Besides the free-float handguard what are the differences between a V Match Bushmaster and an A3 National Match Bushmaster? Does the V Match use a different barrel? Different trigger? Thanks.

Vmatch is a standard rifle (also available in carbine) with a free floated aluminum handguard and a shaved front sight. Barrel and trigger will be the same as on any other standard rifle.

I was looking on the Bushmasdter web site for an A3 national match and didnt see one. Do you have a link?

This rifle is referred to as the National Match Target model in the printed catalog from Bushmaster:

OK, I reffered to my printed catalog as well. You're right, it is reffered to as a national match rifle there. Well, unless mistaken, that "national match" gun in the catalog is a standard flat top rifle. It too will have a standard trigger and barrel.

Both rifles will have the same 20" Chrome lined HBAR with the milspec 5.56 chamber (not a tight match chamber). They will both have standard milspec triggers which are somewhat heavy. The only real difference in the v-match and that gun is the Vmatches free floating handguard (which will improvew accuracy) and the shaved front sight.

What purpose would you like this rifle to fill?

If you are looking for more of a match gun, maybe look into their DCM model. This model will come with a free floating handguard, match sights, match trigger, match grade barrel and chamber, etc, etc.
