What's the general consensus on Bushmaster's fluting? Pro's & Con's?
It would be on either a 14.5 or 16 inch A3.
Thanks in advance...

I've got a BM Dissipator with a fluted heavy barrel. Excellent work. I could, would, and do reccomend it all day long. It also makes the barrel more rigid and increase surface area to aid in cooling.

FWIW, fluting looks really cool and reduces weight.

I have a 16" bushmaster fluted barrel and love it. I think it's the best compromise between a rigid barrel for accuracy and weight.

Ditto on looks cool too.

Definitely worth it.

No negitives?
I agree it looks sweet. For 50 bucks, that's a deal when it comes to AR's!
I'm guessing they do it to the heavy barrel model right?
Is Bushmasters process top notch?
