has been using for bank heists and mass executions of civilians, ect ect.

Someone know what I am talking about?

I can agree with most of what you are saying.

Maybe he had a shit load of Garands and needed an AR.

Nice Garand, though.

Now replace that AR.
Link Posted: 9/15/2013 11:53:15 AM EDT
Good. Now buy a colt to replace the bushmaster.
Link Posted: 9/15/2013 3:27:45 PM EDT
Way ahead of that. Already have one ;)



But two is one, and one is none
Link Posted: 9/15/2013 3:36:18 PM EDT
Definitely an upgrade.


------------------------------------------------
Link Posted: 9/15/2013 3:38:18 PM EDT
I would have done that if I had more than one AR to trade.

I only have one AR though so no, even though I would probably second guess myself about it later.

I don't get the Garand obsession. If it can't hold 1MOA, it belongs in the trashcan along with the ak junk.
Link Posted: 9/15/2013 3:51:41 PM EDT
What AR are you going to buy once you sell the Garand?

Seriously, have you even picked one up. The greatest battle rifle ever invented and it is sacrilegious to mention it in the same phrase with an AK for comparison purposes.

No way I'd trade a milsurp relic for a functioning, modern weapon. Sorry, my brother...but you fail.

Hahaha.

I've been through over 300 rounds in my M1 without a single malfunction and it was shooting groups almost indistinguishable from my AR's shot groups.

13-ers - Not that I'm much better.

No plans to sell this. Ever. I fell in love with it the moment I saw the ad and knew as soon as I saw it I absolutely had to have it

I don't have ANYTHING in .30 cal - I'm really excited to shoot it for the first time.

I have several that will do that and they are not tricked out target guns. In my hands, an average garand shoots a 30% smaller group than an average AR on the same day, both with milspec ammo.

Plus, I don't have to shoot shit 2 or 3 times with a Garand to fuck something up like I do with an AR.

Garands are a functioning, (relatively) modern weapon. Values on Garands will only go up. I doubt that will happen with the Bushy.

That was a damn good trade.

So you don't get people owning WWII era jeeps, tanks and aircraft?


Link Posted: 9/15/2013 4:14:39 PM EDT
Was the Bushmaster purple?
Was the front site canted off-center?
If it was then you had a "real" Bushmaster.

Hopefully you don't have a "new" Springfield Armory Garand.

every American gun owner NEEDS a Garand, you did good


now, if you no longer have an AR, you do need to rectify that as well
