If you are looking at this rifle on Walmart's site, you may have already know that Bushmaster is once of the best M-16/M4 rifles on the market and have been for many years. There will be alot of people that say this rifle was built for Walmart to "Wlamart Specs," but I can assure you that is just a rumor started by people that don't like Walmart because they cannot or will not offer you the same price.
I bought this rifle and an ammo can of 240 Federal 5.56mm rounds for under $1200. This site won't give you a couple of details that I would like to share...
1- This rifle, like all Bushmasters, is designed to shoot 5.56 and .223 ammo and the rifle is stamped to reflect it.
2- This is the same Bushmaster Model XM15-E2S #a.k.a. Patrolman# that everyone else sells, but at $100-$300 less.
It is made in America by Americans, so I do not have a problem with buying this rifle from Walmart for less.
Make your decision because I already made mine.
- So, I was in Wal-Mart to buy ammo and walked by the gun display, when...
- I spied an AR in the case
- Immediately, a smile appeared on my face and I knew that things were looking up for the store. I asked the clerk to take it out for inspection.
- Holding it in my hands, I knew I had to take it home. How does she shoot?
- Performance shooter
- Positively the best rifle I've purchased from Wal-Mart. Kudos for stocking it!
My gun i recently bought at my local wal-mart is one of the best i have ever owned. I have put my own optics on top of this rifle and went to the local rifle range. I was surprised at the results i got from this rifle. I was able to shoot bullets holes on bullet hole one after another with this rifle. I talked to the manufacture before i bought this rifle and it has chrome lined chamber and bore that is a must i look for in a rifle of this type. I have even had a very close friend who is in my mind a expert with this type of rifle . He has took the time to Inspect this rifle very close in his opinion it is a high quality rifle [ in his words it will last me a life time a very well built gun ] . In my own mind no one would go wrong if they buy this rifle. Thank you for taking the time to read this post i hope it helped. Mike1022oneshot
This is an excellant entry level AR and offers a good value. As with all firearms, I recommend cleaning it before the first use. Use good ammunition, for at least the first mag or 2, to break in the AR; the American Eagle .223 is a good choice or if your Walmart has it the xm855 in the green ammo can. Afterwards use what you want, Tula Ammo is less expensive for shooting paper.
i just purchased this item !!! and it has passed all expectations by far !!! I took it out to the range and thought id have to do a lil sight adjustment to put it on target ??? but it was dead on, right on target !!! after a 100 rounds i wanted to shoot all day !!! love this gun !!! and i was surprized it came with a plastic case . like the adjustable stock and so did my friends !! they all want one now !!!!
This Bushmaster M4 can shoot both 5.56 NATO and .223 ammunition, it is chambered for 5.56 so it is safe to use .223 as well. It is quite accurate out of the hard plastic carry case that it comes in. It also comes with a gun strap, 30 round metal magazine, and an owners guide that takes you step by step through the cleaning process, to keep your rifle operating at peak performance.
If you are in the market for this type of rifle, you won't find one for less anywhere, unless it's at another Walmart. Other stores generally charge 200 to 300 dollars more than Walmart does. There are tons of add ons you can get for this M4 as well, bi-pods, picatinny rail, foregrips, magpul magazines, optics for the rail beneath the removable carry handle, lights, etc.
No regrets with this purchase, I took it to the range and put 200 plus rounds through it and it is a lot of fun to shoot and quite accurate even with iron sights. Would highly recommend this to anyone.
I've owned this rifle for several years. And it's proven to be a reliable firearm. I really trust Bushmaster Firearms.
I bought this rifle at my local Wal-Mart and love it. A lot of people talk trash about BM about how they don't come with properly staked gas keys or come with a black crano ring. I purchased the rifle after inspecting it and when I inspected it I noticed it did come with staking on the gas keys actually very good staking as good as colts staking matter of fact. It comes with a black crano ring as well. It has m4 feedramps and a carbine buffer.
It doesn't however have castle nut staking but you can do that yourself at home in under 5 minutes with a hammer and a punch or screw driver. It doesn't have an F marked front sight post but that can be fixed for 5 dollars or so.
I would recommend this rifle to anyone.
The Bushmaster M4A3 is a fantastic rifle to either add to a collection or for a first rifle, very easy to shoot and accurate. My fivteen year old daughter can shoot this rifle with very accurate results and loves to go out shooting it with dad, you will not be disapointed with it!
I use Federal .223 ammo with brass casings and have never had a problem with it, I have had people tell me that the cheaper ammo with steele casings has jammed on them but I don't buy cheap ammo just to avoid any problems.
I have been looking at this Bushmaster for the past month at my local Walmart and finally decided to buy it. Compared to any other place, Walmart had the lowest price for this model. I've taken it to the range and have put 100 rounds through it with out any problems, not that there should be with brand new rifle. I was looking at the S & W AR15, but decided to go with Bushmaster. I've looked it over, in and out and it all looks great! I bought this mostly for target practice and home defense. It takes me back to my Army days, even though we used the A2's back then. This is so much better though, now I just need to get a Slide Fire and some good optics and I'm ready to GO!!!!!!
i bought this rifle as a christmas gift to myself last year and i just want to confirm the other comments posted, its a great rifle. great price. fun to shoot. take the time to get familiar with it (disassembly, maintenance, etc.). invest in a decent rail system and customize it as you see fit. iraq or the carolinas its a decent ifle
I have never owned or fired one of these rifles until a few weeks ago when I bought it. I dont know the diffirence between this AR-15 or other AR's but this gun was worth every penny "$872". I brought it home, ran a cleaning rod through it and put on a little oil, loaded the 30rd Mag and started pulling the trigger. Although I only bought 200rds, I had a awsome time shooting cans with my son. Taking the gun apart was as easy as loading the mag too. Had the gun cleaned and oiled in less then 10 min. For any body looking for a great AR-15 rifle and at this more then fair price, this is your gun. Get one while you can!! Plus alot of ammo, your going to need it!
First this is an Amazing Modern Sports Rifle. It has preformed every task that i have brought to it. Once you get this rifle to a range and put rounds on paper you can see why so many people also love this rifle. I was so glad that the rumors about walmart firearms being (sub-par) to be false.
I purchased this rifle and it was a great buy. I've owned rifles before and did research on .223s before purchasing this one. The rifle is exactly what I wanted. GREAT BUY!!!!!
My answer for the Larue junk rifle. This piece is a work of art compared to the Colt. The Colt is made for leftys. And we all know most of us are right handed. Get one today.......while you still can.
I am a Gun dealer and I have owned a Bushmaster in the past and they perform well. However most people do not know that Bushmaster is not really Bushmaster anymore.My personal favorite for AR-15s are the Windham Weaponry rifles.These(Windham folks) are the original Bushmaster people that are known for producing top quality guns at great prices.Read the Windham story online and you will understand.I own a Windham M-4 style and it is a beautiful rifle that shoots extremely well .
Decent gun, it isn't a Larue though so it will probably break when I get to shoot it. Maleante is a rooster holster.
