Wrong. Bushmaster was purchased by Cerberus who also bought remington and marlin. Cerberus promised the BM people they would continue to build BM AR's there. Well, they lied and moved production. The former owner had a non compete clause but when cerberus lied and moved production elsewhere the clause was void so he fired up the old BM plant and is now making better rifles than BM.

Quality has fallen off on all guns made by cerberus owned companies because they are about one thing. Money. Its a shame because remington and marlin were once fine guns you could pass down through generations and not have to worry if it will hold up.

I agree bushys are not reliable at all, but I have put 3000+ rounds through my Windham, and it preformed flawlessly. I own a few Colts and it preforms as well as they do. Which really surprised me since I picked up the Windham for around $800.

You did see where I said I don't know why he parted ways right.
