NO RESERVE AUCTION for a Beautiful Bushmaster Predator with exactly 63 rounds fired since new. Original plastic case, 1 10 round and two 30 round magazines included. Harris Bipod and Tactical operating latch installed for scope use.
This is an awesome gun and will literally shoot one hole groups at 100 yards using Hornady 75GR TAP or Privi- Partisan 69GR Match ammo.
I have fired exactly two boxes of the Hornady TAP and one box of the Privi-Partisan ammo through the gun.
I am missing three rounds out of my last box of Privi so I suspect it went through the Bushmaster, so in the interest of full disclosure the round count is exactly "63".
The barrel was properly broken in by the firing one shot, cleaning, two shots cleaning, three shots cleaning method.
The trigger pull is "Match Military", a slight take-up and then like breaking a glass rod. It is without a doubt the finest AR trigger I have ever pressed, no creep or drag, simply a medium-light very clean break after initial take-up.
This would make a fine Varmit or Sniper/Counter-Sniper rifle with a quality scope installed. The Harris bi-pod makes prone shooting rock solid and adds heft to the fore end. It balances well.
There are several reviews of the Predator online so I wont belabor the issue except to say it is the nicest and most accurate full sized AR I have ever fired.
I would put it against any Colt HBAR match rifle ever made, I know, I have one and but for the collectible nature of the "Colt" name it would be here instead.
I am so confident you will be impressed with the rifle that I will offer a 10 day money back guarantee.
You will however need to mount reliable optics and shoot 69-75GR match ammo to get the most out of the gun.
From reading and range advice from another Predator owner , some have had success with 55GR loadings by careful hand loading, I never bothered.
A friend went through several 55gr factory loads and could not find one that would group less than 1.5" at 100 yards out of his gun (He uses his Predator in 3 gun matches) and saved me much expense and trouble by recommending the Privi-Partisan 69GR BTHP match ammo or the Hornady 75GR TAP loads. Use this very high quality "factory ammo" and its one ragged hole at 100 yards even through these 50 year old eyes.
I give you my advice because I want you to be as happy and surprised by the guns handling and capabilities as I was.
Make no mistake, this is a top quality gun, save the 55GR ball for shooting dirt clods out of your M4gery, feed this Bushmaster the right ammo and prepare to be amazed.
Super reasonable $25.00 UPS shipping, I am losing money at this price for a long gun in its case.
UPS 3 Day to FFL Holder only.
Sorry to the individuals who live in AR restricted states, I will
