Brand new here, and in the market for my first AR. Have read pretty much all the latest posts here and on AR15.com, but one topic I haven't seen discussed yet is Bushmaster's new Carbon 15 line, and how it rates compared to standard aluminum rifles and if it actually lives up to the marketing hype.
Right now, my choices are between the BM and S&W (leaning towards the S&W because my history with them has been that S&W has tight quality control standards).
Can anyone comment on the Carbon 15 rifles, and compare / contrast them with S&W rifle, and which one you think is a better buy for the $$$? Thank you in advance, L.
