It's my new Bushamster Signature 16. What do you think.
Sweet, or just funny lookin'.
I put a cheap Tasco red dot on it. I hope to get an Aimpoint soon.
Haven't shot it yet.






By the way Kieslers has excellent customer service.

Here are the links in case webshots goes down.

Thats cool, what is the length of the barrel?
Link Posted: 1/11/2002 2:20:01 PM EDT
I like it. Did you buy it that way or add the floating tube?

OOps, I guess I got here after Webshots went down.

HG112, puhleese, tell us how it faired! :)

Way cool,
I wonder if the tube being close to flush with the barrel modifys the report (bang) in any way??
Link Posted: 1/16/2002 6:59:45 PM EDT
7IDL,
OK,
I am going to have to issue a Strong Buy on this one!

This gun is freakin' badass.
This is the best balanced rifle I have ever shot.
The red dot is perfectly suited to this rifle also. Although, I'm saving my pennies for an Aimpoint.

Buy one and shoot cans at 100yd.
It is quite possibly the most fun you will ever have.

I think it sounds about the same.

Nice lookin' shooter, hg112.
Check out this link and tell me if it reminds you of anything:

I'm considering the muzzle compensator they've got because I like the way it looks...

...notice the finished ones below the rifle.

You certainly went for one of the most unique "looks". Kewl.

Do ya think that kind would be good for my 1st AR?
Link Posted: 1/18/2002 7:03:25 AM EDT
Any issues with the barrel not having enough circulation?
Link Posted: 1/18/2002 7:24:25 AM EDT
Boomhaur,
I think it would do just fine as your first AR.
I'm a big bushmaster fan because of their crome-lined barrels. The Signature 16 uses the same barrel as the shorty 16, which is also a great rifle. The float tube provides greater accuracy. The rest is cosmetic.

FNC80,
I rapid fired 30 rounds. It seemed to heat up less than a standard handguard 16", of course it was cold that day.
In my informal test the full float tube seemed to remain cooler than a regular handguarded rifle, I could be wrong.

How Heavy is it?

A little heavier than a standard 16" HBAR. It's not really noticeable.
Link Posted: 1/18/2002 12:48:30 PM EDT
How many pounds do you think? 7,8? in that range?

I think a 16" HBAR weighs about 7.6, so I would say about 8lb.

Well Thats not bad. How much is the upper?
