Fight4yourrights is good for one.

Anyone have experience with the composite Cav Arms lower?  Injection molded with glass isn't that impact resistant.  Even the long strand glass they use is pretty short and acts more like a filler.

That's the part that worries me.

At least they do provide a good warranty.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 7:37:09 AM EDT
I sure hope we can pull this off. Keeping the cost down, I like that. The special sn #, forget it if it adds to the cost. Great idea, I know it will take some work but we will have alot of happy campers on the board. [beer]
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 7:42:12 AM EDT
I would be a maybe. Brother lives in Texas so I may go in with him if the price is in the ballpark discussed. Thanks
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 8:29:59 AM EDT
Please add me to the Maybe list.  Once we get the config. straight, I will jump to the YES list.  

Link Posted: 2/14/2001 8:31:20 AM EDT
I have 2 maybes here.

1 is me, which is actually a most likely.

1 is a co-worker.  Wants to know final cost.

Sign me up! I just put my name on the other list, and am doing the same here! Don't want to miss out on this!
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 9:08:53 AM EDT
Add me to the maybe list.  It depends on the final config.  I vote for an all bushy M4gery.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 9:22:40 AM EDT
If the price is at the $540 listed or close for a Bushmaster shorty or M4gery I'll take one.  I am not really interested in the plastic lower configuration however.

****** I am more concerned with configuration than exact price.   I will end up buying a shorty AR of some configuration in the future anyway, it would be great if it could be a good deal and identified with this group! ******
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 9:25:08 AM EDT
Count me in as a maybe.  What I'm really looking for is a 24" V-Match, but at least this way I'll have the lower and just need another upper.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 9:39:08 AM EDT

You should put me on the maybe list due to the price and final configuration. I have the money to buy a Bushmaster at $531.00, but if the price goes above that by a lot I might not be able to afford it. As I stated in another thread I am not interested in either a mixed parts gun, or a something that I could buy at any gun shop (it should have something unique about it, like special serial numbers, or the site's logo even if it means a increase in price). As for if the rifle is a sixteen inch carbine, a 20 inch HBAR, or a M4, I have cast my vote, but I will go with the group's decision.

Link Posted: 2/14/2001 9:43:05 AM EDT
Add to me to the maybe list, depends on the final configuration that is agreed to. I am not interested in a 20" model or mixed upper/lower. Thanks to all involved.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 10:52:54 AM EDT
G&B- Can you please switch me to the "maybe" list? I am really interested,but being a college student, I don't know if I will be able to afford it. I will be able to tell you for sure as soon as you guys are ready to make an order.

Link Posted: 2/14/2001 1:12:08 PM EDT
put me on the maybe list till we know the what,where and how much.mmk
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 1:20:38 PM EDT
Please put me on the "maybe" list until we know for sure how much and what the config will be.  I would be more interested in an all Bushy gun in 20 inch but would not rule out others if the price is right.

same here.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 1:53:34 PM EDT
Please add me to the "maybe" list.

I'd be more interested in a single manufacturer with special serial # rather than a parts mix-n-match - even if it is a bit more expensive.

... that being said, I'd most likely STILL be interested in any mix-n-match with a very reasonable price.

Thanks for organizing this!
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 2:02:54 PM EDT
Count me in as a maybe.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 2:29:42 PM EDT
I would like to sign up as a maybe until a definate price.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 2:54:59 PM EDT
If the price is anywhere close to the $531 listed in the other thread, I'm in for sure.  I prefer the M4 configuration, but I could be talked into another lightweight model.  I have two 20" HBAR's, so I'm not interested in going that route.

BTW, I really think the special serial number series is a SUPER idea.  Even if it's a few bucks more, it would add a special flavor to the rifles.

Link Posted: 2/14/2001 2:58:44 PM EDT
If we get to 100 rifles we can get the custom serial numbers at no charge   AR15.com 001 thru AR15.com 100

Link Posted: 2/14/2001 3:03:20 PM EDT
Just a thought on the serial number thing.  There was also talk of possibly having the logo put on the receiver.  I would think this would be a much costlier option due to having the die made.  They are going to use some combination of letters and numbers for a serial number anyway.  I would think it would be cheaper to have the serial number specific.  It is more of an issue of them having to mess around to accomidate that then having anything new made.

Just my thoughts on the issue.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 3:10:45 PM EDT
Thanks,Whats a ballpark time for cash.

Link Posted: 2/14/2001 3:14:23 PM EDT
Please put me on the maybe list pending final configuration and price.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 3:20:40 PM EDT
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 4:17:10 PM EDT
Put mo on the yes list if it a carbine flattop, no plastic lower, can't go wrong with Bushmaster.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 4:31:40 PM EDT
put me on, pending the config. info
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 4:44:05 PM EDT
One more for the maybe list please.....dependent on price manufacturer and config,.

