10 year old shoots bushmaster AR-15

10 year old kid shoots AR-15 bushmaster.


Old Gamer 56 asked How large of a non-detachable magazine can a California legal rifle, with the “evil” features, have?

The “evil” features being the pistol grip, flash suppressor, etc. And how easily are those legal magazines, that need a tool to detach, detached.
(I’m a law biding citizen, wish I could just buy the damned rifle from Remington like you can in most states.)
What is the closet thing to an assault type rifle that you can buy, ready made and legally, in California?
Thank you people.

And got the following answer:

Short answer is any centerfire rifle is limited to 10 round capacity magazines if the rifle was purchased after the original AWB, regardless if it’s featureless, has attached magazines etc.

Some Cali-legal semi auto rifles with detachable magazines:
Springfield Armory Inc’s M1a, Ruger’s Mini-14, Ruger’s Mini-30, Kel-Tec’s SU-16, M1 carbine. Probably any of these choices are going to be the least hassle to buy without getting into a legal gray area.

Some Cali-legal semi autos with non detachable magazines:
Various combloc SKS’s, M1 Garand, ( The chinese “D” or “M” model SKS are illegal in California, all other types are okay. )

Several companies make California legal rifles that already comply with all the state laws. Some of them are;

The AR rifle that Bushmaster sells as being California legal sucks, the only way to load it is the unlatch the receiver and tilt it forward to load the welded in magazine, there are much better rifles available that are a lot less trouble to reload.

Other than that, most rifles are going to fall into a legal gray area that you really need to be familiar with to know what makes it legal. You can get EBRs like AKs, Fals, ARs, Saigas, Gailis and more, but there’s certain laws that must be complied with. Check this link for a guide on how to determine if what you want would be legal: is a great forum for California gun owners, you can find a lot of information there about what you’re looking for.

asked other AR gas piston rifles just as good as the hk mr556?

From what I’ve read the mr556 is the most reliable AR rifle on the market today and it’s because of it’s gas piston system. I was wondering if other firearm companies have already incorporated a gas piston system as reliable as HK’s. If so, which ones and are they cheaper than the mr556?

And got the following answer:

Here’s the deal

Eugene Stoner invented the AR-10, and then the AR-15 using direct gas impingement. There were some good features of this, but he decided that a pistol system was better.

He invented the AR-18 which was a pistol system. Very few countries were interested in buying this AR-18.

Many companies now make pistol system ARs and they tout their development with words like ‘We fixed the 40 year old problem with the AR-15!’ when honestly they are just repeating the same fix that the inventor of the AR-15 found himself, just a few years after he had invented the AR-15.

And of course just like the AR-15 is now being made by many many many people without having to pay any royalties or stuff like that, so to with guys making copies of the AR-18.

Most of these guns you see are total copies of the AR-18 in the middle and AR-15 on the front and back.

The following companies make slight derivatives of the AR-18 marketed as the newest thing and the perfect AR

PWS, ADC, LMT, LWRC, Stag, SIG, S&W, Ruger, Bushmaster, CMMG, HK,

Here is a really good one from LMT, superior to the HK

Also, you should read this to learn the truth about HK

here are some articles about the ar-18

Fin Mccool asked Has anyone here had any hands on experience with Daniel defense rifles and there quality?

Are they as good as Bushmaster or better?

And got the following answer:


I build match AR’s.

I purchased a Daniel Defense upper receiver and their 10.3″ barrel from a few months ago and built a NFA legal SBR on my S&W lower.

I have inserted a lot of barrels into M16/M4 and AR uppers – but this one went into the upper like a dream. I was quite pleasantly surprised at how nice the fit was – and I liked the finish on both the rifle and the receiver. And it shoots and functions exactly as expected – with very surprisingly good groups at 100 yards with a suppressor. I have not yet tried it out at 200 yards yet – this weekend, maybe.

Most AR barrels use a .920″ handguard cap or .720″ one – the old Colt’s and lightweight barrels use an unusual .625″. I did not have one handy – so I emailed Daniel Defense and asked where to get one since it was not shown on their web sight – their sales guy responded in less than 5 hours and sent me one for free.

This is probably the best customer support I have ever seen in an AR-15 manufacturer. On a scale of 1-10 I give Daniel Defense a solid 10.

Who now? asked Why did the Fort Hood shooter request the handgun with the highest capacity?
“Why do you care about what motivates a crazy person?”

You think a high capacity pistol motivated him to shoot up an Army base?

And got the following answer:

To kill the most people in the least time.

Jered Loughner murdered six people and injured thirteen more in 45 seconds. If he had been limited to a 5- or 10-round magazine, the whole dynamics of that day would have changed. He was, in fact, subdued when he had to change magazines.

Newtown shooter Adam Lanza got the Bushmaster AR-15 assault-type weapon he used to kill 20 children and six adults from his mother, who bought all her guns legally. Some of those innocent little kids had as many as 11 bullets in them. Had it been against the law for her to have the gun he used, he wouldn’t have gotten it from her. He wouldn’t have killed as many.


coltsfan44 asked How are your local stores doing on ar15’s?

