Hey Guys... I just came across this bushmaster rifle, but I'm needing a little help on getting some more info on it. It looks like the ARM pistol, but it's not. Anyone see this one before? Anyone got any info/history on it??

WHAT IS THIS THING???!!!

That would be the orignal Bushmaster Assault Rifle. They made those before they got into the AR business. I think it uses AR fire control parts and mags, but not anything else.

It looks to me like an orange cat wearing a six-color desert boonie hat. . .wait a second, there's a gun there, too. Never mind. [BD]

That was one of Mack Gwinns early projects. He also built the Bushmaster Arm Gun, which was a direct copy of the Colt IMP. Here's the IMP's bigger/older brother: [img]http://www.snsfirearms.com/Resources/BMarmpistol.JPG[/img]

So does anyone have an idea of what this thing is worth!? This is the first one I've ever seen. The arm pistol I've seen, as a matter of fact, I've owned about 4 of them.... Got one for sale too! heheheh

I'm not sure what you've got there but the original Bushmaster as I remember it was a type of bull pup design(and I believe was legally a pistol) with the magazine behind the fire control group which would pivot. Whats in the picture is some sort of Kalashnikov action and the rear sight is very similar to that on a Galil Hadar.I don't know what it is but I know that I wouldn't want it.
