I have three Colts. Two old SP-1 sporters (Full length rifle and CAR-15 carbine) and a newer LE6940.

Never had a single problem of any kind with any of them.

Go for the Smith&Wesson man. Their barrels are made better, they have a better warrantee, and their customer service is light years ahead of Bushmaster.
