In continuation of the previous posts about my trip to the Calverton range I would like to present to everyone the Bushmaster M17S Bullpup. The rifle is my buddies. He bought it years ago and tricked it out with a few accessories. At the time he bought it I was doubting the quality of the firearm because it didn’t look like anything I had seen before. I thought it looked a bit spartan. I was proved wrong by my friends choice. This rifle will not be winning any beauty contests but it will definitely hit anything you are shooting at it with great precision. The rifle shoots really well. I was making head shots on a 100 yard target 40% of the time and the torso at a 100 yards almost a 100% of the time.
The only two downsides for me were the long trigger pull and the weight. The trigger has some travel before it engages. It’s easy to get accustomed to and it is only a downside because I am comparing it to my Stag Arms Model 2. The rifle with all of my friends goodies on it is over 10 lbs. A couple more lbs and your holding a M249 SAW. The rifle is not made any more so if you like what you see you may be out of luck unless you get it used at a gun show. Here are a bunch of pics of my friends rifle and two targets at a 100 yards.
