As is common, you are better off ordering from a wholesaler than directly from the manufacturer. Joe Gun Guy is going to pay more factory direct than a regular high volume customer.

Usually priced directly from the MFG are going to be quite a bit higher, do you have a dealer in your area? I recently bought a patrolmans carbine from a local dealer for $875, and Bushmasters site lists it for well over $1000, as for worth the price, im not sure what you mean, pretty much any AR, regardless of make, are pretty closely priced. Unless you have something custom in mind, you shouldnt be paying over $1000 for any stock AR, regardless of make or configuration.

My M-4 clone was $900.00.

That seems fair to me. Great product too!

Get used to waiting on everything to do with the AR.
If not you are going to be a very unhappy puppy all the time.

Keep in mind you get what you pay for. BM is no more expensive than the others it is up to you to search out the deals. You are the one who is controll of your money. They are not taking it out of your wallet. So dont blame someone or some company if you chose to pay to much.

The MSRP is always going to be higher than what you actually pay for. For example look at the MSRP of a car on Honda's Website and then go to the dealer to see how much it really is. Usually it will be lower (if its a high demand item they'll charge the MSRP or even more). So the moral of the story is to buy from retailers like Bravo Co. and the like.

for most of the parts in the Bushy invetory you are better off buyiong from a middle man it will be a little cheaper but their parts are definetly "worth it". Bushy is top notch!

I do shop around Del-Ton Tactical solutions, Eagle Firearms. Great prices fast shipping the only Bushmaster dealer in my area is a over priced snob.

Hell Yes

Excellent product, excellent service. When I ordered my 20" Bushmaster A2 it came in very quick. I have only ever had two Failure To Eject's (FTE's) and I am positive it was because I was using my grandfathers 20 some year old .223 rounds. Also, the 30 round magazine that they ship with their rifle's was bent and they gladly took it back and replaced it with a new one for free in 4 days.

You can't go wrong with them.

Buy from a dealer or the gun exchange on this site. They will also lie for lone lenghs of time on there sites and stated. They stated the Modular rifle as 6.3 lbs for over a year. I bought one on that premise. Then weighed it and it weighed more then my Colt 20" hbar MT6700. The Modular was a carbine. in one year they didn't change their weight, didn't call there distributer to make the changes and every site said the same weight 6.3lbs. But I talked to three people in a row that it was an error. But they didn't tell anyone because it helped sales. There prices are now up there with the Colt. The saying used to be buy a Bushy and don't pay for the Pony the Bushys are just and good. A. their not the Colts are and the Colts hold their value by far the best.

Yes the Bushmaster is worth the price, so is Colt.
Link Posted: 3/23/2006 8:40:40 PM EDT
It used to be the ABC's (Armalite, Bushmaster and Colt) but the addition of brands like LMT, CMT and Rock River Arms into the mainstream has created a plethora of quality products. I had a Bushmaster complete rifle but went with a CMT when I picked up a flat-top upper. Why? The price was less and the quality is as good. Get what you like but for barrels, especially what you are looking for ( a "niche" product), expect to pay a higher premium and wait a while longer.
Link Posted: 3/23/2006 8:43:34 PM EDT
I like their barrels, but a lot of their other stuff is too expensive IMHO.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 2:44:36 PM EDT
I own 3 Colt's and one Bushmaster. Now building a Dissy on Stag upper and lower only the barrel is Bushmaster. I compared my Bushmaster upper and lower to my Stag parts there is really no difference other than a snake or deer head on the side oh yeh the Stag parts cost half as much.
Link Posted: 3/24/2006 3:50:03 PM EDT
I own a few Bushmasters and have ordered 2 complete uppers from them. My custom Dissy upper was ordered on a Monday afternoon and arrived on that Friday. Customer service and parts have always been excellent. Not saying they are any better than some others, but I always "feel" like I'm getting what I paid for.

+1

I built my Dissy with a BM barrel because it was a good deal. Everything else I got from other ARFCOM vendors.

I just built a 14.5" M4 Bushmaster and everytime I ordered parts they came within a week. Only thing I would have had to wait for was the 14.5" barrel with a Phantom FH. Instead, I ordered it with the Phantom2. Came in a week. Other was going to be 6 weeks. I had to ask about the phantom2, guy didn't tell me I had an option. I've been very satisfied with Bushmaster since 99.

imo bushmaster parts and lowers are nicer of the bunch
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 7:07:24 AM EDT
BM is great, but dont buy directly from them as everyone else has said. BM tends to be awful proud of everything they sell. I dont own a BM but I used to and had zero problems. The only reason I dont now is that I build all my own rifles now and like other companys lowers a bit better.

I guess you never ordered antyhing from RRA have you? Wait times are measured in months for uppers and barrels.
Link Posted: 3/25/2006 10:29:22 AM EDT
I'd say no. I'd order a complete upper from CMMG, RRA or Stag. Then add a lower of your choice, pick a stock and componets. You'll save money and get exactly what you want.

Back in 2000 or 01 I wanted a Shorty never had one. only a Colt HBAR20

So after going to sevral Gun shops and told they would sell me a Colt but the Bushmaster is Better?

So I bought the Bushmaster Shorty A1!

To this vary day this Shorty has never Hic Up and trust it fully.

After the shorty I bought a strip lower and a 20hbar Bushwacker. ADDICTIVE just like collecting MICROTECHS!

I think Bushmaster is a Fine company and Has gave ME Good Service.

Good luck with your Bushmaster Jimmmy1111

BTW I do like ordering and paying a little extra from the company. I have my reasons, plus most of the time you wont get a upper thats been screwd with. Unless you know a good dealer that you can trust.
Link Posted: 3/26/2006 4:33:21 PM EDT
Dont get me wrong Bushmaster products are good. I think that they are priceing themselfs out of the reach of the adverage Joe.I would like to build alot more but my name isnt Bill Gates or Donald Trumph
