Bushmaster in recent times has kind of gone downhill in community perception over the years, but now I am going to be reviewing my own bushmaster AR-15 that I got a while back. It is not the best, but it is definitely far from the worst. Really its just got your standard spec AR-15 components that all come together to make a well performing rifle. Its definitely not competition ready, but if you want it to shoot, or its all that you can afford, it will definitely serve your needs. You can still get a good amount of reliability with it and if it shoots it, it works. And for the price point, you aren’t getting anything unreasonable. I would recommend this for people who are looking for a cost effective AR-15.