There was two colts at my wal-mart and 10 bushmaster at outdoor wholesale. how are your stores doing?

And got the following answer:

What AR-15s?

Last time I went to my gun store, anything that looked like a tactical rifle was gone!

Disabled Vet. asked How do I legally sell my personal guns in WV?

I live in WV and own a AR-15 Bushmaster, Tactical .12 ga Mossburg & other weapons. How do I sell them legally? I have a military spinal cord injury and can no longer enjoy shooting sports and hunting. Most are long guns, but I also have a Colt 1991-A1 .45 semi. and a Rossi S & W J frame Stainless Steel .38. All are like new condition and well cared for. Do I need to have a dealer sell them and give up a commission?

And got the following answer:

I have sold some of my extra guns on

1. Register to use the site to sell your guns, it is free.

2. Search the site for guns like the ones you want to sell, that will give you an idea of what to ask for yours.

3. Take some good quality photos of your guns on a digital camera.

4. Posting the weapons for sale on the web site is a fairly straight forward process. Just a little tricky getting photos loaded, but not that hard.

5. Describe your weapons fairly.

6. Auctionarms will charge you a 2 1/2 percent sales commission on your sale, which is dirt cheap.

7. When you look at other guns for sale you will note that all of them ask the buyer to send a signed copy of a dealer’s FFL. You have to do the same.

8. Once someone has won your auction they will send you the purchase price (money order) PLUS shipping charges, and the FFL. Once you get the money and the FFL you then ship or mail the gun to the FFL dealer. That dealer, when he gets your gun will have the new owner fill out the necessary federal paperwork and transfer the gun to him.

Having a local dealer sell the guns on consignment for you will generally cost you a 10% commission.

Recently I sold off one of my Ruger .45 LC Vaquero revolvers. Once I got the buyer’s money order and FFL, I packaged the gun in one of those U.S. Post Office boxes that you can mail everything for $10 in, and mailed it to the FFL dealer.

And, Yes, that is prefectly legal. As long as the gun is going to a FFL dealer, you can mail a gun.

You won’t be able to mail a rifle, generally too long. I’d advise asking your local dealer to ship the gun for you. Some of them have deals worked out with shippers for better rates.

Thank you for your service. God bless you.

asked What’s the difference between the names AR-15, M16 and Bushmaster?

Do they refer to the same gun? Confused.

And got the following answer:

The AR-15 is one model of many different civilian weapons that developed into the military M-16.

Also Rightwing was wrong on several points.

Armalite did not invent the AR-15. Eugene Stoner did. The original model being the AR-10. AR also stands for American Rifle and has nothing to do with the Armalite name. The M in any military weapon system stands for Model not Military.

Bushmaster is the name of a weapons manufacturer. It is also the name of the 25mm chain gun in the Bradley and LAV series.

Sean asked How much would I get for a used Colt?

I am on the fence of buying a Colt 6920 AR. But I am a cheapo and 1300 is a lot of monies for a gun. I want the colt because it will be easy to resell and I think it will hold its value pretty good. If I buy a Colt 6920 for $1300 MSRP what should I expect to get back if it is in great condition?

And got the following answer:

This in not the model you want to buy for an investment. No way – no how.

I build match AR’s. Been shooting and using them since the early 70’s.

You want an investment? Go buy a $557 Bushmaster carbine at Sportsman’s Warehouse. This will give you a fully working rifle for little money. A few years from now – you should be able to sell it for $800 maybe – especially if it is new, unfired, in the box with all documents.

When you pay $1300 for a Colt, or $1200 for an Olympia Arms Service Match rifle or $1800 for the Olympia Arms Service Match with 2-stage trigger …….. you are buying a very nice rifle. People who know how to properly use them – they want a new rifle when the day comes to replace or upgrade. Nobody wants a used version of these nicer models – because you have no idea how it was taken care of. And if you can get someone who is willing to buy it for a decent price – it is usually a guy you meet at the shooting matches or a long time friend who knows it is coming from a good home.

For an AR you want to stash away for a rainy day – Best look for a flat top model that has the A2 removable handle with it, or, second choice is the standard A2 sight upper. Avoid the older, cheaper A1 Vietnam era sight.

You need to understand – all the major AR manufacturer’s have sold hundreds of thousands of stripped lowers in the past 10 years. Most were bought for $85 expecting an Obama Gun Ban would grandfather them – and then sell them for $500-$2500 each. Never happened. So now people are buying cheapo china parts for $200 and building AR’s on kitchen tables – then selling the gun off as a factory made Bushmaster, DPMS, Colt, Oly etc for $800-$1500 to unsuspecting people. You can spot one – because it is a new rifle with no box, manual, warranty card – these were never shipped with the stripped lowers. Heck – there are people who pay $75-$100 for an AR gun box just to decoy the bad gun. This practice has really depressed the used AR rifle market.

Good Luck
