Anyone have one or fired one yet? I see it accepts FAL mags thats a good thing.
That AK brake has to be better than that crappy brake on the AR10.


Opinions?

  I'll stick with my three sloted muzzle brake on my loud ass Armalite AR10A2 Carbine. That is untill the sunset of the AWB. Then I'm going for a match barrel with a can.

Dunno, but i'm in for one as soon as they offer it with a chrome lined barrel and the ban sunsets and I can put a real FH on it.

I think with the 20 inch CL barrel andFAL mag combination, it will be a winner.

The fact that it accepts the FAL mags says Bushmaster put a little bit of thought into it.

Good enough for me. Price is high, though.

They're really proud of it for $1700+.


I like that it uses FAL mags though.

Seems way expensive to me.  FAL mag thing is good though.  But damn, it's expensive.

Note that they made it use FAL mags by removing the 6 o'clock locking lug!  Contemplate that for a minute.

I'm a huge Bushmaster fan, but I don't believe this design is up to snuff.

In a few months, Armalite will be able to sell 20-round AR10 mags for around $20 each.  That's going to eat up the price advantage of the FAL mags quite a bit.

Not necessarily bad, did they beef up the existing lugs at all?  I'm sure some geek calculated the strength necessary and figured it was OK... maybe... I hope.

What's an FH?  I will be putting an FS on my AR10.

So, right now, it compares to the Eagle Arms AR10 at about $700 more.  That's a fucking HUGE difference.
1.  No chrome lined barrel
2.  1 year warranty

It compares more realistically to an Eagle instead of an ArmaLite.  

So, if they chrome line the barrel, how much more would it be?

It's almost kind of funny.  You would think some people never heard of a .308 AR until Bushie makes it.

I prefer a flash suppressor, instead of a flash hider.

This is a flash hider:
