I had NEVER heard of Bushmaster until I was looking for an ARF.

I stumbled across this site and just asked the question what is the best ARF to buy. MOST everyone said Bushmaster... so there I went and got one.


This was many moons ago and due to my state's laws (either they change the laws or I move) it is my last one I will ever buy. I sure as hell wish I got involved earlier.

Anyway... what say you??

Naw, I already had 3 AR15s when I found this site.
But you S.O.B.s are responsible for the last 5 I bought!

Bought an AR15 in '93 and found this place 9 years later.

I decided to build my own, and found AR15.com while searching for parts on yahoo.

I was talking to my local FFL late last year and noticed that he had a bunch of AR-15 parts laying around. I talked to him about AR-15s, and he pretty much talked me into one. He told me that if I was adventurous enough I could actually build one. I thought that was hella cool. He told me building the lower was fairly easy, but I was not so sure (He has over 30 years experience, so of course it's gonna be easy for him!).

I remembered hearing about ARFCOM at another forum, so I decided to see what all the fuss was about. The first time I loaded up the site and looked around, I said ", this place has a lot of information!" After looking around here and asking questions for a few months, I decided to take the plunge and start on my first AR-15. I'm gonna piece everything together, including the upper. I already have it half-way done (only need the barrel assembly, rear sight, FA, and ejection port cover)!

I could not have done it without the help of this site and the people here. Thanks a bunch!

My brother got a Bushmaster catalog and I thought they looked cool. I wanted to learn more and did an internet search, finding this place.

Became interested in becoming an arf owner in mid '99; found the site and bought my first a few weeks later.

arfkom first. it took me a year to build my first AR. funds were tight and it wasn't my top priority. oh, how things have changed. i think i had 3 guns when i first found this site...i have around 10 now but have bought and sold a bunch since then. i think i read for a few months before even registering.

Found AR'S, Then AR15.COM...What a combo
Link Posted: 10/3/2004 2:11:26 AM EDT
I found AR's, then ARFCOM.
funny. The two were about 15 minutes and a half of a fifth apart. . . .

ARFCOM, then ARFS. Thanks Mom!

Found the site first...was looking for info prior to my first purchase.
Of course, because of this site, I couldnt leave good enough alone, and then spent probably a thousand bucks modifying my first AR

Bought a Colt Hbar & 9mm back in '93 & a Bushmaster carbine a year later.

Joined up here when I realized the AWB was actually going to sunset and I could go shopping again. Scott

I wanted the rifle, but I was on the site for 7 months before I bought one.
