I'm home on leave and have a chance to trade in my H&K USP 9mm and a Mini14 for a Bushmaster. The Bushy I was looking at has a fluted barrel and a tactical grip. It's also a flattop. Any of you guys have this set-up. What do you guys think about it?

I would get the non-fluted BBL, and save the $ for more ammo etc.

Have a 20" fluted V-Match. Very accurate and I like having less weight when carrying it up and down the hills.

What length bbl.? I hope you have another duty pistol so you have a sidearm, too. Sounds like a good trade, although I'd prefer the Hogue grip/forend combo. The fluted bbl. is a half-pound lighter, I believe.' Go for it.

NewARGuy is right. I have a 20" flat-top with a vortex flashhider and it carries like a 16" carbine, even with a scope mounted.

I do. I've got a Sig 245 that's why i'm willing to trade in my H&K. I can't stand 9mm either. Also my mini is jnk compared to my AR so I don't feel bad about losing it either.

I have a 20" A3 flat-top withe a fluted barrel, and I can vouch for the benefits in weight reduction. That's the main advantage of fluting. Sounds like you're making a good trade.
