The title was misleading, I know. I just picked up a wait for it... Bushmaster Carbon 15!!!! The gun I've never wanted. I traded an old Ruger model 77 for it. The 25-06 is now gone. Plans for the bushy? To get sold. Unfortunately the model 77 is a tricky sell even at a 450 OBO price point. I traded it off for an easy to sell tupperAR.

Initial impressions... Well it is light. Ummm it's camo... Hmmm it's light.
In all seriousness, not terrible. The camo finish is decent, it looks factory (it might be?). The Bushnell sight sucks, but I feel it will help it sell easier. I had a spare ergo grip in fde which went with the finish pretty good. I was a bit surprised it had a forward assist, but it does. I think I did okay, the rifle would make a fantastic coyote gun, it's nice and light.
It has no front sight, and I'd either have to attach a quad rail, or cut the sling stud and put on an A2.

I would have probably done the trade also. For me I wouldn't really care for the camo on it since I'm not a hunter but I would still rather have the carbon 15. If you sell I wish you luck on getting what you want for it.

Cheap truck gun... put a F post on it and throw a mid priced ($150-300) red dot on it...
I do have an extra sparc laying around, but I have a designated gun for each truck already. And the lady doesn't want a long gun in her car. So really it just doesn't fill any of my needs.

I totally agree with iron mike.....throw a Vortex Sparc or other 100-150 dollar red dot on it toss it and a small bag with loaded P-mags in the truck under the seat. Great pickup truck gun.

that $450 AR you have is actually an $800 TACTICAL ASSAULT rifle during the next scare.

School shooting in Washington today. Anti 2A people are already beating their drums again. I was thinking I would love to have 25-06 but I see that you have done the right thing.

In all fairness I still have a 25-06, just not the old Ruger. I have my truck gun taken care of. I just can't justify keeping another AR. The lady says "I have too many already" and I'm in the middle of a 458 build (more on that later/don't tell her). So really for me it's a paper weight. It serves me no purpose that I can think of.

But I suppose under the philosophy 2 is 1 and 1 is none I suppose it could be a back up to the pistol and rifle I already keep in there :p
