I think Bushmaster is on to a real winner with their new AR-10 style carbine. Priced at just $1395 it is a fantastic entry-level rifle.
It features a A3-style receiver and premium 16″ heavy profile chrome lined barrel, mid length gas system, A2-style flashhider, heavy oval hand guards
Like its 5.56mm ORC cousin, it does not ship with iron sights, and is designed for use with optics (scope, hologram, etc.) although iron sights can easily be added to the rear A3-style picatinny rail and Bushmaster’s BMAS Front Flip-up Sight for V Match Rifles can be mounted on the milled gas block. It ships with two 1/2″ risers which can be used to raise up a scope if needed.
|Magazine Capacity||20 Rounds|
|Overall Length||33.25″ – 37.25″|
|Weight w/o magazine||7.75 lbs.|

I really want one of these!
