I have a Bushmaster 20 inch barreled h-bar. I am considering trading it for a colt m4. I will use it mainly for plinking and home defense. Should I keep the AR I have now or trade for the M4? I don't really know the pros and cons of each configuration. I would like to hear your guys thoughts on this.

Well, you can tell by my screen name what I'm going to say...[;)] I'm just a big fan of the carbine. They're more maneuverable in close quarters and still just as fun for plinking as a 20" model.

DON'T SALE ! Just purchase the M4, you need more than one AR !

Keep your 20" Bushmaster and buy the M4 outright. I guarantee that after you make the trade you'll wish you still had the 20".

I would love to have both. The only problem is I am short on money and I'm not sure when I will be able to afford an M4, could be years. I just hate to pass up this deal.

Instead of trading the whole thing or buying a complete new one, why not just get yourself a M4 style upper? They're not priced to bad if you get them without the bolt carrier etc... [IMG]http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/uppers/Images/pura2b14m4my.jpg[/IMG]

Go with the Colt M4 (assuming it is a REAL Colt M4). Check everything - ask lots of questions. Tweak over in Troubleshooting is a fountain of knowledge on Colt products.
