What is "CHiP" ?? When you say "based on condition", I am assuming USED??

Personally my worst AR for reliability was an XM15 Bushmaster I had.
I should have dumped it during the Sandy Hook panic.

With that being said, the one you are looking at is $877 new @ impact guns.
My Gander Mtn was only 5% off gun dept after 3 weeks of "liquidation"

For $500 you could probably assemble a new Dissipator using parts from PSA and an Anderson lower. I'm pretty sure PSA carries complete Dissipator upper assemblies.

Mine has been very reliable. I built a Patrolmans Carbine for about $500 after Sandy Hook when prices were through the roof. I put over 1K rounds through it without a single issue before I even cleaned it. It got so dirty it was blowing huge clouds of carbon out of the barrel after each round LOL. Took me two hours to scrape all the carbon off when I did finally clean it up. Getting ready to replace the 1/9" twist barrel with a 1/7".

Can't really knock Bushmaster. Once you put a quality BCG in them they are pretty good for the price. I have one of the older XM15-E2S Commandos that I carry around when I'm not carrying an AK. I think I've had it about 12 years or so now. Shot an armadillo with it last week. Haven't cleaned it in a long time. No issues yet. I just wouldn't care for the two foot long hand guards on the Dissipator model though.
I'd say go for it. Just like a LE trade in Glock.

I can't see paying that for a used Bushmaster, when a new colt 6920 is going for 647$

Raising this up from the dead.

Was at G mountain yesterday to kill some time. Since they are now GOOBiz I thought I'd check the supposed sales. They had 4 Bushy Dissy's with the Govt rollmark and from $389-$440. They are used no doubt on the outside. Sales guy told me to check back in two weeks as they will probably be lower. Tempted at that price.

A good salesman would have saved you the trip and lowered it right then and there.

Couldn't agree more. I asked if it was the best they could do. Typical corporate counter guy......."you should just buy a new bushmaster with the mail in factory rebate". Wasn't going to go into old vs new bushmaster.

I think you run the risk of someone else getting the deal if you wait to long...I just picked up two Bushmaster Dissy's....one with roll mark and a roll marked mag for 660.00 delivered....It was in impeccable shape...does not look like it was shot at all. Also picked up another which I am waiting to be delivered....used but in very good condition. This one was 440 delivered. I was willing to pay more on both, but the bidding stopped. These are not an easy find...I was looking for 7 months before both of these came up on GB. Still looking to get a Colt branded Dissy....

I have several Bushmaster Dissipators before they sold out and made the Windham Weaponry comeback. Old school Bushmasters are GTG in my book. So buy buy buy.....

My local Gander is closed now but I asked the guy about price and he said they were not allowed to work on the price due to the closing sales.

I need to check out the one around me and see how much is still available. Last I checked there was a lot of soft goods. No much in terms of rifles and such....Pretty much the great stuff was gone.

The local GM had a few a couple of weeks ago, but I think they were over $1000.
Maybe I need to check back.

You should....a guy sold one on Armslist for 1200.00 bucks. I called him on it but was too late.

I did pick up a rare Colt...one of 297 made. Colt 6320...paid for it too. Hope to have by Friday.

The one you link to is a Colt which would demand a higher price than the Bushmasters that were at Gander. I called today and they are gone. Shoulda just put one on the CC at $400 but oh well. Like a need another AR.

I should have clarified it was A Colt Dissy...I did buy a BM Dissy with restricted rol mark for 600 and change...it was in pristine condition.
