Buy once, cry once. Instead of buying cheap and upgrading later, buy a great brand (Noveske) and then figure out what you want to upgrade (which won't be much on a Noveske). I also suggest building one with quality parts.

Bushmasters are solid imo.

A Bushmaster m4 a3 at the local Walmart runs about $870. Sounds like a good deal. I'll be checking my local Academy!

Not a bad price... And there is absolutely nothing wrong with a bushmaster.

Yeah, I'm no black gun guru by any means, but my understanding is that Bushmaster is a respectable weapon. And that's a great price, IMHO.

That isnt a sale i dont tbink. Bushmaster makes a "sport" model similar to the S&W sport. It retails for 699 and comes with a cheap scope. Is that the one?

If so just go ahead and get the s&w sport. Its a better rifle that the cheap bushy

actually most S&W's come with only a chrome lined chamber where most bushys come with the whole barrell chrome lined.

The bushmaster is a really nice AR. Nothing wrong with that gun at all.

I'm assuming this is about the busmaster CAR-15 that comes with the bushnell reddot scope. The reciever is polymer, which is not necessarily a bad thing. I've considered buying it myself. That price however is not a sale. If they told you that they are lying. It's been that price for atleast a year now.

Building a nice one with what you want won't run you hardly much more than that.

I posted in the last AR thread about classicarms.us selling a delton upper and lower parts kit with all other accessories for $450. All you need is a stripped lower reciever.

Didn't think about the sport model. As I said, I am no black gun guru.

the same kit from del-ton.com is only 20 bucks more, yet you have the ability to customize a bunch of stuff, like chrome lined barrel and such, that might end up saving you money in the long run

some of their upgrades are kind of a rip off though


only other issue ordering from del-ton is that they build to order, so it takes 4-6 weeks

That was the only negative thing I could find about it. It doesn't say if anything is chrome lined or what type feed ramps it has

The s&w sport actually has a vert nice melonite coating that actually has some advantages over chrome lining. Never heard that s&w's werent fully lined or coated. You sure about that?
