Got my new Bushmaster Pistol for Christmas
« on: December 27, 2005, 06:22:14 AM »

Hey guys got my new Bushmaster Pistol Sunday. It is a carbon 15 type 97s in .223.



I used to own the same pistol before the brady bill sunset. It shot great but gave me no place to hold it on the front. Brady guns had no forgrip and after a couple of shots, the barrel was untouchably hot. Pictured below. Anyway the pistol has very little recoil and is very accurate. It uses ar-15 magazines and has rails everywhere for any do dads I get the itch to mount.

Cool!  I don't know what I'd do with one if I had it but I'm sure I'd think of somehting. Would probably be pretty fun to shoot.  give us a range report after you've had the chance to wring it out.

I have yet to figure out just how to utilize it either. I fired several rounds last night because it was not wanting to go into battery after pulling and releasing the charging handle. My partner (at work) and our resident gun guru said that it could be tight from being new. After carefully looking it over he recommended that I shoot the poop out of it and break it in. I fired 10 shots rapid fire to see if it would function.................oh yeah it functioned perfectly. The bolt seems to be closing more than before I fired it. Anyway I need to shoot it thoroughly and will report on it asap. Plus if I ever figure out how I plan on using it I will post that also.

Threegun,


I've shot them and I DON'T like them.  They're are a bitch to shoot and stow. 

You might want to visit AR15.com.  They have a wider range of experience that I do a may provide you a less caustic opinion than mine.

I'm gonna find out at the range soon. I had the earlier version and it was difficult to shoot because it had no front handguard. This one does so lets see. As for stowing, wow.....difficult is an understatement. My initial plan is for this pistol to accompany me on my bass tournaments in a storage locker. I always have my Glock 23 however if things get a bit more out of control it is nice to have a backup with slightly more range, more power, and more cartridges. My ar-15's take up to much space or they would go instead.
