I have several Bushmaster weapons. I would put their AR-15 rifles up against anyone's. Their quality is excellent for the price, and they make reputable weapons. In 5 rifles from Bushmaster and thousands of rounds spanning several years, I have yet to encounter a single problem.

I know I'll offend several folks be saying this, but........

I have a Bushmaster dissapator, 16 barrel carbine with a TA31 ACOG, and it's been accurate, handy and 100 percent reliable, through over 5000 rounds or more. For the moment at least, it's my "go to" gun.

I've heard mixed reviews about them. The main thing is to make sure they have what you want in stock before ordering and paying. They aren't very good when it comes to back orders. Days can often turn into weeks and sometimes months. That's tough when they have your money.

R guns is a C&R distributer. Ask them who makes their Ar's! I've done a bunch of business w/ them on collectables. Always 1st rate. Where are you getting your information?????? This type of post can kill a distributer and put dozens of people out of work.

From several forums like this one. They have good deals, but I've talked to several guys who ordered ammo, only to find that they didn't have it in stock, or else sold out before they filled their order. You know how that goes. I just went through this with Wideners on some powder. I ordered and got some. A while later I placed another order for more and it was in stock when I placed the order. It never got shipped after almost three weeks so I called and cancelled. They sold it out before they marked it "sold out" on their website. The bottom line is you can't sell what you don't have.

I've had great luck w/ R Guns as a distributer. I can't comment on the quality of the AR's they have. Again, call and ask questions.

Of the 3 I would get the S&W. Only for the fact S&W uses Melonite QPQ treatment on their barrels. Careful which model S&W you get. They have a stripped down "sport" version which lacks a Forward assist and Ejection port door. If that is what you are looking at, go with the one of the other two. Nothing wrong with the "Sport" mind you, just not what a first time buyer needs/wants IMHO.
