I'm thinking about picking up a Bushmaster CMP marked Ar-15. It is really heavy and has a great trigger. Right around 700. Does anyone have any experience with these? I guess they made these ones for a year or so in the 90s.
Any idea how many rounds were fired through it? If it was used for xtc it could have many thousands of rounds down the barrel at a rapid pace. Should have a 2 stage target trigger, heavy barrel, either 1/4 or if replaced 1/8 minute sights. They are excellent guns but got used hard in High Power matches. HTH.
Had one in the 90s. Very accurate and really only suitable for match shooting. Mine had a great trigger, no issues with functionality. Even heavier if one uses the lead weight in the butt stock that came with them.
As noted, many of them were put to "hard" use and may have had thousands of rounds down the tube? But that's what they were made for.
IIRC, Bushmaster dropped their participation in the CMP program due to complaints from dealers over the better CMP prices?
Sold mine when I stopped shooting hi power matches some years ago.
