I am looking at a Bushmaster M4 at a gunstore. The store owner claims to have had it about a year. It is supposed to be factory new and comes with factory mag, sling, and manual. Only thing is he said it didn't come to him in the Bushmaster hard case, so no case included. That makes me wonder if it has been previously owned or has been put together from a kit. Some questions:
1) How long has Bushmaster shipped their guns in the hard case? If the guy received it a year ago, should it have had the case with it?
2) Is $700 a fair price for this gun, A2M4 14.5inch barrel with muzzle brake, if it is indeed factory new.
