    Bushmaster it is. Thanks to all for the replys. Ram Rod, thanks for the link on the extractor. I'll keep that in mind when I get mine.

    It is better to have your gun and not need it, than to need it and not have it!
    You cannot choose the conditions for a gunfight, so train in all conditions!

    Good choice. I have both and the DPMS is OK but the Bushmaster is way better.

    Until you try to go with iron sights, or try to stock up on spare parts, carry it for any length of time and then compare side by side and realize you paid a lot of cash for a gun that doesnt really do anything better than an nice AR... and all that comes from a Sig fan boy- they sure are nice, but not worth the aggravation IMO.

    I've had the 556 for about 2 months, have put about 750 rds thru it, mixed wolf, silver bear, barnual, brown bear, hp, fmj, sp etc, used pmags & hk mags. It has been flawless. A bit front heavy yes, but I really really enjoy the look of it and shooting it! So far no aggravation just lots of fun!

    You should also consider STAG.

    I would look at what the competitors in the 3-gun arena are using and go with the percentages; I am sure both weapons are fine examples' of Eugene Stoner's genius, and either would serve well.

    DPMS uses a very nice all black finish on their guns and offer some very nice lightweight rifles if that matters to you. I got their Lite-16 and am very happy with it. The Sig is a semi auto machine gun IMHO way too heavy. Good luck

    Of the two, I would have to say BM. Make sure you get the gas key and castle nut staked (as they do not do a very good job at the factory).

    For those BM fans out there, here is some interesting reading: A day in the life of a BM LE Dealer - M4Carbine.net Forums
