get your minds out of the gutter I have an Armalite in 223/556. It is 'top shelf'. IMO it is head and shoulders over a Bushmaster.
that means i am almost ready for a new AR , been selling parts for a week and got my gun nut up to a grand already ,thinking Armalite or Bushy , whichever i find first , its like a free AR
agreed on the Armalite , i had a chance about 2 months ago , but they had a scope on it , to me package deals are a deal breaker , optics are too personable to each individual , they are not one size fits all
so to buy a rifle with a scope on it that you would never buy under any other circumstance is plane and simple a waste of money , i have a drawer of scopes to prove it , the nephews come over when they need one i just say you know where they are , take what you need ,leave what you dont
they can say they will deduct the money from the scope and take it off , but how much is built in the price for that scope , they take it off and drop the price a hundred and there could be $50 or $75 left still on it that was built into the price , now you're paying for a scope you never wanted and now you are not even getting,its not like they put quality on because that jacks the price too high, if it was a ACOG or holographic i may have went for it because i do not have either
so i implemented the hard no , and bought an Lr308 instead , few more duckets ,but it crossed a variant off my list , the only reason Bushmaster is on my list is because of Remington going out of business , their a solid rifle that the right rifle will be very collectable in the future
but the Armalite is #1 on my list
