hey, i was wondering if anyone had any experience with the bushmaster varminter rifle. http://www.bushmaster.com/shopping/weapons/lr-24v.asp
i was thinking about maybe, possibly, if the shemale lets me, buying one. i've heard guys complain about bushmaster triggers before-i don't know if there's any validity to that, so i was just kind of wondering about things like that and any other possible bugs that i'd have to work out if i got one. any pros and cons you guys have and any additional information you guys had would be much obliged.

if money is no object go with custom built.

Stock bushmaster triggers are not the greatest. If that rifle comes w/ a match trigger it will be a vast improvment over stock.

I have a varminter aka (Varminator) with the 2 stage trigger. It shoots penny sized groups at 100yards with bulk ammo from cabelas. Go for it. I highly reccommend it.

I think it look like a good rifle. If you are concerned about the trigger you can always give it a 5min trigger job, of buy a 2 stage trigger later.

I've had a chance to handle and shoot one. VERY nice rifle, lighter than I expected and handled well. Shoots fantastic.

Just recently purchased a Bushmaster Varmit rifle, and I am very please with it. I "lapped" the bore 50 times with bore compound prior to shooting it. I have found the rifle to favor the BH (blue box) 52gr match ammo. Once I got her dialed in, worst grouping was 5 shots in a quater at 100 yards, with the best grouping being five shots in a dime at 100 yards.
