    Not AS sucky as the older ones, but still a really really crappy trigger.

    Yes, buy a gun that is rare, doesn't have much if any parts available, and is heavier than hell for what it is.

    If you go bullpup, you pretty much go with an AUG or you go with nothing.

    i agree...CRAP! ive had plenty of opportunities to shoot various models of bull pup rifles. the ejection port is on the other side of the stock from your mouth. every round that is fired you breathe noctious fumes even if you dont want to. i felt a little sick and light headed after some trigger time. IMHO you are better to spend your money elsewhere!

    you can get parts for the bushmaster m-17 from bushmaster themselves. also you can get it customized into a nice tactical carbine and loose about 2 and half pounds. go to kurtscustom dot com and see for yourself.. CDNN is selling brand new ones for $800.00. if you are interested they're number is 18005889500. and they are based in texas. p.s. ive never heard of an unreliable m-17 or one that didnt show good accuracy. call em soon or they will all be gone.

    I know where to get them, but they are discontinued, and not a popular gun. Whatever parts available will only last so long. Its an orphan gun. For 800 bucks I can think of many better guns out there.
