alright guys, im sorta deciding my next rifle. was either thinking of getting a m16 or m4 civilian copy or springfield m1a. my question would be what are the best, most reliable and accurate ar15's in y'alls opinion?
i have a few bushmasters, they all are sub moa, most WAY under
Bushmaster has made rifles for the military and they have been very reliable... i wouldnt trust Colt
as far as RRA or Bushmaster, there both good, id prefer Bushmaster
i havnt yet fired RRA but even my Bushmaster M4 Carbine gets down around 3/4 MOA, my 20" target model (w/ hbar) shoots much better and my varminter puts factory ammo through the same hole at 100y
i vote Bushmaster... they cost $100 more than RRA though
Instead of buying a bushmaster, you should get a dpms. Reason being dpms biult 60% of there parts. So in fact you are paying for the name, when you get the same quality in the dpms. I know this for a fact, and that is something for me to say, cause I am a bushmaster ar15 master armorer. If it was me though I would buy the rock river! They are hand fitted and have better triggers.
herd a lot of stuff about DPMS bolts breaking or atleast their chrome bolts... not entirely sure
i never seen them break just hear about it from what ive seen in DPMS personally there good weapons and i like them
If you can get a few people together I can can you a M4 collapsable with detatch carry handle, step down heavy barrel, chrome bolt , and a forged reciever from dpms for 859.99 that is about 75$ below msrp if I remember
I don't have a whole lot of experience with a variety of ar's, but it's my favorite. I've heard from someone who does that the Armalite 2-stage trigger about the best. Also that the Bushmaster .308's are as accurate as Armalite or whoever, but less pricey. I'd like to have an SR-25. I think they are out of production and gaining value; the mags alone are usually $90-100+. But listen to the guys with the first hand experience. I gotta say that this sucks, a topic on my favorite gun and I can't contribute much.
EDIT: One other thought; a buddy of mine had and Olypic Arms for a while and I wasn't that impressed with build, they ground down some of the egdes with a really coarse grinding wheel and you could really tell. It's accuracy wasn't bad for a basic plinker though. I've also seen some finishes on them that weren't that good.
Well where should I start???? Okay again, armalite recievers suck, the crack they are too thin, biult poorly for te 308! There two stage trigger good, I took one and reworked it and now it is frickin awesome. I use it for my 458 socom. Now I already talked to mele on the phone about this, but until they start releasing the recievers buy themselves, than no one is biulding anything. I am waiting for dpms to ship me some along with the 308 m4 collapsables that I am promised. Of course I am still waiting on my 6.8 uppers. Sniperdog
