Which makes the better product??? I want an M4, preban with collapsable stock, and have noticed that Bushmaster is almost the same price as the Colt that I would like. Which company do you guys prefer, and why??? I was issued Colt m-16a2 in the Corps, but is the Bushmaster up there qualitywise??? Thanks a ton guys...

Bushmaster is a very good gun and should be less $$

Jesus guys...thanks for opening my damn eyes. The colt I was interested in is PREBAN, for$3000.00. Just looked at Bushys website and found the nice M4 variant they produce...that will do nicely, thank you!!! Searched a few gun web sites and found them NIB for $750-$850. Hell yeah...didn't know that they were that damn nice...you're correct, WAY nicer than Colt's.....Thanks guys!

Just Becuase the Miltary uses them does not mean they are better, They were just sold cheaper. Bushmaster is the best. Six

Where in the world did you find a Pre-ban Bushmaster for 750-800?????? I have been looking for just a pre-ban lower for months and the prices on them are that high! Thanks

No kidding! As far as I have seen, $1200.00 would be a good price for a complete pre-ban B.M.

I have a pre-ban Colt 6600 and a 6520 and Bushmaster AR-Shorty and think of them as mechanicaly equals, but there are a lot of newbee's who have heard of the Colt etc so there may be something there in resale. I don't care much about the pin size etc or parts exchange issues on the new Colts. I did see a Bushy M4 with the phoney tele-stock and it was not up to par, the mags were so tight you almost had to force them in and out, the finish of the upper looked like dices of dirt got into the forging leaving pretty big visual imperfections glaring at you. The Colt sitting right next to it was a much better rifle, I'd make the decision on the two rifles in my hand. A good one of each is a good rifle. Bill Happiness is a warm gun... Bang bang, shoot shoot...

Colt makes a fine rifle. Having said that, I went with Bushmaster for the following reasons. 1. Closer to mil-spec 2. Cheapest of the big three 3. Quality is as good or better than any other rifle Mil-spec was important to me because it provides for durability (chrome barrel and chamber), reliability (chrome chamber), and maintainability (standard parts).

I think I screwed up my wording...I WANTED a preban COLT M4($3000), but I found postban Bushmaster m4 "almost as goods" for $700-800...not a pre ban. I'd sell my balls for that!!!!!!!!!!
