    1st review

    For the price has proven to be a reliable and dependable carbine for everyday Law Enforcement and Tactical Operations. Add an Holographic Sight and external light source for accuracy and night ops.

    I agree! This weapon is fantastic and served its purpose well over in Iraq. It is also extremely lightweight compared to the M16.

    I used to have one of these wonderful rifles (AR15 A3 M4), and I miss it tremendously. The only problem I ever had was that the receiver pivot pin seemed to fit loose and slide around on occasion.

    I love this weapon, its lightweight, easy to use, extremely accurate and its easy for a woman to use as well. NOT too mention the thrill of shooting it. My husband and I use this one for target practice well more me than him those poor bunnies... But over all we never have had a problem with it.

    This is another tool that every patrol Officer needs to have in his "tool box". With it's light weight, and versatility, it can be used for building searches, or just handeling a perimeter possession. It is the ace in the hole when the chips are down. The gun system is user friendly and easy to handel, while remaining accurate in the harshest environments with minimal malfunctions (most due to the ammunition being used).

    This is the closest we have to the M-4 we use in the Air Force. Ours has a rail system on it for attachments, mine has a pistol grip and all in the Air Force have an optic that allows for laser aiming. I love this weapon, lighter easier to shoot than the M-16, never shot expert on the M-16, first time on the M-4 shot expert and have ever since.

    Excellent weapon, used in all of our patrol cars, easy to operate. We use Eo-tech scopes on ours, but I would have chosen another optic. Fired the gun several times and in all kinds of weather, never a problem. This includes the harsh Buffalo winters

    My first and everlasting experience with the M-4 was when it was issued to me at the Al-Sadeer Hotel in Baghdad, Iraq.

    Give me any handgun, knife or blunt-type instrument and away we'll go. The phrase 'bringing a knife to a gun fight' ,being in Iraq, comes to mind after I wrote and reread that last sentence.

    We then went to the 'firing range' which looked like any abandoned concrete lot in this war-torn savaged country. Heck, we could have just driven through Sadr City [as moving targets] and would have gained a great measurability of experience. My brothers whom have been there will agree.

    The M-4 works, it really works, in heat, sand, [and sand storms] rain and yes even in the snow country up northeast in the Kurdish Region.

    I'm, with pride and workable knowledge, will add the M-4 to my list.

    Local police department here bought these for Tactical Unit, and apparently had all kinds of issues during full-automatic operation. Reportedly the product support was good, but I guess the issues darkened a cloud over these rifles because word has it they are buying Rock River for general patrol issue. I still think Bushmaster is a fine product and would be near the top of my list (especially since I won't be buying one in full auto)

PERSONALLY, I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE MILITARY GO BACK TO THE 7.62 ROUND AND LEAVE THE 223/5.56 TO THE GROUNDHOG HUNTERS. THE KINDER / GENTLER NATO 9MM /5.56MM BS CONTINUES TO GET PEOPLE KILLED ALL THE TIME. OUR PEOPLE! AAAH! DONT GET ME STARTED!!!

    Liked the Colt version that I carried at work so much that I went out and bought this one for a personal weapon. So versatile with all of the optional toys that you can put on to it. I would highly suggest skipping the low cost red dots, and go straight to the eotech. Although they run $400, you won't waste the $300 in finding out you don't like any other ones.

    I have had my A3 M4 rifle for 3 years and have put over 800 rounds through it with no problem. Its very easy to clean and maintain. The only thing I wished I would have done different is got a flash hider instead of the compresser on the end of the barrel. If you have to fire it without ear plugs you cant hear out of your left ear and you get a severe headache due to the precussion.

Toss on a scope and you can snipe, toss on a gangster grip and you can look cool while you kick in doors. I slapped a 100 round Beta mag into mine and I have an urban suppression weapon!...not that I think I would ever need it, but it sure goes a long way to make friends at the range.

I'll fix 'em! No I don't really have the suppresor, wifey wouldn't let me have a suppresor (unless I get one for her baby nine, and I'm not doing that, she might use it on me!) but I do have the M4.

    The Bushmaster Carbon 15 Model 4 Carbine is a unique hybrid of traditional AR 15 design and space-age Carbon 15 materials. The Upper and Lower Receivers of the C15M4 Type are molded of Carbon 15 composite which offers a weight savings of 3/4 of a pound compared to the standard forged aluminum receivers. In addition, these molded receivers are completely impervious to moisture, rust or corrosion and offer an increase in strength over aluminum. The Carbon 15 material is the same through-out, so there is no surface finish to wear off or require maintenance.

    All functional controls operate like the AR15 type rifle and the C15M4 Type will accept standard AR15 parts. A dual aperture rear sight offers windage adjustment, and the AR15 type standard front sight is elevation adjustable. A wide variety of scopes, red dot or holographic sights, or night vision equipment may be mounted on the Upper Receiver’s Picatinny rail.

    The 14.5" barrel – chambered for the 5.56mm, but will also accept the nearly identical .223 Remington as well. It is chrome lined in both bore and chamber for long wear, and ease of maintenance. For control of muzzle rise, this carbine includes a permanently installed “Izzy” Compensator. A mil. spec. manganese phosphate outer coating insures protection of the barrel and all critical steel parts of the weapon, against corrosion and rust.

    A Telestock offers light weight, carrying ease and quick handling. The telestock, pistol grip and two piece handguards are all molded of strong black thermoset composite material. The handguards are internally shielded against barrel heat build-up. The Bushmaster Carbon 15 Model 4 comes with a 30 round magazine, safety and operational manual, and sling.

    There are many more optional equipment for the Bushmaster M-4 carbine, though not for civilian applications. It has great accuracy for about 400 meters and is an excellent close order or entry weapon.

    I have shot many M-4s in my time and I know alot of people are really into Rock River rifles right now but my first AR-15 I owned is a Bushmaster and I have held out for the rifle of my dreams. I now own a Bushmaster modular carbine and I love it. I have had zero count them zero issues except it doesnt cook dinner, It doesnt clean itself and bullets are really f*****g expensive right now. I love it. I would have traded my wife for one of these.

    This is the patrol rifle I use in civilian law enforcement...have spent quite a bit brining it up as close as I legally can to the military version I use when deployed with the Guard.
    Outstanding carbine, for outstanding prices. Ive had a rail put on it, a harris bipod, and a Trijicon ACOG optic. Can use it to clear structures or as a designatied marksman weapon.

    I dont know if its my Bushmaster of not, but I havent had this many problems with my rifle. First off the sights were aligned all the way to the left. I gave it back to the armory and they determined the barrel was slightly bent. so, got a new barrel. Second off no matter how much I clean or oil this gun it seens to jam every time I take it out to the range, The magazines i was supplied with also have issues feeding the weaon.

    Besides all the negatives, the weapon is accurate, light weight, small, and smooth to fire.

    I have this version. Only problem I had was after the first couple of hundred rounds, the hex-head bolts on the top of the carrier key came loose. Bushmaster doesn't stamp them down as well as other brands. Caused a large amounts of single shots followed by jams. Very easy fix though. Other than this, very high quality. Have to burn off the coating with a few hundred rounds for it to smooth out too.

    The M-4 is a great weapon that I get to use on the job. It is very light weight and length isn't to bad either (especially with the adjustable buttstock). I usually carry a M68 on top and a peq 2 in the front. Overall this weapon is great for most needs in combat.
