I called Bushmaster Customer Service back in March about ordering an M17S Bullpup through my FFL dealer. We were told that they'd start making a new run by the end of April, so I put a deposit down, and my dealer placed an order. Since I live in Maine, just up the road from the Bushmaster facility, I had images of trying out my new rifle in May. Well, every month since then, I've called Bushmaster and I've been given the same line, being told that they'd be producing new Bullpups at "the end of the month." Now, the latest guy said it would be August, or more likely September! Jarrod, what's going on? Are there any firm plans to make any M17S's this year? If Bushmaster is waiting for enough orders to make a production run profitable, I would understand that completely, but it is irritating to be repeatedly lied to, month after month.
By the way, I own one Busmaster, four Colts, and one PWA, and have purchased many parts and tools from Bushmaster to keep 'em running, and I've always been impressed and pleased with the service I've received from Bushmaster, so this is my only complaint.
