You guys really shouldn't let Estoner get to you. It's just his Ford/Chevy mentality.
Some people would die before they drove a Ford, and others would say a Chevy belongs in a junkyard. But when it comes down to facts, they are both big dealers because they both produce quality vehicles. The same goes with Bushmaster, Colt and Armalite. Everyone has a favorite brand.
Estoner also mentioned all the bad claims he's read about Bushmaster, so what? If everyone who purchaced a GOOD Bushmaster decided post here on how pleased they were with it, this place would be swamped. And your always gonna remember the BAD ones anyways, since the BAD ones stick out.
Oh, but there more complaints about Bushy than Colt or Armalite, he says. Sure, and it makes perfect sense, since Bushy sells alot more rifles than the both of them. If C&A tried to grab as much market as Bushmaster does, they would have their problems too.
All in all, I'm totally 100% pleased with my Bushmaster. It was well worth the money, and shoots like a dream. So do what I do when you hear from guys like Estoner... ignore him. Arguing with him just gives him the fuel to feed his fire.
