Does anyone know the history of the company?

I am watching a film on UNCTV, called "Valentia: Mexican-Americans In World War II." (Linky)
The Vets stated that they were called the "Bushmasters". The Company Symbol they used looked EXACTLY like the bushmaster snake on BM's lowers.

Does anyone know anything on this?


BTW: Google turned up this

from this website www.angelfire.com/md2/patches/infantry.html


ETA they were the 158th Infantry Regiment

I have never seen any kind of history on the firearm comapny.
And yes the Snake is a bushmaster.

*Maybe* the company was founded by Vets, who were Mexican?

Now I am just really curious if and what kind of connection there is.

Bushmaster logo since at least 1981:


Bushmaster was known as "Quality Parts Inc" for the longest time, and AFAIK, has never been affiliated with Sendra.

I'd be very interested in which 50 countries use BM for their military.

I remember in the late 70s being told that the "woods fuzz" (game wardens) were being issued "Bushmasters in .223 Remington." At the time, I had no idea what that meant,
