No such thing as a preban anymore unless you live in a state that has their own ban.

Hope you didn't get that 'preban' recently and pay $1600 for it.

was 800 too much. The gun is like nib. 11.5 barrel with 5.5 supressor. 2 pos stock. This gun is like new. You have to look carful at the bolt to know its been fired. There are no new bushy being produced like this today that Ive seen. and btw. preban is still just that and will command a premium in regulated states. Common post bans will not. Note- I am not stating facts as they arent apparent yet, just what Ive understood and by the way-I have had an offer for 300 more than I payed, anyone else getting these offers on Olympic or even RRA? Sorry guys dont mean to sound like ive written, just that Ive had only very positive reactions to my investment

LOL

Browse around this site a little, you may find that members here are trading their "prebans" to regulated states for new receivers. You could easily build a Bushy with 11.5 barrel and 5.5 FS (but why would you want to).

Ok I can admit I may have found a better deal. But thats just it-i found plenty better deals but no rifle I liked. This gun is shorter than my arm. Its borderline LEO. Believe me I AM a serious shopper. For the quality i got I dont see myself as having lost worse than a 9% tops and I go by the numbers. Why then have I already had several offers all of which are above 10% of my cost-on a USED gun.

It's no shorted than a 14.5" barreled AR with permanently affixed FS. You lose an incredibly amount of ballistic performance for that 11.5" commando look.
Link Posted: 9/28/2004 10:17:16 PM EST
I understand. Why then was the commando look made? Of course you are very right regarding ballistics but then what is my job? Sorry, not trying to be facesous. Comfort of performance is always an issue. I can also very honestly say that I have proven to the disbelief of others just what the average gun can do with the right karma. Im sure one understands the second intuitive sense that comes from bonding to ANY particular weapon. Understandable not a norm but all the same a fact for many. Preban, postban yada yada agreed but there still are some issued firearms with very attractive qualities. Sales is my life. To understand it is to be involved

Bonding?...are you high?

Link Posted: 9/28/2004 10:31:41 PM EST
Ok I feel the need to qualify my statements. NOT. Im just a more profound reflector than your average, but I function great and with lots of fun and no I AM NOT HIGH-thats an unnecessity if you do it right

So where can I get some of this karma that extends the effective fragmentation range of a 5.56 NATO round fired from an 11.5" barrel?

they are old. where i live it's just another lower, nothing special. right now they're still worth something to people in AWB states though. i'm estimating that a lot of the former 'preban' stuff will soon flood to these states as that is the only place where they still have value beyond a normal unban lower.

Thats exactly right. I believe in investing only in something with a marginal profitable resale value in catagories such as this. If I place a preban side to side with anyone elses post issue in NEW YORK(home to 16,000,000+ during the day). What are the opptions. Again just being matter of fact and I intend no arguement. BTW i was raised in the east coast;)

Claiming that a "pre-ban" receiver is old and nothing special while in the same statement claiming that you traded one old, nothing special, "pre-ban" receiver for two new receivers defies logic.

The fact that you can trade one for two demonstrates that "pre-ban" receivers may be old but they are in fact still special, to someone.

this man is simply relating fact I dont disagree that stabilization will occur, and probably rapidly, but how can anyone argue that there is some relative higher value for whatever time it allows.

And on fragmentation-very significant, but not essential for a kill. I make no great disclaimores
just experience and relationships.

If you're unwilling to sell it, then it's not a wise investment. The same arguement is used to discourage purchasing of NFA for "investment purposes".

Thats neither a CAR nor Carbine. The look and feel I want is shorty XM which I got. NONE of the newer issues by Bushmaster met my protocol.

Aside-why are so many asking me about mine when there are all these newer models available
Also shes HBAR 1/9 Again i dont mean to create any hostility. Do better get better, well in my pic a 66 convert mustang is not a 67 fastback. Yeah they both burn regular, and certainly a newer Mach 1 isnt in my list of preferences. My point simply beng that anything with some relative uniqueness is in my book desireable. I couldnt apply this comment to all weapons. Thats all Im saying. Again feedback on the issue has been positive. Of course not everyone wil have the same value ethics, but whats not made anymore...
