Got a new 223 yesterday - Bushmaster has one out with a Bushnell 1x red dot scope package. I sold a M4 Bushy to my Bro-in-law as I didn't really like the open sites - so got this puppy...
Run 1 20 round clip of Steel cased wolf ammo thru it - no function issues - accuracy a bit less than stellar -
Run 1 20 round clip of brass cased American Eagle thru it - no function issues - very accurate considering I was not letting gun cool.
The scope is OK, red dot a bit large with some blurryness but out to 100 yards it is decent.
Gun only weighs 5 lbs - very sweet to hold and shoot.
Comes with a cheap plastic case that Bushmaster didn't think ahead and allow for the mounted scope - pretty tight fit.
May throw a leupy fixed 4 power on it - that should make a nice improvement!
Trigger is pretty "gritty" may need a little honing or a new trigger may replace it later on.
Overall I would say its a B+/ A- for the price.
Only break in this gun is going to get is alot of rounds down range - no babying this puppy...
