Default Opinions on the Bushmaster patrolman m4a3

Hello guys, I am trying to decide what my next gun purchase is going to be. The Bushmaster patrolman m4a3 is one of my options.. It is a little more than what I originally intended to spend but Ive picked it up and held it and now I cant stop thinking about it. This would be the first ar that I have owned.. I have only had about 500 rounds thru a few of my buddys ar. If anyone has had any experience with this rifle could you please share your thoughts on it. Thanks

My buddy Chuck is the supervising lieutenant and AR armorer from a local Pd, and tells me Bushmaster has been having ALOT of problems for the past few years. They will no longer purchase them, or DPMS.


I could make a list of a bunch of guns i have, or "have", or wish I had. Why would one feel compelled to provide that infornation freely? Do you feel the need to show off? Is it some immature game of oneupsmanship?

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

Check into a Spikes tactical, Daniel Defense, BCM, or Stag

If you dont mind building a lower " its really not hard to do " you could buy any one of PSA's rifle kits and a stripped lower and have right around $700 or less in a complete gun from a 16" carbine , 16" mid to a 16" hammer forged dissipator or there 20" hammer forged A2 From $499 to $619 plus a $79 stripped lower
