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!

^^^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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

If it was then you had a "real" Bushmaster.

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