    This is essentially a stock Bushmaster XM15-E2S.

    That’s right, its a Texas star laser etched into the lower. Motherfuckin :cool::coold:

    instead of XM15-E2S (which it is) they call it the Texas M4. its what Texas state troopers are issued.

    in before the obama ban

    also, if you're not from texas, I may not give a shit what you say..:p

    its not the greatest, true. but for recreational shooting and home defense, it does the job just fine. shoots better than I do in fact.

    and by that I mean I got 1.5 inch 5 shot groups at 200 meters from the standing position using wolf ammo ;)

    but seriously it was only slightly more expensive than a bargain basement AR, and I reckon its a bit more than slightly better.

    I may add a eotech in the future, but I think I'm going to get good with the irons first

    indeed, the happy switch isn't there. fuck I guess if someone here happens to have an NFA bushmaster with one I'll have to change the damn thread title

    yes, this was during a fairly severe thunderstorm as well.

    i guess the wink smilie didn't convey my attempt at humor as much as I thought it would

    born and bred in Texas. my job has taken me many places and now I'm living in the great state of Virginia, working in the cesspool of DC.

    but this carbine makes it seem like I never left. hell, my neighbor kind of looks like joe horn:eek3d:

    I saw those in one of the police equipment order catalogs. Forgot which one. I was under the assumption you had to be LEO to get one. Otherwise, I would have jumped at the chance. Yes, I am from Texas.

    nope, anyone can get one. I think I would have just bought the texas etched stripped lower though, if they offered it. but I'm happy with this as an all around plinker.

    not really, it'll be a while before put the red dot on it. have a couple more gun projects in the works:noes:


    wat



    word. have a 500 round can of UMC, I think. haven't even shot the 80 or so rounds of wolf I have. thats mostly for my noob friends if and when they shoot it.

    yes I know one can be put together for less. for this gun I don't care though. as I said before not too much more than one of those bargain basement guns. plus I got a military discount. military discounts ftmfw

    so eventually I'm going to get a dedicated .22 upper to use with this lower. and eventually after that I'm going to build a separate dedicated .22 rifle around that upper. it want it to be badass.

    so who sells a complete .22 upper these days? not looking to get a ciener conversion kit. unless someone can convince me I should.
