Bushmaster
« on: June 16, 2020, 04:44:33 pm »

What is a fair price for one of those type of weapons these days. I looked at a used one this afternoon at a Flea Market that can shoot both the .223 and the 5.56. (Although for all I know they all can shoot either type of round). I know next to nothing about that type of gun and was curious. I know we have posters here that likely have such a rifle. So what's the scoop? TIA

Prior to covid I would say 700-800 New sounds about right for a Bushmaster. But I could be way off.

A 5.56 can shoot either 5.56 or .223. A .233 can only shoot .233. Right now a fair price is around 750-1000 for a Bushmaster. Check your PM's

I sent you a reply on the PM. The link has a word that is apparently an issue and has been censored. I can't bring it up to show the product.

FWIW the used Bushmaster I saw that that flea market was priced at $600. I am sure they would go down on the price though. I would hesitate to buy it either way myself though because I have no experience with such a weapon and wouldn't know what to look for to make certain it is in good shape or if there are hidden issues with it. Such as is there a spring within the firing mechanism that is broken thus causing jamming of the bolt, or maybe other issues?

Also, I am not sure I really need it to start with. I already have various pistols and rifles/shotguns around the house that can, and WILL, be used for self defense if it comes down to that. Not sure the Bushmaster is a necessity at this point.

A shotgun is far and away a better home defense weapon.
