Smith and Wesson M&P15 vs Bushmaster carbine AR15
Hello every one !! Let me start by saying that this forum has help me out a lot on my firearm decisions so please help me out on my first AR-15. I am not looking to built a AR but I am trying to decide between a Bushmaster carbine or a Smith and Wesson M&P15. Both are currently on sale where i live. Yes am strickly on a budget! So lets get down to it.

I want a AR15 for deer hunting, home defence, and as silly as this sound, I want it to be combat efficient for the big zombie apocalypse :D.

So both of these rifle are going at 700 where I live. The Bushmaster comes with a Bushneil red dot and two 30rds mag and a Hard case. I have herd nothing but good things about the bushmaster, All though its is super light, it still troubles me that the frame is polymer.
The M&P15 comes with a 10rnd mag and has on stock iron sites. Even though the busmaster seemd like a better deal, I just love the metal frame on the M&P. PLEASR HELP ME!!! I really don't know which one to get but My heart is leaning to the M&P15

To keep it short an sweet, the bushmasters are decent but the smith is higher quality. Id take an M&P any day.

So you're buying not building? Go for the m&p.

Yup the Carbon 15 has had some separation issues with the upper receiver , not all of them but different instances where the top rail has come unbonded and separated , any chance you get the opportunity to buy a alum receiver AR over a poly or Carbon take advantage and buy the better made forged aluminum material

I'd take the S&W Sport any day over the Carbon 15. Even though I'm sold on Glock I don't trust polymer AR receivers.

Actually I'd look at PSA for a much better rifle and I bet they have some Black Friday sales coming up!

Smith and Wesson, Bushmaster is great, but they're not Smith and Wesson

Quentin 11-19-2012 01:32 AM

Yeah Bushmaster is a lot of things but they sure aren't Smith&Wesson! :D :D
