    I like my guns to have as many ugly, liberal scaring features as possible. :o

    Yup.

    Too bad I'm not really wanting another AR.

    $999 for the bushmaster name isn't too bad actually (which is sad in itself)

    Would this be a good first AR?
     
  16. Yes. It's a plain, basic rifle. There's no overpriced fancy shit on there. They're accurate and reliable.

    Cool, the price doesn't sound too bad either.

    I've been looking at ARs under $1000, any other ideas where I can shop around? I've been looking at Stag's too.

  19. You're going to have a hell of a time finding a specific rifle in stock anywhere. I pieced together my CMMG for about $1100, and I got to choose what exactly I wanted on it. Of course they're backordered forever now, so you can either wait or pick up something off the shelf. You can hit up local gun stores and see if they have anything, but be prepared to see crazy prices.

    The same company owns both DPMS and Bushmaster.... so there are good alternatives.

    and from what I have read, for a plinker... Olympic uses original Colt M16/ AR15 parts for their rifles.

    Yea, I wasn't looking to build something from the ground up. Wanted to just pick up a complete rifle, ready to go. The local Academy sports and outdoors had NO ARs at all :wtc:. It doesn't have to be fancy, no optics other than iron sights front/rear, a couple 30rd mags, I like the railed hand guards but right now i'm just worried about affordability (which sucks at a time like this).
     
  22. Then pick up the Bushy. It's a good basic rifle, and it won't let you down.

    I'll see what I can do...

    Any one have any input on the FFL thing? How does that work or can you point me in a direction with more info?
     
  24. You have to find a FFL in your area. A gunstore will have a FFL, so will a pawn shop that sells guns. You can also search for individuals that will do FFL transfers through http://www.gunbroker.com/user/DealerNetwork.asp Once you find a FFL you want to use, you contact them and have them send their info to wherever you are buying the gun (like AIM.) Then, you call up AIM and purchase the gun, and tell them that you had your FFL send his info to them. Hopefully, they will have seen it and will say "we got it." Then they ship the gun to your FFL, and you go pick it up from your FFL. Your FFL will do the required paperwork and you pay him his fee. Then you go home with your gun.

    Well that doesn't sound as bad as I thought. Thanks!
