    I just finished this one this evening.

    All PSA except for the RRA (unmarked) rear sight rail. I have no more than $350 in this rifle. It is a Freedom 16” mid length; I have a couple of other Freedoms (a 16” and a 10.5”) that are good shooters so I suspect this one will be as well.

    I remember back in December 2012 I paid almost $350 for a BCG right after the Newtown shooting.

    That is pretty cheap for a complete AR-15 and it doesn't look bad either. I have seen where Bushmaster prices were getting down to the Low $600.00 range and than learned the Bushmaster other old is no longer and the old stuff is better.

    I recently took a Part mix master gun in trade and it looks like I am gonna to come up with a game plan to make it a working gun.

    Hey, back then we didn’t know if we were going to continue to possess ARs much less but parts.

    KS how do you like that rear sight rail? I took a Ruger AR556 in as part of a trade and I'm debating leaving it as a lightweight carbine or turning it into a dedicated .22.

    awp I do like it. This one came on an RRA Tactical Entry model that I bought years ago that eventually ended up with a full float tube and a scope.

    I can’t say that there is any advantage to having the rail on it but I like the looks of it and the A2 style rear sight.

    Thanks! I have a low power variable I can mount (I need the magnification) but it's light and handy with just irons...

    That is what I just learned.....All my stuff is the old stuff when Bushmaster was the good stuff. I didn't have a clue until someone posted here needing a lower to make a repop.
