They have a bad reputation for a reason, much like Taurus. If you have one that runs, great.
I understand there is more to it than looks...hence blindfolded you couldn't tell what you were shooting and everything would be based off feel. As far as the bad reputation, everyone I know that has a bushmaster has never had problems with theirs...the reputation is based on nothing, and only repeated by uneducated AR snobs...
DPMS, same thing...in fact we use full auto DPMS at work and those have countless amounts of rounds through them and they still work fine...so again, where does this rep come from?
