I just retired after 24 years in the Army and am interested if Bushmaster has or had any contracts for sales to the Army. I know in addition to COLT, General Motors and other has produced M16 rifles.
By the way, just got a Bushmaster XM15 E2S M4 a few months back. Never been happier! Fit and finish as good or better than COLT.
Just the opinion of one happy owner.