Link Posted: 2/14/2001 5:17:29 PM EDT
Put me in on the maybe depending on price and configuration. Most likely yes.

I know this is very early, but could you put me down for AR15.com 069 or AR15.com 007.....  Please tell who'll ever be incharge of distribution......
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 6:52:37 PM EDT
If I get to move to TX, I am in. Unfortunately, being a Kali resident counts me out whether I like it or not.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 7:41:29 PM EDT
downgrade me to a maybe until I know what configuration it is. I really dont want a mongrel rifle (  no pun intended)> Would like a bushy 20 but will be OK with a M 4gery
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 7:58:13 PM EDT
Count me in the yes group
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 7:58:18 PM EDT
Put me down as a strong maybe.

Link Posted: 2/14/2001 8:32:31 PM EDT
Put me on the Maybe list depending on config.
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 8:49:11 PM EDT
Put me down for two maybe's.  My friend & I are going to a H&K Tactical medic course and they offer a "special price" on a H&K firearm!  Don't know how much or on what weapons.  I will probably only be able to get one or the other.  My rich buddie will probably get both knowing him! Lucky bastage.  Would prefer Bushie with special logo/serial #'s.  Hope this goes thru...
Sounds like a good chance for us AR15.com'ers to get a unique rifle at a fair price.   Thanx Tim
Link Posted: 2/14/2001 9:31:45 PM EDT
I have got two maybes here, waiting on more info and if as stated, one will be a yes.

Link Posted: 2/14/2001 10:50:10 PM EDT

My pardner has asked that I put in a 'maybe' for two (2) units...

Final commitment based on configuration and price...


Link Posted: 2/14/2001 11:15:55 PM EDT
$500.00 ~ $600.00 Bushmaster with AR15.com serial #'s .... definately YES if it's all Bushmaster and I don't care about barrel length. This will make a great 1st Bushmaster for my AR collection. M4gery would be REALLY nice though.    --- Les
Link Posted: 2/15/2001 3:00:27 AM EDT
Please disregard my deleted post.

Put me on as a strong maybe for a 500-600; no plastic lower.
Link Posted: 2/15/2001 4:31:05 AM EDT
Put me on the YES list

St. Louis Bob
Link Posted: 2/15/2001 4:55:38 AM EDT
Arock's on the YES list for one.

Arock out.
Link Posted: 2/15/2001 5:37:20 AM EDT
The Serial # at no charge is from Cavalry Arms.

Nobody manufacturers all of their own parts, so there might be a case for using all Bushmaster parts & Cav Arms lower receivers to create a unique rifle.   Will depend upon the price we can get from Bushmaster for putting together a "unique" rifle.  

We will talk to Bushmaster today about special ser# & a up charge if any.  

If this goes through we (Castle Arms) may purchase a few extras for people like lordtrader to buy later when their circumstances change.   Being in IL near St Louis would let us distribute some through midwestern gun shows or at AR15.com shoots like TBRS provided we can get a fellow FFL to work with us.  
Link Posted: 2/15/2001 5:50:57 AM EDT
Count me in as a strong maybe and I may have two others convinced depending on final price and config.  I vote for M4
Link Posted: 2/15/2001 6:40:29 AM EDT
Link Posted: 2/15/2001 1:31:56 PM EDT
If its going to be a complete rifle then put me down as definitely in.

Link Posted: 2/15/2001 3:36:30 PM EDT
Please add me to the "maybe" list dependent on config. & price.  
Link Posted: 2/15/2001 4:22:58 PM EDT
Its SCAR I do not want 4 riffles. I want 1 if they are complete and 4 stripped lowers if thats the way we go. I also say if we go complete guns then we get something in writeing from Bushmaster say that there will be be no more runs with our logo on them. And We need to get a certifacate of Autenication from them saying that this is a true AR15.com gun. This may help in the resale and colectors market.
Link Posted: 2/15/2001 5:24:50 PM EDT
Saw a CAV-15 at the last gunshow that I went to and I still would prefer Bushmaster quality.

Getting a CAV-15 in the future however is not totally out of the question.

my .02 worth

If it is an all Bushmaster rifle, put me in for 1 20" A2 for less than $550.00
Link Posted: 2/15/2001 6:26:31 PM EDT

Definitely - 16" carbine flattop - HBAR or fluted HBAR (fluted preferable).  Also definately if I can get the same in a 20".

Maybe - M4
