It's here! It's here! Christmas comes early to the Minuteman house!! I just got home from a 2 week hitch in Texas and had my new BA 50 waiting for me at the gun shop. Man what a chunk of metal. We put it on a set of scales that they had and it wieghs in at 46 lbs with empty mag. I bought the ATN scope for it too. I found one that a guy had ordered, then fell on hard times and had to sell the rifle before he had a chance to mount the scope. The more money a man makes the bigger his toys get. But I always look for bargains. I got the rifle, new in the box for $4300. They list for 5K on Bushmasters website. But they are back ordered and you'll wait for months. The only ones I have found at gun stores and online run over $5500. The scope lists for $1080, I got it for $800. So I have less in the whole package than what you can buy just the rifle for. I'm happy with that. Relieves a little bit of the guilt over spending so much on myself. Kinda like the wife coming home after a $1000 shopping spree and telling me how much money she saved because everything was on sale! I'll be sighting it in this weekend. Range report coming.
