My dear wife called me the other day at work and told me about an AR she found for sale. After checking on it it seemed like a great buy--so I bought it of course. Can't upset the wife right?

Any way it is a flattop Bushmaster Match V with 20" barrel and came with 9 mags(4 colt, 4 military subcontractor, 1 unmarked), 1000 rnds of Wolf ammo, web sling, Simmons whitetail expedition 3-9 mounted in Weaver see thru mounts, ammo can, and USGI mag carrier. The bore and mechanics are perfect. I will need to upgrade scope and mounts but overall for $950 I thought it was a good buy. I know the Wolf ammo is just blasting stuff for when tshtf but the Bushy runs well with 4 different types of factory ammo plus my coyote reloads-super!! The Wolf ammo is probably worth $200 or more and the mags, scope and other goodies are worth $150 or so I reckon. That brings the rifle price down to $600 or so which is a great buy-right!!

I shot it a few times with my coyote load and it was grouping around an inch or so-however the trigger is not conducive to firing tight groups. I will have to address the trigger but the rifle is certainly predator capable right now. However it was raining this am. I am catching AR fever-this is my second the first being a DPMS Sweet 16. Well I guess my very first was the Colt M16A1 that I carried for a living for awhile. Plateau Hunter
