Is the RR the same as the BM?
I find it strange that one company would introduce a product, remove it from the market and then have a second company re-introduce it?
What was wrong with the first run? If there were a problem, why was it not corrected? The BM product was very short lived, to say the least? Sounds like a lot of liabilty problems/concerns or worse?
By the way, I think both BM and RR make good 223 products.
Any further thoughts? What is what and why?
Thanks

The BM in 308 lower was in Carbon Fiber?
I missed that one. Thank you.

No, I think he means that BM started selling carbon-15 rifles and started 9mm carbon rifles and chose to stop the 308 and bullpup rifles in favor of concentrating on the carbon-15 and 9mm rifles.

I'd also like another answer; How does RRA afford to sell the (BM) .308 rifle for a couple hundred dollars less than BM did? After all, it is basically the same rifle, right?

From what I have read here on this forum, BM produced their 308 under license from RRA. Licensing fees, a couple hundred bucks...

Now I recall reading BM announcement regarding the withdrawl of the BM 308.
It didn't make much sense to me, why introduce a product to withdraw it months later. Products and capacity are know well in advance. It may be a commercial downfall with RR?
I can now speculate that RR made the lowers for BM. This would explain also why RR can sell the rifles for less?

easy enough to tell them apart. bushmaster is the one that breaks when you shoot it.
