    Hey everyone, i'm thinking about getting an Olympic Arms AR-15, good choice bad choice?

    i dont want to spend 1000$ on a bushmaster quite yet, and OA has a 560$ model do you think its that bad a gun? will it have conisistant groupings at 100 yards? can i get a 26" bbl for it?

    Or, do you think i should save up for a better AR-15?

    thanks alot, in advance.

    I can't really speak to the Oly's...but you can get a used Bushy for only a bit more than a new Oly. I have a heavy barrel Bushy Carbine and it is veeery sweet. I got it with a nice scope, lots of mags, and case for $750.

    where would i look to get a deal like that? a used bushy would be nicer then an OA i think. the OAs do come with lifetime warrenties, but BM might be more reliable i'm guessing?

    anyone else have any feedback?

    also check out www.ar15.com

    RRa makes a good lower. nuthin wrong with buying a lower (through an FFL) and then putting a bushy upper on it a month or two later. Me? i waited some 3 years.

    :D

    HEY, where's the :lol smiley???

    Bushy

    I got mine with a Simmons AETEC scope, nice soft sided case and 24 mags with it.
