    Bushmaster Or Stag Arms?

    I know both manufacturers are great but Sometimes you really do get what you pay for. So my question is, should i get a more expensive bushmaster m4 (average cost of all their guns) or a cheaper stag arms m4 (also based on average cost)???

    Don't buy either before you do alot more research on this site. If you have yet to drop the money, go to the technical discussion session in this forum and research "the chart" and threads related to Bushmaster, Stag, RRA, Etc. and then give strong consideration to BCM/Colt/Noveske.

    The only thing you are right about in your train of thought is you do get what you pay for.

    I think you better do your research. Both manufacturers are sub par at best. There are 1,548,936 threads on this site discussing this same exact topic, bro. Just type "bushmaster", "stag", "dpms", etc. in the search bar and read away. You can get a bcm, dd, or LMT for little to nothing more then the shrubmastet or stag. I suggest that you do a search on those brands. Check out "the chart" as it is an invaluable resource. Good luck. Ask questions, but search first.

    I'd go Stag over Bushmaster. Stag makes a good rifle, but BCM or Spike's may be more quality rifle for the money.

    and "The Chart"

    Save your pennies and get something to the left side of the chart.

    The temptation to "buy now, play now" will be great, but having that warm fuzzy feeling knowing you have top notch kit will last longer.

    Niether. Unless you are just going to use it specifically for a rnage/plinking gun. If it has any chanc of being a self defense or SHTF rifle, get something worth using to save your life like a Daniel Defense, LMT, Noveske, BCM, Colt, KAC.

    Like others said do your research and you will find the rifle that is right for you.

    If you decide on foregoing a quality rifle and choose between the two you listed (The two you listed are bottom of the barrel rifles; not quality in any sense of the word); I would go with stag over BM; but then again I would never purchase either...

    When I read the Title, I thought someone was being sarcastic.

    Echo'ing those before me - do your research.

    The Chart in "The Chart" is good but just looking at that spreadsheet will just direct you to a "good gun" but you will not really know why it's a "good gun". Read the Definitions above the spreadsheet to learn about AR's, read the Thread and then do further research as to what makes one AR better than the other.

    Doing all of this will save you a whole lot of buyer's remorse later.

    THCDDM4 is completly right. They are both terrible compared to what is available with just a few dollars more.
    BCM upper 375+25Charging Handle+140 BCG=540 for a supurb upper. 330 for an LMT complete lower. Whole rifle for 870! You can even fin LMT lowers for 299.00 if you look around.

    Would you purchase a brand new flatscreen, if you new that is was going to fail after 400 hrs of use?

    At least DPMS was not in that list, it is the Hesse and Century Arms of the AR world.

    This is great advise right here. Once you learn how an AR is suppose to be built you will see how much Shrubmasters and the others cut corners.

    Unless you are getting either gun for $700 or below, pass on both and get something better for just a little more coin.

    BCM or DD would be my first two choice.

    I know you can get into a BCM (buying the upper and lower seperate) for about $834 FYI.

    Paul does the same deal, but you have to go with Grant for Paul's lowers

    Really, all you need is $200.00 more than the $700.00 sh*tmasters and you can have a excellent rifle for competition, range, etc. Just wait 2 more weeks until next pay check. It will be worth it, because after a month of shooting. You'll always wonder when your rifle is going to die, and if you just would have waited and saved. On a side note the Georgian''s were armed with Bushys and lost to the Russian's lol. There's a thread about it here somewhere. lol.

    Ahh, don't show him that, CMMG uses chromemoly! That's the makeup of the cheap date- wipe it off with Slip2000 and blahh scary! It's like she's a monster.
    If he wants to bottom feed with a little better cheap date CDDN has S&W M&P for 699.00 but with that 1/9 option. It's like the backup date your friend has for you for the prom.
