Thought I'd say Hi and let ya'll know I ordered my first AR pistol this morning. Modern handguns (.357-.44 mags) occupy a great deal of my firearms interest but AK's, AR's SKS's are also among my favoites.
After doing a bit of searching, around the web, I decided on the Bushmaster 97S. I own a couple Bushmasters now with the M4gery being my favorite.
The 97S will be in tomorrow but unable to pick up until Wednesday. Range (out back) report to follow.
Sorry about the late reply but a bug from hell has it's teeth firmly imbedded in my...!
Brought the Bushy home late last week and after a good clean and lube job I headed out back with high hopes and two thirty round mags loaded with Wolf 55gr JHP (It's what I use in my M4gery). The way I was feeling I thought if I could get thru fifty six rounds (twenty eight rounds per mag) I'd be doing good.
The set up was standing, off hand with paper plates at 25yds. I was really just testing the funtionality rather than accuracy of the new pistol.
The pistol took to the Wolf ammo like a baby to candy. Zero malfunctions. Out of the box the pistol shot center, low (about 3"). First half of the mags were aimed slow fire. Second half was rapid fire (fast as I could pull the trigger) from the hip.
To sum up, it ran great and was even more fun that I thought it would be. Yeah, I'm hooked and hooked good on AR-15 pistols now.
PS. Today I'm ordering an AimSHOT LS8200 Green Laser for those from the hip shots.
Thanks for reading.
