I've owned 2 Bushies and I just haven't been pleased with accuracy. One was a 20" the other a 16". I fed every ammo from 55gr FMJ to 69gr BTHP and just didn't get the groups dialed in like I can with my other AR's of different brands!

I do *NOT* have experience with Stag. I've not heard anything negative about them. They made the first S&W MP15's until S&@W tooled up to make their own.

Unless you have access to a great discount from either, I'd personally recommend the S&W MP15's for a similar price range gun. I know that doesn't answer your question, but just throwing it out there.

To answer your question...go STAG, just my experience with Bushie not great. Maybe they make a great gun, but my two have me shy away from them, likely for some time.

Best of luck!

I've had both and I think the Stag wins. Uses F-Marked FSB (required for flattop uppers), and fit/finish is better. I've hady two bushys, and the dry-film lube on the upper wasn't nearly as nice as the Stag. Stag cust service is second to none as well as their warranty. Just my opinion/experience with both.

Thanks to the Youtube Hitler video, Bushmaster is also known as "Shrubmaster" or "The gun company that sounds like it should be selling Rhododendrens" thanks the ACR debacle at the SHOT show. They doubled the expected price and gave it a non-chromelined bbl in 1-9 twist pissing off half of Arfcom. Very hillarious... See the Magpul industry forum.

Haha, I was wondering when that ACR stuff would come bite a XXX vs. Bushmaster type forum in the ass.

Berating Bushmaster AR-15 weapons for the production of the ACR is like berating Colt for the production of it's "Colt 2000".

I don;t know as much about Stag.... I've never owned one, but they seem to be OK. I had a Bushie that the chamber was out of spec on. I'd probably get the Stag.

stag uses a milspec diameter buffer tube, which puts them ahead in my book. that said, CMT, is a MAJOR supplier of parts to several AR manufacturers. bear that in mind.

I own both, and like both equally as well. I like Stag's logo better though, so I'll say Stag I guess.

I also own both.

I would prefer a Stag with the BushMaster barrel.

WTF? Who's crying? I have no dog in the fight since I don't own either. Just trying to inject a little humor. I will agree that it was a thread hijack and for that I am eternally sorry....

With the prices what they are these days, I would kick out a few extra $$ and get a S&W or a Colt.

I've have two Bushmasters and have had no trouble with them at all. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another if the configuration was what I wanted and the price was right.

Having owned both, I would buy the Stag for certain. The Stag has a Mil-Spec receiver extension, "F" marked front sight base and IMO a much better chance of having a properly indexed barrel.

I have one of each. The Stag has a much nicer fit and finish (if thats important to you). My Bushy is a work horse and eats whatever I feed it. The Bushy is also a little more accurate (it may just like the ammo I use better). I like the roll mark on the Bushy better but that is kinda trivial. I honestly dont think you can wrong with either.
