Ok, I found a PRE BAN Bushmaster M17 at a local gun shop for $550, and would love to take the little fellow home. But having shelled out for an M1, SKS-D, and FA-91, I can't just go frivolously buying another rifle. So I need to learn a few things about it so I'm sure I really want the thing. 1.) How reliable are they? Did they ever jam? How do they shoot Wolf, S&B, and SS109? What about reloads? 2.) How easy are they to strip, dissassemble, and clean to the best darn polish possible? 3.) How does it feel shooting (realizing that a pre-ban with flash hider will be a little different.) 4.) How does the performance of the pre-bans differ from post bans? 5.) How accurate is it in MOA with Wolf, S&B, SS109, and various match ammo? 6.) It seemed very durable to me, but is it really? 7.) I've heard of trigger discomfort that can be fixed, but how bad is it to begin with, and does it at all affect safety? 8.) I was very surprised that part of the carry handle is the charging handle, and that the rest is plastic. Do scopes keep their zero? Thanks to all who respond.
