So @ the LGS I'm @, we have a Bushmaster, fixed front sight, bayonet lug, and removable carry handle.  Standard forward assist, Brunton bump, and dust cover.

The DPMS has no sights, no bayonet lug, no forward assist, no Brunton bump, and no dust cover.  You can buy two for the price of the Bushmaster.  In fact, the DPMS is less than the price of either of the carbon framed rifles.  Even the .308" DPMS Gen 1 we have is a couple hundred bucks less than the .223" Bushmaster.

I think both of the DPMS rifles are pretty decent deals.  I sell them regularly.  I have no idea how to sell the Bushmaster.  Thoughts?

The Bushmaster will eat any ammo you feed it. Always reliable.






Thats my experience.

According my LGS because it's the weapon of choice for crazy mass shooting people... Seriously... They tried to tell me that BM's are hard to keep in-stock because everyone wants them due to the trunk snipers and the CT dude using them.





Personally I wouldn't buy a BM or a DPMS for that matter. My minimum bottom of the barrel go to brand has always been Smith and Wesson but I normally buy Colt's, Daniel Defense or Noveske's. That said any of them will eat up your ammo.





Buy one of those Colt OEM rifles for $750~850.00 and set it up the way you want it.

Both have been known to have tight chambers. DPMS Is known for sharp parts and corners being cut, canted fixed sights/ rails.

This is what I would guess also. My LGS doesn't carry either brand but, we get customers asking about them all the time. The lower priced models we carry are S&W, a few PSA's on occasion, and Armalite's. Other than that, our best sellers are DD, BCM, KAC, LMT, and Noveske's.

Nothing. Both are lower end rifles IME.

Not to take this thread off topic, but is your LGS an LMT dealer? Mine tried for the longest time, but LMT kept saying no. Apparently they're super picky about their dealers.

Exactly, both BM and DPMS are Freedom Group brands and are being consolidated to lower costs.

Personally, I wouldn't buy anything fro the Freedm Group if it can be avoided.

I live in MD and they wrote Bushmaster into their latest law, so it is a non-starter. DPMS is available. I like their Lo Pro slick side upper. I have used them on several builds.

Are AAC and Remington included in this? They both belong to Freedom Group.

Yes, I work at the Gun Gallery of JaX and we currently have 5.56 LM8 and LM8 MWS in stock. Cliff at Joint Force Enterprise is also local to us and I just sold a pretty cool looking LM8 MWS that was dipped in Black Multicam. Not sure if we have any uppers in stock but, we typically only stock the 10.5" upper cause we have a lot of customers that are into clones.

An incorrect Mk18?

So many better choices than Bushmaster or DPMS . The Colt 6920 that you can find at some Walmarts for $1000 is way better as far as quaility.

A Colt is worth two DPMS?  My S&W option (no dust cover) is another $150 over the DPMS.
