Anyone have / shot a bushmaster 25th anniversary?  Your thoughts.  Worth the money?  accuracy?

Just last week I got to handle one of these at a local store.  I know nothing about the way they shoot.  The gun did feel good and it looked nice.

However, for the price its going for, I could have something put together that really excited me.  I'm not into Bushmasters like some people are though.  

Just my 2 cents....

I have one, They shoot great.  If you are willing to spend that much cash on a postban gun its actually a very good deal.  You should be able to get one for $1500.00 easily, and If you sit down with the Bushy Catalog and figure out how much it would cost to build that rifle buying all the parts seperate its well worth it.

Great value, and It might be a good investment.

What happend to my old Username, do you guys cancel them if you dont login for a certain amount of time?

Iagree with  REELESTATE  You can't build one any cheaper.  And the thing is Sooooooo good looking (IMHO) I have mine on lay-away right now. Price in Michigan $1260. Seems to be a good buy to me as I see some are being sold for $1500  I'm betting on it being a good investment??  If not,  It's still a great looker and shooter.

I got mine for 1350, I love it. There is a tad bit wobble between lower and upper though I'm not sure if thats standard with all AR's. I'm gonna get one of those special pins to tighten it up. I've gone to the range twice with it, can't say how accurate is since I'm not the best shooter in the world yet [:)]

Do not worry about the slack. Most ARs have this. It does not affect accuracy. The pins and wedges that tighten things up serve only to give the gun a  (better) feel.  This info is from Armalite's web site under Tecnical notes.

It won't affect the accuracy 1 iota, but it might make the gun tougher to open.

Why bother?  It's just a perception thing.

Love my 25th ann. carbine...shoots great (based on the 2 other AR15's I have owned).

Here is a pic.:

Whats the weight of the anniversary edition carbine?
I read on a thread somewhere that Bushmaster is going to offer it as part of their regular line later this year without the nickel plating which I don't find so attractive.  Is this true?

Unicron....what did you wrap your stock with....is that parachute cord...whatever it is, it looks good....better than the foam or whatever it is that comes on it.....also noticed you removed the buttpad...was it too long?
