I've got a colt lower that I need to finish.. I was planning on getting the colt upper and found the Knights freefloat upper. All in all probably looking at around probably 1300ish. Or I could get the Bushmaster set up exactly like the one on their law enforcment page for under 9 seen here. http://www.bushmaster.com/le/

It's goign to end up with an ACOG ontop of it here eventually. And I'm thinking I'd prefer teh 1-9 just from what I was reading in reloading manuels and ammo oracle.

So whaddaya think?

896.90 actually for the bushmaster. I just found the piece of paper I wrote my price quote down on.

Buy the Colt. Almost all the mil-spec advantages over the Bushmaster are in the upper anyway. Its only a little bit more, but its a far superior piece of machinery.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 5:50:47 PM EST
I am leaning that way just to keep it all colt.. I guess i can learn to do a freefloat setup

When colt uppers drop in price to normal then Ill buy one but 900 to a thousand for one is highway robbery just to have M4 feed ramps and the now higher but spec carry handle and FSB.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 6:48:22 PM EST
I don't see the colts dropping anytime here in teh future (near or far off) so I figure get 'em while you can.

damn.. I just looked at the BM site on their standard M4 upper.. It's only 535 where as the colt is damned near 1K.

Just pointing that out... I'm not too overly concerned about pricetags.. If I planned on staying cheap I'd have gotten an SKS or something.

I'm still not too sure though.. Damned brain trying to think instead of just spending $$$

LMT would be my second choice.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 6:52:34 PM EST
More money dosent mean better,like jack said LMT is way less but with the M4 features as even if you get a real colt M4 barrel with the extension that has ramps you will need a proper upper for the barrel to index right or just get the whole thing from LMT and forget about it.

I've seen enough bad stuff about LMT just here alone to make me nervous about the brand.

I'll most likely go Colt of Bushmaster..

what do to the LMTs run anyway? I had figured they'd be right up there with colt since I heard someplace they were a Govt. Contractor now.

Also I've read some bad things about LMT here while I was checking around.. I'll have to check what kind of offers the dealers like MSTN have for them if they're bad quality or just refuse to work right.

I'm sure as far as the finish the dealers would check that type of thing first.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 6:58:05 PM EST
They are $485 without b/bc/ch and mine is reliable.

damn. that's a whole lot less than i expected. Wow.....


I don't see really what can be really wrong with an upper but i'll have to do a little more reading I guess..

Thanks for the info

Colt sux. Buy Bushmaster.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 7:00:45 PM EST
LMT is good stuff, I dont have my upper here right now to check, but I think it has the M4 feed ramps.
Link Posted: 10/5/2004 7:04:38 PM EST
From what I've read before all the LMTs have the feedramps cut.

What's killing me is that I know I could get another brand done the way I want it for less than I could pay for the Colt then have work to do on it...
Cheaper and be setup the way I want it from teh go... Oh decisions decisions..



And I just realized the site I'm on so before anybody says it I'm not buying both or all three


So is there anymajor differences between LMT and say Bushmaster besides feedramp cuts?

Hit me today that this whole thread doesn't make sense.. I bought the Colt lower before the AWB ended because I wanted a colt with all the evil features..

I still want a colt so I can't see a reason to mix & match it..

I gotta go check on that tomorrow when i get home. I need the M4 chrome lined and feedramps in the flat top upper.

thanks, I (for some reason that's beyond me) never thought to look for uppers alone on gunbroker or gunsamerica.

thanks.
