I figure that this is as good a way to introduce myself as any….
Since selling my Colt 6700 I had all but sworn of the AR series. Then on a fateful Tuesday morning (this past week) I stumbled upon a famed Bushmaster and in 308 to boot! I did some preliminary haggling with the dealer but I did not take her home.
I was in love….well at least in lust with the rifle.
All night I rationalized why I needed this rifle.
1. I have a STG58 carbine so mags are not a problem.
2. I have 308 ammo.
3. It’s not a Colt. (Sorry Colt fans)
4. I’ve got the bug and there’s only one cure.
Wednesday comes and I am at the dealer buying not only the rifle but a scope and some flip ups to dress her with.
I got her home and gave her a quick cleaning and mounted the scope. I made it to the range but I only had time to zero her prior to work.
Astounding job Bushmaster!http://www.gunsnet.net/album/data//500/3791BAR.JPG
A3 20in w/ Skeleton Stock & Izzy Brake, Swift 687M w/flip covers on a Colt flat top mount.
I put the L4A1 mag in the rifle to show how much it looks like a big mutant AR15. It also functions 100% in the rifle.
So naturally my next step was to register at ar15.com.
