I own an older bushmaster, I like it. I looked at a new one a few months ago, I had some issues with it.
1- the rear sight would not flip back to the smaller peep size.
2- the rear take down pin would not come out by hand, the LGS employee couldn't get it open.
3- there was too much wiggle between the upper and lower receiver for my taste.
For a rifle with a $1K price tag, I was not impressed, I bought a S&W instead.
