Bushmaster AR15
 
Went to a gun store today and was selling my old H&R 20 gauge. I went to look for AR's and I found a Bushmaster for $895. I put $275 on it and I just owe $670 now.

Nice! I saw a Bushmaster M4 Patrol (5.56) at WM the other day and they wanted $997 so that sounds like a decent price.

That is a good price....well, it is what I paid 4 years ago!

Which model? It's not a C-15 is it?

The reason I ask is $900 can get you a darn good AR or something much less. Some places still are selling $600 guns for inflated prices. Better to find out now.

It's an ORC from what it looked like. Had no front sights or rear.

I have seen a lot of mixed reviews on Bushmaster since they were taken over by Remington. I have one and love it. I have put over 2000 rds through it, mostly steel, and it has not missed one beat, no jams, no broken parts, nothing. The only regret I have is that I bought mine right after Sandy Hook and got gouged. It was relative to everything else at that time though.
I paid much more than you did and would buy another one in a heartbeat at that price.
I am about to buy a RRA lower and slowly put together a new one, but I am going to shoot the crap out of the BM just to see how much abuse it can take.

I bought mine in 2001. No complaints. Can't remember price exactly, thinking around just under $800.

Just purchased a lightly used bushmaster xm-15 with millet red dot, 2 preban large cap mags (live in mass so any mag holding more than 10 rds must be preban), locking carry case, factory case & 500 rds of ammo for $1300.......it belonged to a friend of mine & I had fired it on a few occasions & really enjoyed it

Bought my bushmaster at wally world couple months ago for 947.00 plus tax. Put a weaver 4-16 x 50mm scope on it last week. Took to range to sight in last 3 shot group 3/4 inch@ 100 yds. Very happy with mine - next purchase a free float handguard.

Quent, I had two C-15's, got them back in the day for $600 each, both were excellent shooters. Sold them both during the panic for a nice chunk of change. Like it or not, the days of $600 AR's are long gone. The panic's over for now, (there's another one coming, sorry to say), but prices haven't come down at all around here. The average price for an AR, any AR is $1000. Buy the pieces, (if you can find them), to build your own, it'll still run you $1000-$1100. And 5.56 ammo's still a b*tch to find. Maybe it's different where you are, but not here.
