Default Core 15 S&W or Bushmaster

My local gun dealer is going to give me a deal on one of the three that I decide? An Core 15 a4 Scout with 3 mags, S&W MP15 sport or a Bushmaster Carbon 15! I have never shot an AR style gun my budget is pretty low and Iam going off what the dealer is telling me... Iam trading in a gun and he is giving me the choice of the three for the same price... I know that the S&W sport doesn't have the dust cover and foward assist but the quality looks good... The dealer is telling me that the Core 15 is the best deal and quality.... What do you think?

What's wrong with the carbon 15... Is the quality issues? Or is its parts cheap?

Both. You can't change out the handguards to a free float system and it's a polymer gun. The upper is not mil-spec and I wouldn't dare shoot 5.56 through it.

I'd say the Core 15 its a higher end rifle the S&W is a great rifle but minus a few elements that the Core 15 has such as dust cover forward assist also has a higher price tag then the sport

My 2

After much investigation, I went with the S&W, optics ready version. My verdict: Never been happier with a firearms purchase (and I've purchased a few). Seriously - 100% satisfied customer

I have never seen a negative comment about the Sport, other than : no forward assist and no dust cover. If they don't matter to you, it surely will not matter in terms of the rifle's performance

It is really getting boring that reviews are posted by people that haven't a clue about what they are talking about. Well I guess that isn't anything new, most people said the same thing about Glocks when they first came out.

Get the gun that suites you best and gives you the best deal. As to C-15's I think it is a very good gun for the price.

This one's had over 1,000 rounds of 223/5.56 through it.

Shoot 5.56 through my C-15 all the time never had a issue. The only problem I have ever had with it is the top rail on the upper receiver is not part of the upper receiver and is held on with a screw, and came loose after extended shooting, once I put lock tight on the screw it hasn't come loose since.

Read the bottom of my signature and learn it. I build AR-15's for a living. I've had plenty of Carbon 15's in my shop and I know what you can and can't do with the Carbon 15. I have even had discussions with the techs at Bushmaster about them.

I love Glocks and it's the only handgun I trust my and my family's life with.
